Not a blogger...

Friday, March 23, 2007

But I'll give it a try.

I'm going to be 40 in August and I've lost 125 pounds in the last 13 months with the help of RNY bariatric surgery. I've had my "window of opportunity" with the tool of surgery and now the rest is up to me.

I've been setting my alarm to an excruciatingly early hour every single weekday morning, to go to the gym BEFORE going to work and you know what? It's not as bad as I thought it would be...and I'm not alone! There are quite a few people there! And I love leaving the gym, knowing my workout for the day is behind me!

My family is made up of my husband, my nearly 20 year old son and my almost 18 year old daughter. We're all vegetarians and I think we're pretty close. They supported me through my decision to have the gastric by-pass procedure and have been very supportive in my continued efforts to lose weight/get healthier.

I was told about this site and it seems fantastic! I just hope I have the discipline to stick with it!

Guess that's it for now...I hope to meet a lot of people who are in the same boat so we can support each other!

In Peace, Light and Love,

    I'm sure you will be able to stick with it. I never could stick to a diet and when I did try my husband lost weight, I got discouraged and gave up. There are many great people here. The support and encouragement that you get is wonderful. I'm sure you will like it, I did and I also feel this is the best thing I have done for myself. Good luck to you! Karen
