Weight Loss Journey

One of the main reasons for this blog is to help me with my weight loss journey. I will be having Gastric Bypass Surgery on June 8th, and I am very excited for the changes that will be happening in my life. I figured this would be the easiest way to keep everyone posted.

I have gone through almost all of my classes and only have my surgery orientation class left on June 6th. I am really looking forward to using this tool to achieve my goal. HEALTH.

I have been overweight for most of my life. I started gaining weight in Jr. High and went up from there.

I am really looking forward to living life to its fullest.

Some things I would like to accomplish:

  • Go on rides with my children. (like DisneyLand & Lagoon)
  • Be able to run after my kids and catch them. :)
  • Wake up not in pain.
  • Go hiking with my family.
  • Go swimming with kids and have fun doing it.
  • Fit in my van seat belt without the extender.
  • Sitting in a lawn chair without worring that I will brake it.
  • Going on a bike ride.
  • Owning a bike.
  • Running a marathon.
  • Buying clothes in a normal store.
  • To go dancing.

There are soo much more, but it is late and I will list more later.

I can't wait to start my journey!!
