The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

I guess this is as good a place as any to start.  The title is apt and I do thank you for joining me.

I’m a married mom of 2 boys. My husband retired from the Army in 2012.  I work – full time.

I’ve always felt like I was bigger than a lot of my friends.  It wasn’t always as big of a contrast as I thought – I’m tall.  Now – I’m sick of it.  Given my size, you’d think I’d have heard about it from doctors for years – I really haven’t.  Until about 3 weeks ago.  One doctor to whom I was sent to figure out a pain…asked a question and started a journey.

I’m embarking on Gastric Sleeve surgery.  I don’t have a date, yet.  I’m not ready to post any stats – I’ll get there.  I’ve completed most of the pre-op requirements.  I’ve worked on changing my eating (back…again…to more healthy).

I intend to update here.  Hopefully, I’m better at updating this than my other blogs…

Thanks for being here.
