I started this journey in October of 2013. I went to Dr. T and he had me go to do an Upper GI, some blood work, and a few other appointments.

The process has taken about a year and has been an incredibly long journey but has been totally worth it and an eye opening experience in regard to my relationship with food. I would definitely recommend everyone do research on the best procedure for you. I was originally sold on gastric bypass... READ MORE

I started my journey earlier this year at the end of July beginning of August. I am currently scheduled for surgery in just over 2 weeks.

Recently one of my kids asked me why I wasn't in any of our family photos. That question stopped me in my tracks. I can't deny it, I've been the "phantom participant" for most of my kids' life. And that saddens me immensely, but I cannot change the past. But I can change this path going forward.... READ MORE
