My Journey Toward A New Life

Following the advice of some friends, I’ve decided to keep a journal of my Gastric Bypass.  I’ll try to update it daily and keep it as real as I can.  The first step to keeping it real is showing you a recent picture of myself and giving you my weight – this is where I stop and pray and ask God to give me the strength to do this and help me to not become full of anxiety or sink deeper into depression.  So here goes:  This picture was taken Thanksgiving 2006 and I don’t know my exact weight but it was around 330 lbs.  I’m the one in the pink sweater.
