I am a 46 y/o married woman living in SW FL. I have been "fat" my whole life. My earliest "fat discrimination" memory is from 1st grade when we were having a Peter Pan musical production and I wanted so badly to be a Tinkerbell (there were multiples). I danced my little heart out hoping for that role and the teacher patted my stomach and said, "I think you would make a better Peter Pan." Even at that tender age, I knew it was because I was not a lithe and graceful creature.

I was 350+ at my highest (my scale did not start reading until 350). I am thinking I may have been around 380. I lost a bit before the scale registered. Then I lost 106 lbs. more on Weight Watchers and did really well until I got married :) Then I stopped being all about me and started being all about "us." I just haven't been able to get back on that track.

So, I just had RNY gastric bypass on July 15th, 2009. Check in and see how it goes!

My Goals:
My basic and general goal is to lose weight, be healthy and fit to be around for a long and happy life with my younger husband, my children and my new grandboy!


My Program:
Just had RNY gastric bypass surgery. Starting out on clear liquid diet for one week, then full liquids for one week, the puree for one and soft foods for another. After that, it is pretty much low carb as my pouch will tolerate and adding in some activity and exercise!

    aww thanks girly! ya i know it's hard to track on here and i do what i can as well, i track manually, ie i use a real life journal,, i've come to find that using my ipod is just too much multitasking for me lol. i like writing anyways and i found out that it suits me better to do this way, i just want to be on spark people for support, but i still wanna track on here just in case people want to know what i'm eating... we'll all get to goal! it's just a matter of time!
