The Ongoing Journey

12:58 PM

Wow it has been a while since I posted.  So much is happening in my life that I thought it was time to get back to this use it as a diary of sorts about the journey I've started...

For those that know me, they know that for the last couple of years I've been working on losing weight.  This road has been difficult and I've been tempted to throw in the towel more times than I can tell you.  During the process I've discovered a lot about myself, I've changed my entire way of eating and I've come to a stronger relationship with God.  

At this point I feel I've done what I can on my own...I'm struggling to keep going.  It's now time to take the next step - Bariatric surgery.  I've always avoided this, but feel like it's the right thing to do at this point.  I know a lot of people will think I'm taking the easy way out, but this isn't going to be easy.  It's going to be one heck of a fight.  

I'm hoping to blog as much as I can about preparing for the journey and the aftermath of surgery, as honestly and as completely as possible for two reasons:  as inspiration and information for anyone else setting forth on this path, and also so that I can look back and see how far I've actually come!

You'll also see a book blog or two along the way.  I've kind of strayed from this but am looking forward to doing it again.

Love you all!

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
