I am 52 years old and I am a widow with 3 sons.
I began this journey almost one year ago. I have spent a life time looking after my family and everyone else. Now it is time to take care of myself. I am not feeling the greatest and I am tired of lugging around all this excess weight. I have chronic pain issues and I am hoping this journey will help me reach my goal to better health and happiness. I am being followed at the weight management clinic at the Ottawa Hospital and awaiting surgery for the Roux En Y Gastric Bypass.
