About me..

Sep 30, 2010

My name is Heather. I am a military wife and a mother. My daughter will be two November 27th. I am a stay at home mom and daycare provider. My daughter loves having other kids around to play with and it gives me something to do during the day.

I have struggled with my weight my entire life, and I've decided that it's time to do something before I start developing some serious health problems. Like many people who are extremely overweight, I've tried pretty much every diet in the book, and I've stopped and started with the whole exercise bit over and over. I know if I dont do something drastic to change the way I live, I wont be alive much longer. I want to be around to see my daughter and maybe my grandkids grow up some day.

I have recently started the process of getting Gastric Bypass surgery. I have Tricare medical insurance through the military so my healthcare is 100% paid for, nothing out of pocket, so I figure there's nothing holding me back from getting this surgery and starting a new life. I know I'll have to change how I live and I'm okay with that. I just want to be healthy and happy. How I look doesnt even really factor in at this point. I'd just like to be able to play with my daughter without getting winded, or walk up the stairs to my second story apartment without sweating to death.. I'm prepared for all the changes, and I know it'll be hard but I am 100% certain it will all be worth it in the end. If it gives me even one more day with my friends and family, I'll take it and be happy!

If you've had or will have this surgery I would be more than happy to talk to you and maybe learn something about this whole process! I would love any advice or experiences you would like to share with me!
