Hello everyone. I am a 34 year old mother of 2. I am scheduled to have Gastric Bypass on August 23, 2007. My decision to go through surgery is based on living a healthier life for myself and to be around to take care of my children. I have been going through this process since December 2006. My insurance company was a reason for the delay. They require 8 weeks of a program called Healthy Roads which lasted almost three months. It was very educational and it help with my eating habits before the surgery.
