Due to stress in my life, until recently I have completely neglected my health and it shows. I have decided to have a gastric bypass. I have started the process and expect to have a date for around the New Year. It was a very hard decision and has more to do with my health than vanity. I can expect to be off my diabetes and blood pressure meds when I leave the hospital. I may even be free of sleep apnea at some point.
To be honest going through this process has been a real wake up call. I was not even sure I would qualify for the procedure. But I did. WLS is not an easy fix. It is simply a tool. The fact is you can find as many people who have failed after WLS as who have succeeded.
I have decided to do whatever I have to do to increase my chances of success.
So this is the plan so far...
1) Track everything I eat
2) Drink 8+ H20 daily
3) Give up Diet soda/soda
4) Consistently JOURNAL/post(the hardest for me)
