Hello,
My name is Tally and I currently live in the Bay Area and earlier this year I made the choice and commitment to take care of ME...I've been struggling with my weight most of my life and have tried many tactics to rid myself of the extra pounds...But in the most recent years, I have found that most of my health-related issues are due to my excessive weight....I want to live life and be able to have great memories and most importantly not die because of weight contributed illnesses...So, I did my research and had my first appointment with my PCP and had a favorable conversation with him and to have his support meant alot...Next, was sharing with my hubby my desire...and by grace he has been supportive throughout this journey...so you may ask where am I within this journey...well let me share...


[b] So today was my first 1 of 6 appointments with my...So today was my first 1 of 6 appointments with my surgeon...Very informative and overwhelmed with hand-outs...but so..so EXCITED...I had to set-up an appointment for a endoscopy, psych eval, and dietician and I got all that done today...so as you can see I super on it and anxious...I hope to develop a rapport with everyone and read about others' experiences and get those "nail biting" questions answered.[/b]


[b] Making ProgressJust Checking In....Since my last post...I had my psych evaluation today with Linda-great conversation and it was reflective....I really felt affirmed once again for making this life-changing event-I felt a major high from telling Linda that I'm committed to taking care of Tally...Next,I met with the GI doctor this past Friday and my endoscopy is scheduled for 11th of July...Man this is really feeling REAL....YaY![/b]

P.S. Decided on my celebration when I stable from my surgery...Going to the amusement park and riding EVERY single ROLLER COASTERfeeling REAL....YaY!
