I'm only beginning my RNY journey as of last month. After years of stress eating, dieting and always gaining back more than I lost, I have decided to take the journey once and for all. At first I was 'just investigating.' After my first meeting with my surgeon last month and many weight loss seminars, I have made the final plan to go forward. I have high blood pressure, sleep apnea, high cholesterol and asthma! I need help! I'm still a tiny bit fraid of having no choice but to put the food down and learn new eating habits, but with the proper guidance from my nutritionist and surgeon as well as local support groups, I have to do this for my health, my future!
