Was working at an offsite location and one of the ladies at the site was talking about her bariatric surgery.  I have fought my weight since I was a teenager and needless to say I have always lost that battle, even after several wars.   So my ears perked up and I listened as she told all about her surgery and weight loss.  I had always been curious about weight loss surgery but thought it way to costly and impossible for me.  But the more I listened the more I thought I should at least check it out.  So I started asking questions.  Called the doctor she went to that afternoon, got an appointment the following week and found out it was a possibility for me.  I finally had hope that I could lose weight.  That was April of 2015.  June 1st, 2015 is my surgery date for RNY.
