July 4th, 2020:
I’ve been obese practically my entire life. I remember my mom putting me on my first diet in the 3rd grade. I also remember my mom body shaming me for most of my life, until I became an adult and moved out. I moved out when I met my husband at 29 years old. We have two awesome little dudes, Phillip and William. Phillip is on the Autism Spectrum and William has a speech delay (and is too young to diagnose Autistic yet). I decided to make a permanent change in my lifestyle to be here as long as I can for my little dudes and my husband, John.
I started seeking bariatric surgery In June 2020, when my gastroenterologist mentioned that the only way to repair my painful hiatal hernia was to have bariatric surgery (or lose over 150 pounds so they would do the surgery). Since I’ve been in pain and discomfort for a few weeks now (started early June), I opted to look into gastric bypass, because I have GERD. I had my first consultation with my surgeon, Dr. Klar at ALSA in Fresno, CA on June 29, 2020. I just began my sleep study, and Monday morning I will be doing my initial bloodwork.
