Since my early 20s, I have been overweight. I wasn't diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis until my mid 30s. My levels were so out of whack, I had neuropathy in both legs among other issues. Once my levels were evened out, I still couldn't lose the weight. After years of chronic feet issues, and trapped in an abusive marriage.. I made the decision to leave behind my old life and start anew. The last chapter to be closed in my previous life was to have RNY bypass to try to control at least one of the symptoms of my thyroid disease and rid myself of the emotional eating that plagued me in my former life.  My surgery commenced on 4/13/21 and I've lost 25lbs since the start of my liquid diet. I had little issues after surgery and am thriving daily. I am looking forward to trying new recipes, exercising more and living the life I should have been 10 years ago.
