Hello, my name is Kathy and I am 39 years old. I have a wonderful husband and 3 kids that are very active. I would like to improve my life so I can enjoy every minute with them (and have the energy to do it)....lol I have struggled with my weight for about 15 years or so. I WAS an emotional eater. I have learned that food can no longer be my friend. I was just recently introduced to this website by a very smart lady named Julie. So I am totally new at all this stuff that goes along with it. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. The pictures I have chosen to post for now are of my kids. Since I do not allow pictures of myself to willingly be taken. Well not yet anyway. Hopefully this will change with time and knowledge on how to deal with loosing the extra weight I have packed on over the years. Good luck to all and God Bless.

Below is my progress from the day I decided to do this. I have tried to weigh in every week (not at first though):

    Hey Kat!

    Thanks for your very nice comment on my page! March 25th is right around the corner!! You are going to do great! I got home from my surgery on Saturday and I'm feeling pretty good and before you know it you will be back home too!

    Good luck with the liquid diet - it wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting. The shakes are pretty filling (I was on Optifast Shakes), and I actually began to look forward to them. Putting them in a blender with ice makes them better too!

    Congratulations and Good Luck! You will be great! emoticon

    Good luck with your liquid diet. Just think of it this way - the weight you lose before surgery is behind you - yah!

    Hopefully, your two weeks will go by fast.

    Best wishes.

    Thanks so much for the post to my page and the welcome! I actually joined the team to get some insight for myself, as my hubby's surgery date is March 18th, just a week before yours! We've been doing the liquid diet together since last Monday. If you haven't started that yet, good luck! It's not as bad as it seems... :-) Best wishes as your date nears!! (Oops, this posted under my husband's account, we were sharing the laptop!! But this is jlsnyder actually!)

    THanks for stopping by my website. I had the gastric bypass on October 6, 2008. I have lost about 57 pounds - about twenty before my surgery. It is the best thing that I have done for myself.
    I had been turned down a couple of times and finally got accepted - so I took the plunge! It is so nice to be able to eat anything but you definitely have portion control. I fill up fast which is okay - I can still enjoy my food - just let of it. I have hit a plateau for the past month - but I know it will get moving again - and I am enjoy the size reduction. I have even been able to get into a 16 - so I still have a long ways to go - but it sure is nice seeing the scale go down.

    Best wishes - if I can help you in any way - just let me know.
