The lowest I can ever remember weighing in my adult life was 165. That was 20 years ago when my girls were young. When set
Today is my 5 month surgiversary! And let me preface this by reiterating that...I am not a Blogger! This journey has been triumphant at times, and trying at times. I do not wish to sugar coat my experience, but here goes!
My first meeting with my surgeon/weight loss facility was in January 16, 2017. I had surgery on June 14, 2017. I was also diagnosed with sleep apnea during this time period (February), since I needed a pre-existing condition for my insurance to cover WLS. The only w
