My name is Cathy and I thought I would make a little post introducing myself. I'm 23 years old and I'm currently in graduate school getting my master's degree in Biotechnology with a specialization in Biodefense and Biosecurity. I have a blue belt in karate. My family considers me the family historian as I do A LOT of genealogical research on my ancestors and I have 1-3 book shelves just filled family history stuff (documents, pictures, etc.). 

Anyways, I recently had bariatric surgery on February 22nd, 2018. The type of bariatric surgery My highest weight ever was somewhere between 359 lbs-360 lbs and that was during the 6 months of supervised diet and exercise I has to do because of insurance. When I first started this process, my weight at my first consult ever with the surgeon was 342 lbs. My weight at my last consult with surgeon was 349.8 lbs. When I started to do the special pre-op diet (for me, they had me do two weeks of eating really small and healthy meals and then I had to do the one week of the liquid diet), my weight was 348.2 lbs. On the day of surgery, my weight was 333.2 lbs. So, I lost about 15 lbs on this specialized 3 week diet. My weight right now is 308.6 lbs. So, since I had the surgery, I have lost a total of about 24.6 lbs. 

Can't wait to meet everyone on here!
