Today I was thinking about the choices we make and how mine have lead me to this point in time. I think it all started last July when my mom suggested I look into lapband surgery and it got me thinking about having surgery. 

Then in November I saw a specialist about a health issue and they found I was also pre diabetic (which was completely unrelated to my issue at the time). I was referred to a nutritionist named Emily and started working towards being healthier. Because I was already seeing Emily, it made the whole process for gastric bypass easier. I had already completed one of the insurance criteria and had 6 months of documented weight loss history because of our appointments :-). 

All it really took to get the ball rolling on this crazy adventure was a blood test result and here I am 8 months later in a totally different mindset! Who knows where this will lead me from that one decision to see a different doctor (no offense to my primary doctor cuz he's awesome!). I am already happy and excited most of the time. I can't wait to also become less afraid of going out in public and having more self confidence overall. And most of all, being able to shop in all the cute stores! Ok I'm only half joking on that last one, but seriously I might become a shopaholic :-)
