Let's Give Them Something to Blog About

OK, it has been over two years. I am aware of this fact. I have never felt like I had anything very interesting to talk about, so I didn't keep up with the blog. I have also never felt like I was that great of a writer. I have had a change of heart, and decided to join the blog bandwagon once again. Some days may be more interesting than others, but at least I will be blogging something right?

On April 6th, I will be undergoing Gastric Bypass Surgery. I have a lot of friends who will be wondering about the progress I make during this journey in my life, and I think that it will be a lot easier if I just blogged about it.

It has been a long process and I have contemplated whether or not this is the right decision. I weighed the pros and cons of the surgery. I went through a 6 month diet and exercise plan with the help of my dietitian and Dr. and decided that GBP was the surgery that would be most successful for me. All my paperwork was submitted to my insurance company in Jan. and about 2 weeks later I was approved! I am nervous, but excited about the outcome. I know that the road will be bumpy and at times, even long. For me, the sacrifice is small compared to the reward.

Awesome Jen! I'm so excited to hear about your journey!

What are you talking about? That was a perfectly elegant post. Your writing skills are great. I've seen some pretty bad blogs and yours isn't even in the same hemisphere (sometimes I wonder how the person graduated HS).
As for the surgery... Good luck. I'm sure you'll do great. And most of all your head is in the right place. You understand that this isn't some miracle cure and that you'll have to work hard for your results beyond the first month. You're in my prayers and I'm excited to follow your journey.

Good Luck, Jen! I'm sure that was a hard decision to make, I hope all goes as smoothly as possible after the surgery. I've seen awesome results in people I know, good luck! :-)

Jen, you have always been such a special young lady to me. You have always been a huge part of our family. I think you started babysitting Adam when he was like three years old, is that about right? My children know their Jennifer-fer-fer and love her. I will keep you in our prayers and thoughts constantly. Love ya,
