The Journey Began
So if you haven't read twitter (@jamesyounce) or facebook, then you're probably wondering what the hell I have been talking about.
After years of struggling with obesity, I am determined to have gastric bypass surgery. This is going to consume and/or invade possibly every aspect of my life for a long period of time -some of those times more difficult or easier. So I felt this was worthy enough to blog about in 'journey' style as I call it.
I will share my experience with everyone so that others considering it may have some insight, some who have done it can share, and the family of those considering or currently going through it can have another perspective to read about.
I am definitely not the first person to blog about this experience, and I encourage those interested to search for other stories. I do hope to share more of the overall process details and not just my own personal achievements.
You can follow the mini updates on Twitter @jamesyounce then filter the tweets using the hashtag #jazzyjourney. All of my tweets with that hashtag will be about the gastric bypass.
So far I've attended the informational seminar at St. Joe East in Lexington. For comparison, I'm attending a similar seminar tomorrow at Georgetown Community Hospital. I'll give more details tomorrow. Nite nite!
