My Weightloss Journey

Hi, my name is Meredith.  After many years of struggling with my weight I finally said, ENOUGH!  In August 2008 I started on a journey toward better health.  To help me on this journey I chose weightloss surgery, in particular Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery.  My surgery was December 12th, 2008.  Dr. William Chapman at the Brody School of Medicine in Greenville, NC is my surgeon
 
I have had sleep apnea, arthritis in my hips, and high blood pressure.  Along the journey these issues have resolved as I've lost my excess weight.  I no longer have sleep apnea, I've had a hip replacement and can walk well with little or no pain in my other hip, and I'm completely off blood pressure meds!  One of my big goals when my weight is gone is to go on vacation to Florida and spend several days on my feet without getting tired at Disney World, Epcot, and Universal Studios in Orlando.
