I’m Toni. I’m married to a wonderful person and we have four kids, ages 19 through 7. We both work very sedentary jobs and spent the first two years of our marriage having to travel (and mostly eat out) a minimum of two weekends per month. My husband still travels quite a lot. I share all that to note that over the last ~12 years, we’ve both gained weight and my husband is taking action.

He decided to have a gastric sleeve surgery this summer. We’ve officially jumped through all the hoops necessary to get a surgery date. It’s Tuesday, December 12th. I’m planning on sharing how the process goes. Please comment and share anything you think others would find helpful or that you need to tell someone, but please, please, please no hate. This blog is a community for encouragement.
