Welcome and good luck with your goal! If your physician is 'pushing' gastric bypass, ask him (or her) why. I'm not so much in favor of that but I have found out lately that it has some very powerful arguments for it - one is that it can help if you are diabetic or headed toward diabetes. Maybe that is one thing your physician is thinking about in your case.

Whatever the reason, the decision is yours. There are tools here to help you monitor your progress and nutrition. As you said, you can do it!
