    Kim purple

    I feel 200% better and amazingly enough I look just like my high school graduation picture and I took that 21 years ago. When I go home and run into my former classmates they all say the same thing " You havent changed a bit" If they only knew. LOl.....

    @ Jrzydva is suggest that you start working out as soon as you can after surgery and to be honest I don't work out all the time but I am a dancer and have always been even when I was heavy and I think that helped out alot with toning. I am still a work in progress but thank God I am not where I use to be. I am excited for you and I can't wait to read your success story a year from now!!!!!

    Acid Reflux Is Killing Me

    Depending on when your surgery was, it should get better about 3 to 4 months in. At one point I took Prilosec and then graduated to calcium tums. I hardly ever have to take anything if I stay away from spicy foods and I can't lay down to quickly after eating.
  12. Well in the beginning my immediate family knew and a couple of close friends. I was actually in transition with my job so I got new coworkers that didn't really say much about my weight loss. I am really involved in church and I hate to admit it but thats the place where I lied the most about it. I told them I had my gall bladder removed. Well after about 6 months of lieing I decided , none of them had a heaven or hell to put me in and in the end of the day I still looked fabulous!!!! Amazingly enough I began to tell women who are overweight what I did when they would ask and alot of them seemed let down because I didn't have some magic pill or diet to tell them about. I tell them that it is not as easy as day surgery and your whole life changes but It is so worth it. I stand now almost a year out and I don't mind telling anyone what I did and I then say " Now go run and tell that" , cause at the end of the day I still wear a size 2/4 in everything including my underwear. LOL!!!!!!
