Hello, I just had my rny gastric bypass surgery on March 18 (1 day before my 50th Birthday!)  I have been overweight most of my life.  When I married my husband I weighed 199 lbs and then we had 4 sons with  a 30 lb weight gain with each child I had creeped up to my high weight of 326 and decided it was time to stop.  After months of counseling and nutritionist visits I was cleared by my insurance to have the surgery.  The day of the surgery I weighed in at 299 and today I checked the scales and I am at 288, even though this is quite a challenging time with me with the healing and the all liqued diet I am doing well.
