Someday I will write a big, long story - when I am a size 7!  Right now it's only been 5 short months since surgery, almost 9 months since I started my pre-op diet - and I'm only down like 95 pounds.  OMG I HAVE LOST ALMOST 100 LBS. in WAY less than a year!  Who says RNY is faster?? Here are some so-far facts: BP before starting pre-op diet, 200/100.  Medications: Atenolol & Hydrochlorothiazide (those are just the BP ones).  BP last Saturday: 110/70.  Medications: None. NONE!  Of ANY kind!!! BMI at start: 46. at surgery: 42. Last Saturday: 30 (almost 29, no longer "obese!")  Pants size at start: 22/24.  Pants size now: 12 or 14. Miles per day then: 4.  Miles per day now: 8 to 15.  Chins at start: 3.  Chins now: Just the one!  I wasn't using the other two anyways :-)
Thanksgiving 2009 update: I am now 9 months out from surgery and I have lost 116+ pounds. I can't believe that I am only 13 lbs. from goal! These last pounds are tough, but they do keep slowly coming off!  I lost at a rate of 3 lbs. a week (average - some weeks none!) for months, then suddenly slowed to 1 lb. a week.  Fine with me!  Current BMI: 27.  Current size: 10 pants, suits and dresses; medium tops.  I'm normal, I am smaller than I was in high school.  I shop in the Junior's section and I LOVE IT!
