My One Year Anniversary!



Recommended Posts

Well, my one year anniversary was on Sept. 27, 2012, and I am down 86lbs. I am very excited & blessed to have come thus far without any issues or problems. I am down from a size 26 to a 14W, from 296lbs to 210lbs. I am so close to "onederland"!! I am continuing on my journey with about 50lbs to goal. I will post pictures soon.

It has been an amazing journey. Before surgery, I had diabetes, high blood pressure, acid reflux, and lots of swelling. All diseases are gone, but still dealing with some acid reflux. I feel so much better physically and confidence level has skyrocketed. I am excited about continuing my journey in the coming months.

I am so happy for you. I am really shocked it has been 9 months for me, and what a difference it can make.

I think of where I would be right now if I had not had the surgery and it is actually scary to me...

"Where would I be right now if I had not had the surgery?"

what a thought - hmmmm interesting new topic??

whomever might be regretting WLS - possibly missing future events with their kids b'day parties/ holiday parties et al

with help of WLS, you will be nice and and healthy for that adoreable little b'day girl/boy

or not having had the WLS, being able to eat the whole b'day cake just not able to run around enjoying the party with your little one

btw Zoelife - not forgetting you

Congratulations, very inspirational and nice to NOT hear "I ONLY lost....blah blah blah". So many are so down for not losing 100 lbs in 6 months or whatever that magic number in their head is. Thank God for people like you who embrace it no matter how long it takes to lose it!! More people need to take note and be more positive, thank you for that!!!!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
