No One In The Sixties?



Recommended Posts

Where are all you baby boomers? I had surgery on 9/24...two weeks ago. Down 40 before surgery...20 after...60 total. I did lots of prep before surgery (exercise...lean green diet 3 months...immense amount of research) . So glad i did...sailed through surgery and in only 2 weeks feeling great! We baby boomers are tough. I still have 100 lbs to go but have a new lease on life...never too old to learn...look out to my grandkids...her comes a new granny...lucky if you can keep up with her!

You GO Girl. Great attitude. I became a Grandma for the first time 5 months ago, had my surgery 2.5 weeks ago. The turning point for me was wanting to play with that baby girl and wanting to live to see her grow,

I am 57 and my biggest reason for wanting to have the rny is to be healthy to enjoy my grandchildren., They are my motivation. I have been so blessed I need to be able to enjoy the blessings and make memories with them.

Here is to healthy grannies

We really need a Healthy Granny group! I certainly want to be with them for as long as possible...but it is the QUALITY of time I am really going to enjoy...hiking with them...biking with them...just getting down on the floor with them. They are 3/5/7/9...

I had surgery on 5/29 at 60. 56 pounds down and around 50 to go. My grandchildren are getting a new grandma. This week finally below 200 for the first time in 30 years. I would rather spend my remaining 30-40 years in good health!

My surgery date is 12/13. Am 60 years old. My doc said it used to be unusual for folks our age to have the surgery but our numbers are growing. Right now I am at 412. Starting the three-day-protein drinks today

So glad to see other tough baby boomers here! I'm 63 and am having band to rny revision on Monday. I went to the hospital this morning to have my pre-op tests done and to finish the paperwork.

Nervous and excited! I wonder how much our age factors into complications and recovery. Any ideas?

Good luck Glennr--you are just a few days after me. Vicki had her surgery yesterday. Granny, you are an inspiration and give me hope for great results--even at our age!! (don't you just love that expression...)

Thank much

My doc says the complications from age have been reduced dramatically because there has been a rash of people born in the late 40s and 50s having the surgery. My wife is more nervous than I am

Glad to find others over 60. My RNY surgery was 10/15/12. I started the process in February, 2012 at 236. Came home from the hospital at 218 and I'm 189 as of this morning.

I hope all of you are doing well too.
