I've been waiting a year to get to a surgery date for my RNY. I'm proud to say I have gone from 297lbs to 252lbs on my own, over the past year and finally have a surgery date. I'm 13 day says away from surgery and currently doing my liver shrinking (liquid) diet. I've had so many people try and discourage me but, they don't realize the health issues that the weight has caused me. Hopefully this will be a good place of support and positive vibes.

Thanks for listening (well technically for reading lol)

Anytime. Be prepared for some life changes. But in your favor. Not sure if you're religious or not. But if so stay prayed up. Find something positive to stay motivated even if it's a will to live healthy and stay alive.😇😇😇

      From Combo to ala carte, my how meals have changed. Hubby and I would both get combo meals, and be able to finish them and that's after finishing off a basket of chips and salsa! These days we get ala carte or even share a combo. And I'm trying to be more conscious of the small bites. And trying to eat a little something in between. That is harder as I have always tried not to snack in between meals, but lately by the time it was time to eat, I'm not taking the time to chew and then it all goes down hill from there.  Still working on it and feeling the body changing YES!

      NSV: yesterday a business man came into to see one of the bosses. He gave me a candy bar first and then the paperwork. I said I would be sure to give to supervisor. he says no candy is for you. I said its ok, he was , NO ITS FOR YOU. I said thank you , that I had had weight surgery so I tend to stay away from candy. He looked at me up and down and said you don't need surgery (probably didn't understand what I had said).  It's nice knowing that I look fit enough to where I would not need one, lol. Working out 25 out of 31 days definitely helps!
