As of September 15, 2007, I am two years post-surgery on my Gastric Bypass surgery. It was a huge life altering event in my life. I have had wonderful support from my family and friends…and I have changed my lifestyle tremendously!
I have lost a total of 115 lbs…I could lose more, but have gotten relaxed in my eating habits. I still weigh myself every day to make sure I am not gaining…so I can alter things to make sure I don’t end up back at 325 lbs (see above picture).
Please, if you know someone who is considering this surgery…support them. This is a very serious decision to make in one’s life…it is usually the last avenue for people, I know it was for me!
I am always willing to talk to anyone about my experience with the Roux-en-Y procedure and my wonderful surgeon.
