I am sooo happy! One year ago I went through RNY and it was the best decision of my life! I am now walking with a walker and sometimes a cane. Standing to cook, dust, and do laundry. My hubby calles me "Boney Butt" **laughs** To top it all off last night when we went to bed he slipped an arm over me and said "Damn you're skinny woman!" Now I am far from skinny still but it sure made me feel good. I have gone from 339 to 190 today.A size 6X and 32 to a med and a 14 pants I know I have a long road still ahead but look how far I have came! WOW! I am so so happy! The only meds I need now are asthma and thyroid(our vitamins of course too)I was on 29 meds and 4 insulin shots a day.Diabetes is gone. 7 years in a power chair(had polio) Unable to walk or stand more than a minute or two. ** stands up and kicks that chair hard** Look at me now!!!!!!To all of you who feel you haven't gotten to where you want.. LOOK HOW FAR WE'VE COME! **points behind us** The road ahead is not NEAR NIGH as long! **CHEERS** We can and will do it! YAY ! GO! **!!!!!!!!!!!!
