It's been nearly 3 years since we took that Giant step in regaining our health and lives! What a journey. My only regret is that this surgery wasn't around when I was in my 20's or 30's.
I see some people have regained some of their weight during this past year. How are you doing? Every day is a gift to me and I don't let a day pass when I don't appreciate every step I take each morning on my 2.5 mile walk up a hill in my neighborhood.
Six months after my RNY I had a total hip replacement and when I began this journey I couldn't walk from my stove to kitchen sink without a cane. My two surgeries gave me back my life! In 3 weeks to celebrate I'll be boarding a cruise ship in the Medeterranean.
Take one step at a time, one pound at a time, one surgery at a time and goals are met. My motto today is "Never Again".
I'd love to hear how you are all doing!
Love to all my brothers and sisters who share this surgerversary with me!
