Read many of your posts and it is amazing how much weight you all have lost. I had Roux-en-Y in July of 2011 with Dr. Houseworth in Seattle.
It was the best thing I ever did. I have lost over 120 lbs. Still need to lose about 45 lbs. It sure is a life changer. I went from eating because it was something to do because of stress and depression to eating because I have to in order to survive. I also went from barely being able to walk to my car to walking three miles a day.
I have done all of this with out a support group, but I think it is time to reach out to a good community. It is hard doing this alone. Not sure if I am making sense by stating that.
Any way, I look forward to reading more of your success stories!
