Today is my one year anniversary since VSG.  It has been an amazing year!  I am currently 80 lbs. lighter than I was this time last year, perfect blood stats, renewed energy and a bright outlook on my future (not to mention I look a whole lot better!).  Having the surgery was the best gift I have ever given to myself.  I will be 60 years old next month and plan on going whitewater rafting for my birthday celebration!  Thanks to all of you who post on a regular basis.  Your insights and encouragement means a lot to me!

Congratulation on your one year anniversary.  I'm only 3 weeks out, and can't wait until I'm where you are now.  Keep up the good work and I look forward to hearing from you on your 2nd anniversary.

Congrats! I can't wait to get there! I have 11 months to go, but planning a scuba diving vacation to celebrate. So excited to not have to worry about my size when diving!

Congratulations!  What a happy message.  I had weight loss surgery at 64, and I appreciate how nice it is to have more energy and new possibilities at this point in life! Enjoy the white water rafting. Great job working that sleeve!
