Topic: 10 Year Surgiversary!!!

I've been thinking about my LW's a lot this week! Today is my 10 year Surgiversary of for my Gastric Bypass. I give my Lightweights so much credit for my success!! I'm still in my "perfect" range. 118-120. Just had my check up at the Drs. last week and I was right in the middle. Still wearing the same dress pants I've worn for 7 years. Drying Cleaning keeps them nice and neat. I get my blood work done religiously and it's a good thing I do. I've got a few low numbers that I have to work on.

My menus haven't changed much. I'm still a routine eater. I do much better when I don't have to plan meals or take to much time thinking about food. I still drink my Matrix Mint Cookie Protein shakes, eat numerous small meals (more like snacks) throughout the day like meat/cheese, raw carrots, nuts, jerky, and beef sticks. Every work day for lunch I eat a Jimmy Dean Frozen Breakfast that has bacon, scrambled eggs, cheese, and a few potatoes. Dinner is a small version of what ever my hubby eats.

Posting on this site and being afraid of letting every one down is what kept me going on some days. It's all worth it in the end. Don't give in just face every day as it comes.

Every once in awhile I check in and read a few posts but I don't see many familiar faces which makes me sad. If any of the "oldies" check in send me a message and let me know how you are doing!

Topic: RE: VGS with BMI 35

I had my VSG about 2.5 months ago . My BMI was 35 . I also had no comorbidities, so this was an out of pocket expense for me. I did this for myself . I was also told by everybody that my weight was fine and that I should not do this. I have lost about 44 pounds since the surgery . I feel so much better about myself now. I have had my ups and downs, but I still feel like this was the right decision for me.

good luck on your journey!

Topic: RE: VGS with BMI 35

hello, my bmi fluctuates between 35.3 and 36.1 and I am scheduled for sleeve surgery this month. I am 51 and havent been able to budge the svale in the right direction for 3 years! I do have mild sleep apnea & a couple other commorbidities. If you can afford it, i say , why not? It could be just the tool you need.

I have heard many good outcomes with surgeries in Mexico, i think the key is getting a good medical tourism agency. Good luck to you

Topic: RE: Non-supportive people

Yes, I had my surgery 10 days ago. It's going pretty well so far, but I am looking forward to advancing to the pureed food stage this Friday, because I'm a little tired of the same old same old :)

I have actually told a fair number of people about my surgery, but not everyone. I kind of have taken the attitude that I would take insulin if I had diabetes, so why wouldn't I do this to combat obesity? Also, I've come to realize that I don't care as much about what people think as I thought. With age comes not giving a @#$&!

Topic: RE: Eating 6 times a day without losing control?

I'm going to be 10 years out and I still graze all day long. I try to stick to Protein and very low "bad" carbs. It works for me. If I get hungry then that's when I make bad decisions.

Well I'm guessing you have had your surgery by now...CONGRATS!

I'm going to be 10 years out in a couple of weeks. There have been a lot of posters over the years who never told anyone but immediate family even after they had WLS.
