2 Years post RNY
November 8, 2012 2:38 am

About 2 1/2  years ago I made a the life changing decision to get healthy and make myself a priority. Two years ago today I had RNY and I haven't regretted it for a second. Looking back my physical, emotional and spiritual journey has been an amazing one. I feel so much better physically. Little things that I can do now still amaze me on occasion like tying my shoes without having to hold my breath and taking the stares without my knees hurting. Emotionally I'm stronger and more self confident. Through this process I've learned that I matter and that its ok to make myself a priority. Spiritually it seems like a weight has been lifted. Because of my confidence I've had a more open mind and taken advantage of new experiences that I wouldn't have before. In taking better care of myself I've taught my son how to eat more healthy and in learning how to better communicate my husband and I are stronger than ever. I'm LIVING my life and LOVING it! I can't figure out how to attach a picture so I've uploaded a before and after on my profile. Total LBs lost 143

Roughing it. (1yr 8mo post op w/pic)
July 10, 2012 5:41 am
    I just went camping for the first time since I had my RnY. Ive done physical things since and did just fine but it still amazes me what I'm physically capable of now that the weight is off. I went real camping in Yosemite. What I mean by real camping is no running water, no electricity and I had to hike 3 1/2 miles on rough terrain to get to the camp site. Because its was rural camping, anything you want to have with you you have to carry in. I had such a great time and cant wait to do it again. I couldn't believe that after the hike and after setting up camp I still had energy to spare. I'm living life and loving it.

1 1/2 years post op w/ pic
May 11, 2012 1:49 pm

A year and a half! Man does time fly!  I'm doing great and feel awesome.  Ive finally made it to my goal weight of 145 which brings me to a total of 142 pounds lost.  That's just shy of half of myself!  I have to admit that it didn't really hit me until my 17 year old son told me that that's what he weighs.  That blew my mind.  I cant believe I was carrying that much extra weight around with me.  Any way, I have included a Before and After pic.  Thank you for taking the time to peek at my blog. (Not sure why the pictures are so small you can see them full sized in my photo album)

11 months post-op w/pic - life is gooood!
October 2, 2011 1:48 pm
   Ok I'm a week away from being 11 months post op but I found a few minutes to jot a few words down now so I'm going to take advantage of it.  Wow, what a change its been for me physically and emotionally.  Physically Ive never been better, emotionally Ive had my ups and downs.  Who would have thought being thinner than you have ever been in your life would make you more self conscious?  I am however feeling great and my self esteem is finally getting back on track.  Learning how to carry myself and dress this new body has been a fun challenge.  A challenge I am totally up for.  Ive never had so much energy.  Ive finally allowed myself to start investing in cloths now that I'm only about 5 pounds away from my goal.  As of today, Ive lost a total of 122 pounds.  I have included a before and after pic so you can see what a transformation Ive been through.  Im looking awesome and feeling spectacular.  Life is good.
