16 years status post rny....

Dec 05, 2017

Wow, it's been 16 years since my gastric bypass. 

While most people know me more for my being reversed, I am still now supportive of weight loss surgery as an interevention for Obesity and while I defend people's right to be upset or devastated for having a bad outcome, I definitely defend and understand those who were happy they had weight loss surgery and/or had an optimal outcome. 

So I still will remain as a resource for support as a long term vet, where in my case, and I have gained some weight this year, where I'm glad I kept a significant amount off (almost 1/2 my excess weight -53lbs) but at the same time, it's not helpful to me, at least to dwell constantly on what I eat, what I weigh, what I look like, all the time. 

That's not saying I don't make an effort to keep some weight off, I didn't go through everything I did, to both dwell on weight matters too much, at the same time, it would be sad for me to have gone through everything I have, for it to be for nothing, either.
