I achieved my goal some months ago. 7 years out. My weight ranges from 119-123. I would never have thought it was possible 7 years later I would be saying that. However I met my goal in both eating correctly and various medical conditions that I am currently struggling with. I want to be honest, having this surgery is no joke. I wouldn't go back and do things differently, ie having the surgery. What I wish is that I really understood the extend of how my life would change so that I could make a more informed decision of yes i want the surgery. I know that this is controversial, but I am putting it out there anyway. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I thought I knew what I was getting into. I really didn't. How many mechanics do you know that forgot to put oil in their car and the engine blew up. You may not realize it but these things happen. Doctors forget self-care. Nurses also are kinder to their patients than to themselves. Have a great day. My message is If I Can Do It You Can Do It. Never give up on living the Magnificent Life.
