I had surgery 1 year ago, and I'm feeling great. Although I have hit a stall , since mid Jan I have not lost, but nor have I gained. I have times when I'm frustrated but then I look back at where I started and I have to say WOW to all the changes. I've gone from a size 22/24 pant to a 10/8 pant , a 2x top to M and sometimes a small. I started this at 266 and now I'm at 159, thats 107 lbs hopefully gone forever!!! I'm exercising and am hooked on it who would of thought!!! I have to say yes its has been a big change in my lifestyle with what goes into the "mouth" but all the "good" changes out weight the bad by far. A big shout out to my surgeon , the RNY procedure and everyone on this site for all the info and support I gotten over the last 1 1/2 years, even if I was mostly "lurking" about.

Wow! I wish I had taken measurements!  I did have a Wow moment last weekend.  I grabbed my fanni pack (yes, very 90's but functional!) as we were packing for the Long Beach Grand Prix. Tossed my stuff in there and threw it in the car. Hadn't used it in two years as last year on that weekend I was 2 days post op and missed the race. Put it on and realized it was adjusted as large as it could go from when I used it two years before. When I adjusted it I realized even the smallest adjustment size was way to big and had to knot it over to make it work for the day.  It really made me "see" the inches I had lost in the waist!
