Happy 5th Birthday To Me!

Yes, my BIRTHDAY, because I was reborn the day I had my gastric bypass.  I just posted this on another thread, but I will share it again here:

I started out at 280 lbs, got down to 150 lbs after 18 months, bounced up to 173 lbs, and have recently taken it off and am down to 145 lbs.

I didn't get any type of revision. I began to exercise and watched my calories. It's tough, but our "tool" is still there (i.e. pouch). I did it because my workplace had a Biggest Loser competition and it was very motivating and fun!

I have been extremely fortunate and have had no ill side effects, other than the occasional dumping when I think I know better than my body does and want to eat a bunch of sugar or carbs LOL!

I hope everyone is doing well, and happy 5th anniversary/birthday to everyone!
