Judy, Congratulations! I too continue to be amazed at WLS and the results many of us have obtained. It is truly a modern medical miracle that allows us to "live" again.

It's been a long long time since I have visisted this board and I miss you all and hope you are all doing well.  I have gained about 40 pounds since my surgery, but I have maintained at my current weight for the last couple of years, so I am still proud of myself!!!  I just wanted to say Happy 5 year surgiversary to all of the October 2006ers out there!!!

 Just got an email that I am five years since my surgery.  Wow.  Hard to believe 5 years ago I was 299 lbs.   I currently 168 lbs.   My lowest was 160 lbs.    Got as high as 185lbs, but with a little tweak to my diet (back to more protein) and less snacking, it was pretty easy to stablize back in the 160's.   I guess I  should be proud!   

This is the first time in my life I am actually wearing out my clothes!   WOW!

Hi Ev
I am really so glad surgery worked for you. I noticed that nearly 30 people have viewed the post but did not tell how they are doing? I hope they are happy with their results from surgery. I wish more people leave their feedback (positive or negative). I also hope most of us are healthier than before surgery. I know I am.

I look in from time to time, but it seems that everyone has moved on.  I hope they are doing so well that they spend most of their time AWAY from the computer.

I am one of the lucky ones with WLS.  I got to goal, and  I've kept off most of the weight I lost.  It's been one of the best things I have ever done for myself.

And you?  How are you doing?

Best wishes.
