I know I haven't been faithful to OH in recent years but I do try to check in occasianally. It has been over 9 years now since my surgery.  All is well.

I know I have gained some weight but the "scales of life" are balanced right now.  I started a 2nd career in nursing in 2003 when I entered an 11 month LPN program.  I kept going while working full time.  RN to BSN and now on December 14, 2012, I receive my Masters in Nursing degree.  What an awesome journey....it's been Divinely appointed!

Wow, I can't believe that I was one who vowed to stay in touch.  December marks my 2003 WLS.

Hi FRIENDS!

So Here I am 8 years post op and overweight again.  I woke up this morning with a renewed desire to take off the 35 pounds I had regained.  This was before I weighed this morning, alas it is now 40 pounds of regain.  My lowest weight was 143 and here I sit at 183!  NOT Happy with myself at all.  The surgery did not fail me...My mindset failed me.  I allowed food to take center stage again.  I got careless.  I started stopping for fast foods, drinking with my meals, eating no value foods and ignoring the needs of this tool.  The need is my cooperation!  I stopped drinking water and added carbonated soda's and this is what I get for it.  40 pounds re-gained!  I am done folks as of today I am back on the wagon and determined to lose these pounds.  Keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I once again wage war with my will.  I can't go back, I won't go back!  I am determined to see 140 and a size 10 AGAIN!

very similar...rny on Dec. 22, 2003.  Lost 158 and managed to keep most of it off.  I float between 200 and 226.  Harder to keep under control the older I get, but I'm determined to never get that big again.  Would love to get down to 145 or so, but we shall see.

Pick yourself up, look at those old "before" pics and find the ol' motivation that's just hiding a little right now.

Just checking in with everyone to see how you are doing.  I was thinking today that Dec 10th (less than a month away) will be my 8 yr anniversary -  my weight this morning was at 160 - since my lowest I have gained 20, but overall my goal is to get back to 145 where I felt the best.  Started working out some again, but it's hard not to eat junk.  I feel like I am back on the CARBS and addicted again - I know that i eat just to eat again- not just when I am hungery.....  any advise on how to get started again?

Even though I'd like to lose the extra 15 - I am still way better off then when I was 282 lbs.

Dear December 2003 Surgery Date friends,
Sorry I have not been on here in forever.  I still never made goal. I have maintained 105 lb weight loss but struggle every day.  I am looking into the "Rose Procedure". Has anyone had to look into this or having their surgery re-done?
I think I ma the only person in WLS history to still weigh 203 lbs. UGH...help me :-(

It has been way too long and I have lost contact with some wonderful friends.  Let me know how you are doing.  I am okay....gained some weight but i know it is due to a lack of exercise.  i am 9 credit hours away from my Masters in Nursing.  Still working full time as a School RN.  I am off for the summer (10 weeks) and looking forward to the birth of my 5th grandchild 11-11-11!  Hope everyone is doing well...let me hear from you!

It has been way too long since I have posted on OH.....I truelly believe in the decision to have WLS.  However, my  thots/brain has had so many adjustments.  I am 7 + years post op. Don't regret my decision and one moment.
