I KNOW there are people out there reading posts. How about a moment to stop by and introduce yourself. Lets get this site rolling again. I want to hear about MO, what are you all doing, not just WLS. Are you farmers, gardeners, going on exotic vacations or like me work from home. I am 3 months revision to DS from VSG (really a two parter DS surgery) Down 60 lbs since revision surgery. Come on jump in the water is warm!!
It would be nice to revive this board. It was very active 5 years ago when I had my surgery, but the lady that kept it going, moved and no one participated. I rarely check it, but would if we could get it going again.
My RNY was 7/8/08. I lost about 70 lbs. and have maintained my loss, except for a few lbs. up and down, since 2009. I would like to lose another 20-25 lbs., but not sure that will ever happen. I eat according to plan, but I don't exercise like I should.
I live in Kansas City with Max, my husband, and 2 Shiz Tzus. I retired from my job last August and love retirement. My hobbies are quilting, reading, scrapbooking and cooking. I do a lot of quilts for children which I donate to various charities.
I volunteer with Literacy Kansas City and Sheffield Place.
You have done great losing 60 lbs. in 3 months!!

What can we do to get it going, The lady that kept it gong moved to Ecuador for her and her husbands retirement. I LOVED her stories about her gardens. As I gain my mobility back I look forward to this fall and planting some bulbs for the spring. I had sod put down this spring as the sweltering heat and draught killed by Zoysia lawn last year. I have a hard time believing I will be able to do more and more things. I fear falling down and breaking a hip or just not being able to get up. I live alone at this time. I cannot even make a decision about what to buy if I should order from LB again as re sale shops do not carry my size in used clothing. I keep thinking that I will never be a smaller size so I keep wearing my clothes that are 5 sizes too big. I can really be called a bag ( baggy) lady in my clothes. I wonder if others have the fear of failure, and cannot plan for success.
Doing my pre-op supervised diet for the sleeve. Grew up in KC and live in south suburbs. And as you guessed from the profile pic I have a dog! His name is Bo. I only grow weeds in my garden. :)
What shall I return to the Lord for all his bounty to me?
I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the Lord, I will pay my vows to the Lord in the presence of all his people. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful ones.
O Lord, I am your servant; I am your servant, the child of your serving girl. You have loosed my bonds. -- Psalm 116:12-16
I had my RNY in May of 2005 at DePaul by Dr De La Torre before he moved to Des Peres Hospital. I can't believe that I will be 10 years out in May of this coming year. I just started a new job after being off work due to a layoff for 11 months. I am trying to get back on track since the past few years I have noticed that the weight started creeping back up, but I still feel that this surgery has been a positive thing because I am still 100 lbs lower then what I was when I went into surgery.
So where are all the others that used to be on here posting their updates. I would love to see some old familiar faces back posting again.
