Topic: 13 years and counting

In June I hit my 13 year surgery anniversary and didnt get around to posting until now :-)

I am doing great... I have kept up with my vits/supps and still get annual bloodwork. Over the past year + I have really started to focus on my diet and exercise and took up biking. I ride 7 days a week, sometimes twice a day and mix in yoga and weights as well as moved to a vegetable heavy diet still making sure I get my protein. I am in the best shape of my life and feel amazing. I am down to 135lbs from the 145lbs I was for many years and have seen a lot of positive changes in my body since focusing diet and exercise.

I hope everybody is doing well on their journeys!

Topic: 12 years!

Good morning all! Today marks 12 years since my RNY surgery! I am happier and healthier than I have ever been. It has been a completely amazing experience and crazy when I look back at how far I've come over these 12 years. I am hoping this year to get a leg lift and that will complete my transformation. I am still conscious of what I eat, take my vitamins/supps EVERY day, get annual physicals, had a bone dentist at 10 years out and exercise at least a few times a week if not more. As of this morning I am at 143 pounds which is the lightest I have been since middle school. I moved to Arizona back in January and have been even more active because of all the amazing outdoor activities here. I hope everybody is doing well on their own journeys!

Oh Alice!!!

We loved staying at you grandfather's Lodge as a family on vacation when I was a child. My father enjoyed talking with your grandfather so much.

I would love to bring my children and grandchildren some day soon!

Is there anywhere to stay that is still similar to your grandfather's lakefront home with the huge screened sleeping porch?

Thanks so much!

Kathy
