Tomorrow is my 7-year surgiversary.  Started at 370+.  Got down to 202 after an e-coli infection post Tummy tuck.  Three years later bounced up to 250.  Now, using the tools from the surgery back down to 214 and loving life.


Don't mess up and go back to old eating habits.  But...if you do, use your tools to fight the weight gain.  The tool is always there to use unless you totally abuse it.

I am so very happy with where I am with my health and my weight.  If you screw up, you can fix it!

Good for you!

We can never hear too many times about the personal accountability aspect of this journey or hear too frequently from people who have slipped up a bit but then gotten serious about taking control again!

Thank you for sharing! It is really life long! The further out the easier to lose track and lose sight of the work we must continue.
Hugs from OH family!
