6 month Surgeversary!!!

Hello all!

I haven't been posting recently as I have started a new job that keeps me very busy, but as I was reflecting today on my mother Val who is having her surgery today, I realized that today is my 6 month anniversary.

So many things have changed!! I am down 147 pounds, and am so happy!! I walk and excersise pain free, I can shop in any old store I want, I cant go anywhere without hearing...omg! I didn't recognize you lol

This was the best decision I have ever made, and to tell you the truth, I should have made it years ago.

So glad to hear from you again and that you are doing so well!  Val is very lucky to have you to help her through the process.  147 pounds is so amazing!  I am feeling down today and questioning everything, including surgery.  "Maybe if I just..." and "you should be able to lose it without surgery" etc. etc.   All this even though half a dozen doctors and specialists have recommended this to me for over a decade.  Your post is a reminder of what I have to look forward to and why I am enduring this super long process in the first place.  Thank you for posting and I hope you post again as soon as your schedule permits.

thanks that means a lot :) my mother just had her surgery yesterday, and everything went well, she should be out of the hospital tomorrow, I also found posts like this very encouraging, especially when I was in the self doubt mode

Congrats on getting a job.  And way to go on the 147 pounds.  I've been talking with your mom over facebook and here for a few weeks now.  I swear i seen you in No frills last week.  I'm from Elliot Lake also.  I'm in the waiting process still to have my surgery but the more i see updates like this the more i realise that this is the best decision for me.  I cant wait to say i've lost 100 + pounds and be able to exercise and be active without always complaining the my legs, feet, back etc.. hurt.
