12 Year Surgiversury
Today marks 12 years after RNY. I'm so glad I had it. I was on 3 BP meds, cholesterol meds, had high tryglcerides and acid reflex. Within a month I was off all meds.
I lost 70 lbs. My surgeon thought I should lose another 20 but I was so happy after losing 70 lbs. I didn't work at losing the other 20. I have had some regain but took it off.
As seasons changed, I used to worry my clothes wouldn't fit, but I don't have that concern now. I'm still wearing a few things I've had since 2009.
I continue to eat healthy but I do stray occasionally. Sugar is not my friend and for that I am grateful. Eating anything sweetened with sugar spells trouble.
RNY: July 8, 2008

Congratulations on 12 years out. I just celebrated 16 and have kept my weight off also. I lost 95 pounds and it's the best thing I could have done for myself.
