30 years post op.
Thirty years ago I made the best decision of my life. At 298 lbs I had the RNY gastric bypass. Within one year I lost 160 lbs. For 15 years I successfully maintained at 140 lbs-a size 4. After a bout with cancer, menopause, depression, my weight slowly inched back to the 230s. Six months ago I made a promise to my self to use my tool properly. I have since lost 40 lbs with another 40 to get back to my goal wgt. I walk every day, eat 3 healthy meals no snacking. I am happier and healthier since putting myself first. Thirty years and my pouch is still working well.

What a great post about the power of re-committing yourself and seeing results. It's never easy but always worth it!
