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!

Ah ok. I hadn't seen the other posts. This Graduates Forum can be a little slow and I just wanted to make sure your posts were being seen by the most people.

Wow, that's amazing Jennifer! Thanks for sharing your experience. I have heard about some of the potential struggles along the way and it sounds like you've hit them head on and have seen really good progress. You're right to lean towards a healthier diet, I believe it can help a lot! Also exercise should be a must for everybody no matter if they have had surgery or not. Great job! -Luis www.tilecontractorswinnipeg.com www.dumpsterrentalwinnipeg.com
