10 Year Surgiversary!!!

I've been thinking about my LW's a lot this week! Today is my 10 year Surgiversary of for my Gastric Bypass. I give my Lightweights so much credit for my success!! I'm still in my "perfect" range. 118-120. Just had my check up at the Drs. last week and I was right in the middle. Still wearing the same dress pants I've worn for 7 years. Drying Cleaning keeps them nice and neat. I get my blood work done religiously and it's a good thing I do. I've got a few low numbers that I have to work on.

My menus haven't changed much. I'm still a routine eater. I do much better when I don't have to plan meals or take to much time thinking about food. I still drink my Matrix Mint Cookie Protein shakes, eat numerous small meals (more like snacks) throughout the day like meat/cheese, raw carrots, nuts, jerky, and beef sticks. Every work day for lunch I eat a Jimmy Dean Frozen Breakfast that has bacon, scrambled eggs, cheese, and a few potatoes. Dinner is a small version of what ever my hubby eats.

Posting on this site and being afraid of letting every one down is what kept me going on some days. It's all worth it in the end. Don't give in just face every day as it comes.

Every once in awhile I check in and read a few posts but I don't see many familiar faces which makes me sad. If any of the "oldies" check in send me a message and let me know how you are doing!

Way to go!

The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.
