Almost 6 weeks RNY post-op! Down 32 pounds since surgery and 92 pounds since heaviest in 2012!
I barely remember surgery now and I do not contantly think about food. yay!
My first goal is coming up 100 pounds down in 8 pounds! Can't wait!!!!!!
Oops.... I suck.

Feel off the wagon. Can't stop eating. UGH! So mad at myself! IF I had a surgery date, I would be so much more motivated. : (

OTC doc says I have to lose 34 pounds before surgery... in just 2 weeks Ive lost 16 pounds so 18 more to go! No problem. I've never felt more motivated than ever! Now that I have an "end game", its easy for me to commit to my diet. I am following Atkins Induction phase (no more than 20 carbs a day) and once your body gets adjusted to it, its not bad!
Have 2 groups this week! Very excited to keep learning!

Finally decided that I need help and have chosen RNY at CMC Obesity Treatment Center in Manchester, NH. I have submitted all paperwork and PCP referral. I attended this Step 1 Info Session on 3/4/13 @ CMC. I am going to attend all support groups, they are once a month, next one being on 3/11.
I have no major complications (no diabetes, gout, etc) but very bad low back pain, depression and panic attacks. I'm hoping that once I have surgery, those will all fade away.
I recently googled "RNY complications" and now I am scared and not so excited. I had no idea how many things can go wrong Post-Op and that is very scary for me. I'm going to ask doc how common complications are and hopefully they will set my mind to ease.
