I had WLS on February 4th, 2004.  I am 6 years post-op now.  I lost a total of 288 lbs in 14 months.  At one point I was losing 1.5 lb per day....much too fast!  I lost so much so fast, I shot WAY past my goal weight, and actually had to GAIN weight!  I was able to do that without issue and now have maintained my goal for the last 4 years!

People ask if it was worth it.  I just show them pictures of my two grandsons and tell them, "I am sure THESE boys will think it was worth it!"  I would do it again in a second.  I would recommend  it to anybody who has struggled with weight for years without success.  

I am at a place in my life that I thought I would never be again.  Each day is a blessing from God, and I treat it just like that.
