It has now been 4 years since my rebirth!  What an amazing journey it has been.  And I still say that I would have the surgery again and again and again.  I have gone from a large un athletic woman to a small very athletic runner!  Endurance running is my gig!  Good luck to all of you who are trying to decide if surgery is for you, and to those who are struggling with post op decision making!  The surgery is only a tool.  I lost all my weight and it is hard work EVERY day to keep it off.  Protein shakes are still my primary source of nutrition and I expect that to be the case for the rest of my life.  My surgein told me, Jennifer...I can fix your body, but not your brain.  I didn't know what he meant when he said that to me over 4 years ago.  I do now.  We can GET skinny just by having hte surgery, but we cannot STAY skinny without getting healthy too!
