It is unfortunate that the surgical lightweights group has been so inactive during your time of prep. I am a lightweight. I was diagnosed and the medicated for so many problems I may not even remember them all. My surgery was Sep 9, 2009 - Almost eight years ago. My surgeon's goal for me was 173 lbs and my personal goal was 163. I was a diabetic who required non insulin injectables, glucophage and another med that reduces absorption of glucose to keep my A1C below 8. I am now on metformin only and I have not been above 6 for years. My internist keeps saying "when you were a diabetic. I had a heart attack and triple by pass in January of 2001. My heart and circulatory system are still just fine. No chest pain and no blockages in my entire body. I had a dozen other diagnosis, but there is no use dwelling on them or even listing them because they are no longer a big deal with the exception of RLS which has continued to progress. I also have developed neuropathy which appears to be independent from diabetes. By the way, for the last five years my weight has floated between 159 and 168 depending on the season and my emotional state. ======= Without RNY I would be dead by now. there is no doubt in my mind at all. I have paid for my success in a minor way. If I eat too much I feel bloated and miserable. If I eat too many simple carbs to fast I feel sick for 30-40 minutes. These are my only two reminders that I was very close to being dead by now and instead I am alive, active and a part of my family. Dear Fat to Healthy, You will make it. Just listen to your body, get counseling if you start to fall apart and believe. You will be with us for many years. Congratulations on your decision to live a real life. Mel

Four Years and Still at Goal! - I think the title says it all. I am still alive and healthy. Without surgery I would probably be dead by now. Let's see HgA1C is 5.9 on only Glucophage. My cardiologist has my t...
