9-7-21 20 years post op

Sep 11, 2021

Wow 20 years post op!  So it has been awhile that I have been on obesity help. I am in awe how well have done. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I have had my ups and downs, but those are 99% all my fault because I forget I not super woman. When Im feeling great I tend to forget to take care of myself so I stay feeling great. I am prone to ulcers that like to bleed. Recently I ended up in the the hospital for 4 days do to a bleeding ulcer that I didn't know was happening. But again had I been taking my Prilosec or Protonix like I should I would have never been in that situation. So now on to good stuff, I am almost 50 yrs old, I was 29 when I had open RYN. I am so active now and doing things that I never thought I would be doing. Im very active in trail riding with my horses and doing ground exercises with them. From day one of surgery I never wanted to have the dreaded bat wings, so every morning for about 5-10 minutes with my little dumb bells I do my arm exercises. Gosh I think the day of surgery I was 325 pounds, now I am a 110 normally, lost a few pounds from this last ulcer but I will gain it back. But just had to give a update.
