maintenance and me....

Oct 30, 2009

Well,,here I am 4 years and one month out from my RNY. I reached alow weight of 193 for about two days,,right now I am 217. I wore a size 12-14, now Im in a 16-18. The good thing is,,I have maintained this size for about a year now. I watch pretty close cause I dont want to lose any more. I still feel great, Went to my doc for a complete checkup,,,everything was perfect, he just said to eat more fruits and veggies. And of course, more exercise. I have a realproblem with that. Im basically lazy. Iknow Iwould still be in my smaller sizes if I would exercise, but I just cant seem to make myself do it!
I have a few friends who have gained a lot of weight back, and that scares me,,so I try to keep it under control. I still get complements and thats good, but most folks are used to seeing me now so all the hulabaloo is over, and that is dangerous too.
All in all,,I would still do it again in a heartbeat. I feel great, I can do about anything,,and Ill be 63 in a few months. I count it a great blessing.
