It's now been over 2 years since surgery --today is July 4, 2008. I've made it to Onderland (where you weigh under 200 pounds) and I've also succeeded in losing over 150 pounds on my RNY journey. Simple routine exercise, eating right, taking good vitamins, paying attention to lab results to see if you need additional vitamins, and attending support group meeting on a regular basis--these are the needed ingredients for my weight loss, and probably yours.

I find that attending support group meetings an essential element for this surgery. I made good progress after surgery, attending meetings once a month. Then I "got lazy", and stopped going. In 5-6 weeks, I regained 22 pounds. That was my wake up call, and I begain attending meetings again. Eating properly, taking your supplements (I take calcium and the GBG Multi Formula Liquid Vitamin), routinely exercising, and attending group support meetings to be the proper "recipe" for success with surgery. I've lost that 22 pounds, and am down to 210 pounds now, the same weight I was when I got married in 1967, some 40 years ago. DAVE
