Its been a very long time since I have been on spark-people. I started out here some years ago and left. But, I had lost 123 pounds and was doing so well. And I had 5 surgeries from the time I dropped that weight. I had to have a pacemaker device put in my bladder to make it work properly. I had 3 surgeries from that. The two initial and then I got an infection from one of the surgeries and had to have another one to take the pacemaker out, until the infection went away. Then I had my tummy tuck last year and the initial surgery, had to have a minor surgery from that because I was not draining all the fluids. Through all of this I had gained 52 pounds back due, to not being able to work out and being on so many medications. I'm back to get your encouragements and support. I have been doing weight watchers through my medical insurance and I'm doing very well.
Everyone can do this weight loss thing, but it helps so much to have someone root you through your journey.
