Wendy's Window

Hi, I'm Wendy, and I had Weight Loss Surgery (Rou-en-Y gastric bypass) on 11/26/07. My husband Don had the same surgery on 02/20/08. I lost 247 pounds, and have started gaining some weight back. The WLS is a tool that helped me lose 100 of the pounds - the rest I've done on my own.

Motto (01/05/11):

"Live in The Now.

You have a great story, thanks for sharing it. I saw your response to Dean Anderson's article about food addiction, and decided to drop by! You and your hubby are doing an amazing job of maintaining the new bodies you created.
