5-1/2 months post-op....lots to smile about....and there'll be more things to smile coming!

I am in my mid-30's and have decided it is time to change my life drastically. I am in the process of getting a date set for gastric bypass surgery and have already started the weight-loss journey losing 25 lbs between April and September.

I enjoy crocheting and reading but spend much of my summer involved with the local truck and tractor pulling association close to home.

Since joining I have had a surgery date set and look forward to starting my life anew.

I had my surgery on February 16th and all seems to be going well to date. Since starting the WLS journey in April 2009, I've lost about 70lbs. Today (Feb. 22) I posted some pics that I had a friend take the night before surgery and plan on posting updates to these photos every month or two.

Well I'm one year out from my RNY surgery. Remember to take pictures because there is a WOW factor you do not want to miss. Remember to apply everything you have learned and most important listen to your body and do not push it, otherwise your body will push back. One last thing, surgery is a contact sport.

You can do it, we are all on a journey not a race.
