My New Life!

I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy on January 2, 2013. My doctor told me if I stayed at 317 pounds that I would lose 20 precious years of my life over my average sized friends. That scared the bejesus out of me since I would miss growing old with my hubby, my daughters getting married and even grandchildren. I wasn't ABOUT to throw that away.

FAST FORWARD a year and I'm feeling healthy now! I have more energy to keep up with my two little ones and I'm no longer morbidly ...

FAST FORWARD a year and I'm feeling healthy now! I have more energy to keep up with my two little ones and I'm no longer morbidly OBESE...just slightly overweight! Approaching the world of maintenance and I'm terrified!

If you are on the fence about having weight loss surgery - please message me to hear my story. It has been life-changingly amazing and I am an open book. I will share the ups and downs with you. But please know that it may seem scary now but when you are on the other side - you will wonder why you were so afraid to take that step!

emoticon Just popping in on my friends to let them know that I am still around and to check on their well being. I hope all is well for you, my friend! Keep sparking and take care of yourself. Fall is already in the air here in Wyoming. I'm not ready... but, who am I to try to take on Mother Nature? Speaking of mother... you are doing fantastic! Bet your OBGYN is very happy. Won't be much longer now, keep up the great work. Talk with you more later. Dee emoticon
