My Journey

I'm a classic yo-yo dieter. I've been up and down the scales since I was 14 years old; starting at size 5 and slowly increasing to a 32 over the years. I am a professional dieter and know all about losing weight; it's KEEPING IT OFF that I can't seem to master! After five years of research and prayer, I made the decision to have Vertical Sleeve surgery.

My surgery date was April 9, 2009 and as of August 6, 2011, I have lost 190 pounds! I'm happy to say I'm still ...

My health was deteriorating so I was in pretty bad shape by the time I had surgery. I'm thrilled to report I am out of the wheelchair, off all medication, riding horses and bicycles and having a great life, in general. WLS is a radical step, not to be taken lightly, but sometimes radical measures are required. I do not regret the decision!

Thank you for supporting my blog. I am happy to report that Food and I are becoming friends, and I have returned to the kitchen. I am enjoying re-discovering foods in my healthy diet and am already able to prepare other meals for my roommate and friends. Hope you're preparing for a great weekend! Thanks again!

Your friend - "Sprink"

Linda you couldn't be more correct, the weight loss does make us a little crazy but that's a "very good thing." (I'm so gay i still quote Martha Stewart!

You couldn't pay me enough to get on that rig but I bet you had a blast and probably played what I like to refer to as "SphincterBingo" wondering if that gas was really gas or sumpin else..lmao... I can't believe I just told you that but I play it all the time - VIVA LA KIRKLAND BRAND MIRALAX ! Oy I get sore with just the thought.

Anyway, thank you for your kind words on my blog. I so love doing them but they really take a long time with all the pictures and sizing so I think I am going to try a webcam blog soon where I can wing it so to speak.

My best to you and yours for a fantastic weekend. God Bless - "Sprink"
