Voluptua's Vignettes, Victories and Ventings

Hi, I'm Anna. I love ALL kinds of good music. I'm an amateur singer/songwriter, actor, bellydancer with WAY too much belly.

I've done it all. Weight Watchers, LA Weight Loss, Nutrisystem, etc. and like 99% of anyone who diets, I gained it all back, usually plus more. I've finally absorbed the fact that diets do not work and I've vowed never to diet again.

Hi, I'm Anna. I love ALL kinds of good music. I'm an amateur singer/songwriter, actor, bellydancer with WAY too much belly.

I've done it all. Weight Watchers, LA Weight Loss, Nutrisystem, etc. and like 99% of anyone who diets, I gained it all back, usually plus more. I've finally absorbed the fact that diets do not work and I've vowed never to diet again.

On September 17, 2008, I had Duodenal Switch weight loss surgery. WLS is the only cure for morbid obesity, so I decided to make the plunge. I'm thrilled at the new world that's opening up for me! I can't believe how effortlessly the weight is falling off, and I can still eat the foods I love! Seriously. I've lost 100 pounds eating cheeseburgers, Mexican food, and heavily marbled steaks.

I'm exercising regularly; water jogging 3 times a week, FitLinxx strength training 2 times a week, Qigong twice a week, and African dance once a week.

I have made a commitment to use the Food Tracker here and keep up with what I'm asking my body to process. It's been a real eye-opener.

Welcome to Gastric Bypass Sparklers! You’ll find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and we’ll all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!

Linda
