Thanks everyone. Funny, considering how major a role the RNY has been in my life, but it's actually a very small part of it now. Most days I don't even think about it. The biggest thing for me in recent years has been to get on top of all my vitamin and nutritional deficiencies.

"I'll try" is a preemptive excuse for failure.

emoticon to the team, Kristeen. Sounds like you are doing a lot to improve your health. Good luck!

I believe in taking a positive attitude toward the world. My hope still is to leave the world a little bit better than when I got here.

Hi everyone. My name is Kristeen and I had a proximal RNY on April 15, 2002. I weighed 379 pre-op and have been as low as 262. My dr. told me from day 1 that the surgery would help me lose about 100# and the other 100# would be up to me (diet and exercise) so I still consider my surgery a success!
After I lost the 100+# my self-esteem changed for the better and I decided that since my weight had made me miserable for so long, that I was going to stop focusing on it. I hovered around 260-270 for the next few years.
In March of this year I decided to take a Fitness Walking clinic and I have kept the momentum going since then. In May my friend invited me to play Game On (a diet/healthy lifestyle game that lasts 4 weeks) and I have been watching what I eat since then. My pre-Game On weight was 291; my highest weight since surgery.
I have lost 21# so far and since reviewing my pre-op journal last night; my first mini-goal is 261 which I am hoping to hit by September 26!

"I'll try" is a preemptive excuse for failure.
