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.

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.
