He laughed like I was silly, and I said...
I hope you're having a Wonderful Weekend!
Not for one moment have I regretted my decision. I know that I could not have lost all of this weight without the surgery. Believe me, I tried. I have had no complications at all. I am the poster child for gastric bypass! No problems whatsoever, and the weight dropped right off.
At one year post-op, I can eat most anything I want, just in small portions. I still eat very healthy, but I do indulge on 'treats' on special occasions. For me, it's all about moderation, and this surgery enabled me to eat properly.
Here's a pic of me very shortly after the surgery:
and here's the most recent pic of me, a crappy cell phone pic taken on Valentine's Day, just before J and I went out for dinner:
If you have any questions regarding this surgery, I'd be happy to answer them for you. I am so thankful that this surgery exists, and that I made the decision to take control of my health, so that I will hopefully have many more years to spend with my family!
*Wordful Wednesday (courtesy of Seven Clown Circus) is for those of us that like to showcase a photo(s) but that just can't seem keep our mouths shut about it(them). If you'd like to play along, post a photo on your blog, and let the words roll.
Hope your Valentine's Day is full of love!
Our girl cat, Lilly, HATED him on sight. She was also furious with all of us for allowing that little vermin into our home. She literally would not look at us or allow us to pet her! But she's come around, accepting our adoration now and tolerating Charley. I think they'll end up friends.
We're so glad we have Charley in our family. Now Ladybug wants a kitten, too! What's one more four-legged friend, at this point? (seven, if you're counting. haha!) And Spiderman wants an iguana. I love all different animals, so I think it's great! I always wanted a big enough house to have many different animals and now we have it. Who knows what animals lurk in our future!
