Calling all October staplers please "check in"

Recommended Posts

I see that we have no recent posts.  I believe that we need to keep encouraging each other along this journey.   I hope to see people posting their progress here soon.  If you are struggling where else can you get support from people who would understand first hand?

I am an October 2011 gastric bypass patient and I am happy to say, I have zero complaints! Not a single regret. I am a happy, happy camper. I still take all my vitamins and supplements and just had my 18 month follow-up with my surgeon's office. All is well! My next floow-up is October and that will be my 2-year mark. It has flown by so fast. I also now speak at the new patient information sessions for my surgeon's group at Johns Hopkins and I am loving telling my story and helping new patients. I bounce between 180 and 184 lbs and that seems to be where I hover. I hit 185 once and locked myself down to get back under and it worked. I weight myself every morning to keep myself in check. I have never thrown up. I have never lost hair. I continue to use my new tummy yo help me out and when I feel full, I stop eating. This has been quite the journey but I am happy I did it and would do it all over again in a heart beat. 

 

How are you doing?

 Any others want to chime in out there?? :)

Jules74-Glad someone came out to answer.  I think it is key that we continue to support each other and I noticed our groups is very very quiet.

I know. Even some members who I used to text and keep up with have disappeared into oblivion. I always wonder how they are doing? Are things going well? Have they had troubles? I'd be curious to hear from others in our group too.
