Six Month Surgiversary Already!

On April 13 of this year, Dr. Greenbaum did my DS and what a difference that has made! Since that day, I've lost 80 pounds!

This is me on the day I consulted with Dr. G. Then I weighed 291. I lost 7 lbs pre-op.

Here is me, taken this morning:

This is me at my highest weight of 318.

I can't even wear those clothes anymore. They're long gone. I've shrunk into clothes I wore years and years and years ago. Almost time for totally new ones, right?

Another view. Then:


My DH was switched in November 2008. He's lost almost 200 lbs.

We no longer need meds for diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Our diabetes is in remission. I need a new sleep study to have my CPAP pressure lowered.

I have so much more energy! I was able to go on a 45 minute hike with my 5 year old grandson!

I don't get all out of breath if I climb stairs.

I'm not a hermit anymore.

I eat everything I enjoy, just in smaller quantities.

I feel good about myself again.

This surgery saved my life!
