Dr. Robert Shin preformed my gastric bypass surgery in Sept of 2003. I was 385 pounds at my heaviest weight. The first photo is about 15 months after my surgery and I was about 121 pounds and feeling a bit puny. Notice I was a little pale and my eyes were a bit hollowed in.I was still adjusting to the loss and trying to find a happy balance. and the second photo is Dr Shin and I almost 7 years later at the ASMBS conference in Las Vegas. Dr.Shin see’s me every year at the conference and he told me this year I looked great, he was so pleased that I had found a happy set point and was healthy. I weighed in around 150-155 in the second photo, I think anyhow. I really haven’t weighed in for too long.
Since that photo in June my life has drastically changed. This week I will step up to the scale for a weigh in and up to the plate for a back on track session. It’s time to face my reality… Maybe I should make a reality blog LOL.
