2 Year Anniversary of My WLS

March 18th 2010 I had Weight Loss Surgery it has been one of the best choices that I have ever made for myself.  I have lost over 230 lbs in 2 years.  I still have some to loose but it has been quite a journey. The procedure I had is call the Duodenal Switch.   If you are interested you can go to, or you can leave me a message and I will get back to you.   Weight Loss Surgery isn't for everyone but it was my last hope for I was dying a slow but painful death.  I couldn't walk very far, I was pretty much home bound.  Now I am in charge of the Wednesday night dinner that our church provides before our bible study.  That means going shopping, cooking and serving this meal.  I also have started doing Zumba 4 times a week.  If you would have told me that I would enjoy exercising I would have laugh in your face, but I really am having fun.  I don't move the same way as the younger ones and ever some that are my age but the main thing is that I am moving and loving every minute of ir.   I started out wearing a size 5 to 6 X.   Today I wear a 12/14 top and a size 16 paints.  Even if I don't loose anymore I am so much better off .  Here are a some pictures to show a little of the progress.    Thanks for looking.
