I am coming up on my 1 year anniversary for my RNY , Aug 10, 2009 was my RNY date.
So far I'm down 221 lbs , plateauing at 191-194 lbs and feeling great.
How about everyone else?

Hi ladysings

Good luck with your surgery; and take things slowly. Let us know how things are going for you after your surgery. Getting back into the pool will be a great step for you, when you're ready. It's an excellent exercise for those with joint pain and difficulty moving.

We'll be keeping you in our thoughts!

Hi All! Just going to start my journey. I am a little nervous. I did join support group at Hospital and they meet 2x a month. My surgery is on Tues, May 29 next week. I am 254 lbs now. My highest was 280. I lost 50 lbs years ago with gym and water aerobics classes. For the last 5 years the weight has been creeping up due to major falls/accidents not getting to the gym/pool and eating for comfort. I am too heavy for my legs(just out of a cast on left ankle/plate, screws placed) and walking with a walker gingerly,lol. Doctors said I need bilateral knee replacements years ago but I feel I have had enough of metal and surgery to last me a life time. I pray this bariactric (Bypass) proceedure is my last!

Hi - I started a reply but it kind of disappeared - hope it doesn't repeat itself somehow later on.

I had a RNY 8 years ago, 93 pounds now. Good for you for taking the plunge to do something good for yourselves!
