Well I had my surgery on March 31 of this year, 9 months ago. I weighed my heaviest at 280 on March 21 the day I started my clear liquid diet. Today I weigh 197. I participated in my first weight loss challenge and feel like I did very well for myself. I have had many NSVs since my surgery and can't wait to see what the new year will hold for me. My greatest NSV is the fact that I know I control what happens to me in my life and health.
In 2012 My passport will be used for more than just a cruise. I will be traveling to Rome, Prague, and Istanbul.
