Hi JoAnne and any other interested parties,
I can't believe it's been a year since surgery...wow...Here's an update...
I have lost 73 pounds and have gone from a size 24 to a 16*...my feet don't hurt; my sugar levels are normal; they went from 100 to 92* at my last check up. My mother, who winters in Arizona, says that she can't believe the change in my personality...she says that I am so much more relaxed and confident...today I ran to "beat" someone someplace and didn't get out of breath...a year ago I would have thought I was dieing! I am so pleased with the progress. I feel awesome and would do it all over again! I have attached a current picture of me...it's just from my phone but at least it's current...
