Been a long time

So it's been a long time since I posted here. Wow! Lots of things have happened. On October 13, I met with a surgeon in Reno to discuss weight loss surgery. My initial weigh in was 482.2. Yikes! After talking to him, I decided to go ahead and do it. So, I spent six months getting ready for it. On January 9, I started my pre-op diet. I weighed in at 508 lbs. Yikes! So, I started the pre-op diet and started losing weight. I was able to get all my pre-op requirements completed, and my surgery was scheduled for April 9, 2012. Woo too!! I went in and had my surgery on April 9, at 1:00 pm. with Dr. Kent Sasse as my surgeon. The surgery took about an hour and all I can tell you is that it is the best decision I have ever made. So far, I have lost 130 lbs. I am walking on the treadmill every day and doing toning exercises. Here's some photos of the process: I am so happy so far with my progress. I am more mobile and I am feeling great. Now a lot of people would and have said that I took the easy way out. Let me tell everyone here that this is NOT the easy way. There is nothing easy about this process, but I will say that it is worth it.
