Hi Teresa, yep it was 4 years ago this morning. Now 71 years of age enjoying very good health. My weight has ranged from 224 to 230 lbs the last couple of years, came in @ 229lbs this morning, down from original high of 293lbs when I committed to the surgery. Actually got down to 219lbs but have not seen that weight for some time. My eating habits totally changed. Still yet to eat even one desert. No cookies, pies, muffins, chocolates or chocolate bars, ice cream, or anything with sugar content. Meal size still very small. Still wearing 38 inch waist slacks. Been able to wear same size for 4 years now, never did that before, always had to buy bigger and bigger.
As I reported a while back, I had a freak skiing accident while night skiing with one of my grandsons. My injuries were significant, fractured vertebrae and ribs and punctured lung. I was back walking a week later, but only got to pain free walking after about 3 months. Accident occurred on my 71st birthday in November. I considered giving up the sport but decided it was a freaky accident mostly due to night conditions so I was back skiing and curling by February. Glad I didn’t give it up.
Candy and I celebrate our 50th anniversary on the 6th, so we a leaving for a golf holiday tomorrow in California, returning to same area where we celebrated our 25th. So all’s well, so pleased I had the surgery. A real life changer.
