My gastric bypass surgery has been an absolute success! On my birthday on September 16, 2013, I tipped the scales at over 300 lbs. At my one year anniversary (my re-birthday), I'm at 151 lbs and got a clean bill of health from my bariatric surgeon... all labs were perfect! I was advised not to lose anymore than 20 lbs going forward. I know I will be healthy for life. The secret to my success? Following the post surgery rules exactly. They really work. I've added years to my life and reversed my diabetes. I've influenced other family members, including my husband, to lead healthier lifestyles. We eat right and exercise regularly. Every aspect of my life has been impacted in a positive way, from the physical benefits to the emotional happiness and well-being, to even better performance at work. I never knew life could be so enjoyable! Would I do it all again? ABSOLUTELY!!!

I've been using Spark since 2006. I finally decided that after many failed attempts to lose on my own that it is time to get help. My primary issue is getting past long-lasting plateaus. My objective is to lose the weight and keep it off forever. My tool of choice - Roux en Y Gastric Bypass. Surgery was on January 31, 2014.

I'm using Spark to track food and fitness, blog about my journey, and get and give support to other Spark users. I know I will succeed!
