Biggest hurdle to overcome in managing after WLS: Drinking water has been hard. Maintaining my energy level after going back to work. I also had a complication and have another surgery two days after my first one. I was in the hospital for a week and then I had a feeding tube and a drain for three weeks.

Anything else you would like to share with us: So far, I'm still happy that I got the surgery. My scars are healing up and my clothes are getting a lot looser. I am determined to make this work.
