I had stomach stapling done on August 16, 1986. I weighed 305 pounds.

This morning, my scale read 110 pounds.

It took me more than 10 years to get to a healthy weight -- most of that time I was stalled around 245. I had a successful pregnancy right after my WLS, but my weight loss came to a screeching halt.

I've been at a healthy weight for almost 11 years now.

I've had one major medical complication, and a few minor ones. However, I have learned to eat moderate amounts of food that I want, and I exercise every day. Working out is a joy for me!

I love living at a healthy weight and I love being and fabulous 57 year-old. Losing weight didn't remove me from having to fight the battles of life, but I must say it's far easier to fight those battles in a healthy body! And yes, I'd do it all over again.

In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
