My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)

Three Years

Today is my 3 year anniversary of my RNY!     Just 3 years ago at this time, I was recovering from the most dramatic surgery and most live changing event of my life.   3 years ago, I weighed 312 lbs.    I couldn't go up one flight of stairs without feeling like the wind was knocked out of me.  I couldn't cross my legs.   I couldn't fit in an airplane seat, ride on a roller coaster, fit comfortably in a booth, and patio furniture was out of the question. 
A lot has changed in 3 years.  
Thank you all for being a very important part of my journey to becoming who I am today.  It's been 3 years of self discovery that will keep continuing.

xoxo!

3 years... WOW! I celebrate you for keeping up your lifestyle for 3 years already. So many post-ops don't make it and gain their weight back. I know you are still not quite exactly where you want to be and trying to lose just a few more pounds, but keep remembering how far you've come - not only in the weight you have lost but the amount of time you have kept it off. That is the biggest accomplishment of all. That's the way to change your life and make sure it stays that way :) I look up to you and I hope I am doing as well as you when I am 3 years out!
