One more gastric bypass update:

NEW PHOTO :)Well,I haven't given an update in My bariatric  gastric bypass journey I'm on in several months.It's been  10 months since My surgery.I'm trying not to weigh myself as much now.As of last week sometime I've lost about 107 lbs and it's still coming off.Many of you might recognize My profile pic. I had up for the whole time I've been blogging .I recently changed it to a more recent pic., and when I'm finished losing weight I'll change it again. It is now real easy after 10 months,a breeze to follow through with.It's true though and can bare repeating,the first few months are tough,but so worth it. Easy and beneficial if any of you are still wondering and want to know what it's like.Makes you feel ages younger,so healthy and light on your feet.
OLD PHOTO :)In bathing suit and cover-up.He loves Me no matter and has for 36 years.

It's  easier to babysit my little Loves.They too love Grammie no matter.He was sure set up for the whole day.It can be tons of fun teaching them to use their imagination,esp. 100lbs lighter.

May have posted some of these already,but gee I'm so forgetful lately.

Thank you all who have traded so many goodies and crafts with Me.I know I don't post My gifts right away,I'm not good at that and I'm very sorry. I'm also getting a little forgetful as I said,a whole different story.I love all you sweet bloggie friends out there and treasure each of you,no matter  Denise P.S. I hope someone tells Me if I'm repeating or redoing posts.Is it apart of being 60 years old or just maybe I need to go to the Doc.? EEKS!

As I said...you are beautiful inside and out. I talked about this today with my Pastor. It isn't easy for me to say yes too. I am praying about it though. My new doctor thinks I am an excellent candidate for the surgery....blessings dear friend

What a great thing you have done! I worked with a lady who had the surgery and she's done really well too. You look wonderful! Congratulations!!!

You really do look amazing, Denise! It must feel wonderful and so much easier now that you are so much lighter. Well done, I say, for going down the route that you did . It's good to be kept up to date with how you are doing. You should be very proud of yourself . As you say, hubby and your little grandson love you to bits anyway. !

Good morning BEAUTIFUL DENISE! Thank God that your health is in top form! Those who love us as we are, in no matter what physical or spiritual state are a gift. I am happy for you that you are satisfied with your results!

OUR FRANCE PARTY HAS STARTED! Are you still going to participate???? Anita

Good Evening Denise, Congratulations to you, how wonderful to have lost 100 lbs, it is a marvellous achievement.
I had to smile when you mentioned repeating yourself, you asked if it was something to do with being 60 years old. I am 61 years and I do thing like, putting the tea pot into the fridge.... not sure why, but it seems right at the time!
Have a lovely weekend.
Best wishes to you,

Hello i like all you show in this blog!!
This is magnific Tour !!

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
