I have followed the lifestyle from the You On A Diet book by Drs. Oz and Roizen for the past five years. My health greatly improved following this approach for example I eliminated high blood pressure and pre-diabetes. However, my weight loss was very difficult and limited. In October 2011, I decided that I needed more tools to lose weight and began to explore the possibility of Lap Band or Roux en Y (gastric bypass ) surgery.

I have followed the lifestyle from the You On A Diet book by Drs. Oz and Roizen for the past five years. My health greatly improved following this approach for example I eliminated high blood pressure and pre-diabetes. However, my weight loss was very difficult and limited. In October 2011, I decided that I needed more tools to lose weight and began to explore the possibility of Lap Band or Roux en Y (gastric bypass ) surgery.

I had gastric bypass on July 11, 2012. It was the right decision for me. I continue all my healthy habits from You On A Diet and workout daily. I am losing weight slowly, not as fast as some people lose with the surgery, but I am very satisfied with my progress.

Based on an article by Becky Hand the weight for a woman of average height 5'3"- I'm 5'3", based on the different BMI ranges is as follows:
Overweight BMI of 25-30 = 141-169 pounds I plan to leave this category by 12/31/2013.
Grade 1 Obesity BMI of 30-35 =169-197 pounds. Plan to leave this category by 8/22/2013.
Grade 2 & 3 Obesity BMI of more than 35 = 197+ pounds. Plan to leave this category by 3/1/2013.

My Goals:
I'm focusing on a daily workout. This includes an aerobic and core workout daily and strength training three to four times a week.

I'm continuing my focus on eating whole, natural foods..

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. Ralph Waldo Emerson


My Program:
Tracking my food intake, exercising daily and staying accountable on SparkPeople!

Personal Information:
I'm from Wisconsin. I'm married and have two adult daughters.

Other Information:
I spend time with my dogs - a black Labrador and a black lab/border collie mix. I get in lots of my added exercise time at the dog parks. I'm also an avid gardener.

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"
-Lysa TerKeurst

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
