I had gastric bypass in 2005 & having a difficult time losing the last 20lbs. I recently had a bout with depression & gained an additional 15lbs, so now I'm looking to get back on track. It's now November 2019 and I've gained almost all of my weight back. I tried to get a revision and even with 5 drs saying its medically necessary & a hernia I was denied. Its hitting hard. 😥 March 2nd: 2nd attempt at a new start. My revision was done today (I'm writingthis on the10th). Some complications but nothing is 100%. Wish me luck 🥰

Personal Information:
Currently I am 44 years old. I have 2 "grown" children, a daughter Amanda 24 and a son Craig 22. I have a trainer named Leo, (hes a 24lb cat in need of an attitude adjustment). Works me like a dog ba da dum.
I have a few medical conditions. Epilespy which I have had since I was 12. Currently and in part due to the gastric bypass (which to end future conversations yes I would have again knowing all of the possibilities), Anemia and Osteopenia which most likely due to family history would have happened anyway.
I am extremely sarcastic and for the most part feel if you don't get it well thats on you.
I love to laugh, hard to heavy metal. I believe in live and let live, under my terms of course. LOL well this is an update. Enjoy the life you have!!!

Other Information:
Right now my favorite quote:

You can make yourself happy or miserable.......the effort is the same!

    Oh hi Lynna,
    I was kinda surprised to received a message from you as it has been 648 days ago. I thought you quit doing SP. Glad to hear you are doing ok. You mentioned you are finally approved - for what, hon?
    Well, as for me, a lot has happened since we last communicated. Long story short, hubby discovered he had bladder cancer in October 2018. They tried to removed tumors on 3 separate surgeries (Nov 27, Dec 27, 2018 & May 31, 2019) He had one 6 weeks BCG treatment done between Mid Feb 2019 - end Mar 2019) Cancer kept growing back and on Aug 21, 2019 doc removed his bladder. So, it was a life changing experience for us but thank God he is alive except he still has other issues. Oh June 14, 2019 he also had a wrist and elbow surgery. There's still one more surgery to do - Rotator Cuff and neck area. This was put in back burner as cancer was priority one.
    On the bright side, our youngest daughter, Fin has graduated May 2019 from High School and has now completed first semester at NIU. Also, she made it in the Dean's List!
    Oh my, I can't stop talking LOL
    Got to go for now! Take care & have another blessed day! ^^
    Love & Hugs
