Health knowledge made personal

Karon

I once weighed 530 lbs. I lost a good amount of weight on my own and then had RNY gastric bypass surgery almost two years ago. I have lost a total of about 265 lbs and hope to lose another 30-40 at least. I'm not so much governed by the number on the scale as I am by how I feel and I feel GREAT!
