It’s My ReBirthday!

Ralph Parlett may have said it best when he wrote, “Real birthdays are not annual affairs. Real birthdays are the days when we have a new birth.”

Today, July 27th, marks an anniversary for me – its been one year since my RNY gastric bypass surgery. Many others who’ve had this procedure refer to the day of surgery as a “rebirthday” and considering how life-changing that day was for me, I think that’s fitting. I owe a great deal to all of you who’ve been so supportive and complimentary about my progress over the past months – having my own little cheerleading squad sure made a big difference!!

I’ve gotten a bit lax about posting progress pics, so here’s a “before & after” style update…
