I'm So Proud

I'm so proud of Kristy, Jean, Tammie and Nan! 

They all finished the St. Patricks Day 5k Race in Bay City yesterday -- they all did amazingly well too!   Our WLS support group has planned a series of races to do together this year and this was the first on the schedule for us.  I couldn't walk yesterday because I hurt my back and didn't want to aggrevate it, but I was there to cheer them on and snap some photos of them crossing the finish line.

If you are a new WLS patient, look to these ladies for inspiration.  Kristy had RNY  4 years ago and just had a tummy tuck this pat winter.  Jean is almost 2 years post-op from her RNY and RAN this race - doing intervals of run/walk.  Tammie has the Sleeve less than a year ago and Nan just celebrated her 1 year anniversary of her RNY surgery.  They've gone from morbidly obese and unhealthy before WLS -- to a group of athletes who are fit, healthy and enthusiastic about exercise.  They are all amazing and such an inspiration to me.

Kristy, Jean, Tammie, Nan

Their finish times:

Kristy - 50:38
Jean -  39:09
Tammie - 55:56 (her first race!)
Nan - 43:15 (her first race!)
