One year - 100 pounds
Tuesday, June 22, 2021
Today I am 100 pounds lost since my surgery. Nearly 1 year ago, on June 24th 2020. I made the decision to have gastric sleeve surgery. I had already lost 117 pounds on my own in 2016, but was beginning to regain. I needed a tool to help me get healthier. After watching a very good friend have a similar surgery (gastric bypass) and doing incredibly well with it, I was inspired to go for it. IT WAS THE 2ND BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE! (first was when I said yes when James asked me to marry him!
) Do not be afraid to take control of your life and your health. And don't EVER let anyone tell you that surgery is the easy way out! (This is not easy!) I am at a total of 183 pounds from my highest weight. I still have more to go, but my life is immeasurably better for having done this!
