I'm a big boned girl but in high school I had no tummy...around a size 12/14. Then the kids came, and medicine that made me gain weight and made it even harder to lose it...oh and can't forget my love for food! I've been over weight for the past 20 yrs with my heaviest being 315lbs back in 2001. I've lost weight many times using different weight loss program...my favorite was weight watchers but after some time it just wasn't working for me anymore. I did drop from 315 to 270lbs at one point then went back to about 310lbs...then lost from 310lbs to 245lbs but then went back to almost 300lbs.
Fed up with yo-yo diets and because I have yet to get any diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. (but I was border line), I decided to venture down this bariatric surgery route. It was a long process with all of the doctors I had to see to get insurance approval for the surgery. I started at a BMI 45.7...and after 8 months I finally had the RNY surgery. I did have to do 16 days of a liquid diet before surgery to shrink the liver and it was very hard to do. I lost 10lbs before the liquid diet then another 20lbs with the liquid diet so I got a nice jump start to this weight loss journey.
I hope to lose 90lbs in total by Halloween or Thanksgiving. See you all on the flip side!!
