finally at my goal

on 6/15/20 3:59 pm

i have not posted in a long time but after much hard work i am finally at my goal weight and i am 21 months post op RNY. i started out at 345 and i am now down to 165 which means i have lost 180 lbs. i am 6 foot 5 inches tall. i weighed 165 when i graduated from high school back in 1976 and this is what i wanted to get back to. back in january i had a panulectomy and 5 lbs was taken off my stomach. i have gone from a size 32 to a size 14. i have maybe gained 5-7 lbs in the past 21 months but it has come off immediately. yes i am in a wheelchair so i don't get alot of exercise, i just try and watch what i eat. i have an awesome support system which does help. my weight loss surgeon Dr. Carlyle Dunshee is the most amazing guy ever! i could never have done it without him. yea there are times that i do still struggle but having the RNY was the best decision of my life, in fact it saved my life. i show people the before and after pictures of me and i don't look like the same person.
