Take a look at me now........
Saturday I celebrated my 3rd year post WLS. I come to these boards everyday to read inspiring stories and gain a wealth of information. For that I thank you and keep up the good work. We are all in this together. It has been an amazing journey. I have managed to lose 160lbs and maintain that weight loss give or take a few pounds during that time of the month (TMI). I weigh now anywhere between 158-163 which is a good weight for me on my 5'5" frame. I eat anything I want with caution. I'm single and on those days I really want something, I go for it and deal with the gas repercussions by myself. I have learned how to control what I can and can not eat when I travel or be around friends. Don't get me wrong, it took a while to get there and I manage. In the beginning stages of my journey I marveled at all the success stories wondering will that ever be me and 3 years later it is me. I still look in the mirror and don't recognize the reflection. I went from a size 28 to a size 6-8-10 (depending on material). I can't remember in my life wearing a single digit size or anything small. I still get mad at myself for even buying a medium sometimes because I know it won't fit. (Good problem to have). To those considering this surgery, you have made the right decision. Keep connected to these boards to get questions answered and encouragement. I think that is a key to my success. There is always somebody going through the same thing as me and I look to these boards to help me find the answers. To all my unsung heros THANK YOU!!!!!! I posted pictures on my profile and will attempt to do it here. Take a look at me now...........
Wow, looking good!! Congrats!! :-D
