My Granddaughter (Ayla, age 27 months) and I went to church this morning. She was fussy, so we stayed in the foyer and she enjoyed walking around. After a while, she asked me to hold her and she fell asleep on my shoulder. As I stood holding her I realized she weighs exactly the same amount of weight I have lost over the past months following the bariatric program diet. Twenty-six pounds! WOW was she heavy!
I am amazed i was ever able to function at that weight, and i am so looking forward to having vsg and losing all the rest of the weight I am carrying like a huge backpack i can never put down! Thank God for this option to become healthier!
I have lost about 220 pounds, I was goofing around with my teenage son the other day that weighs like 145 and I lifted him off the ground and about fell out myself from the effort. I can't fathom how I ever survived carrying all that enormous amount of weight around 24/7. It is no wonder my joints were about shot a few years ago.
Had VSG on 9/28/15
Lost 161 lbs since surgery, LOST 221 lbs overall so far!!
What a great way to look at it! Makes it pretty real!
I say I lost a person- a big person.
