My Journey: Going on My First Date Since Losing Nearly 300lbs

Jan 31, 2024

Embarking on a new chapter in our lives can be both exhilarating and nerve-wracking. After shedding almost 300lbs and undergoing weight loss surgery, I find myself entering the world of dating once again. Naturally, the question of whether I should disclose my remarkable weight loss journey and past struggles with my date arises. In this blog, I will explore the pros and cons of revealing my previous weight and surgery, ultimately helping me decide whether honesty is the best policy.


1. Celebrate Personal Triumphs:

One of the main reasons to consider sharing your weight loss journey is to commemorate your incredible achievement. Losing nearly 300lbs is a remarkable feat that showcases your determination and ability to overcome obstacles. Opening up about this transformative experience can help your date understand the depth of your personal growth and resilience.


2. Honesty and Authenticity:

Building a strong foundation in any relationship is crucial, and that includes honesty. Revealing your weight loss journey demonstrates your willingness to be vulnerable and authentic from the beginning. Trust can develop more organically when both parties feel they are being open about their past experiences.


3. Avoiding Judgment and Shallow Relationships:

By discussing your weight loss journey early on, you can filter out individuals who may not be supportive or compassionate towards your past struggles. It's better to know sooner rather than later whether your date can appreciate and embrace your true self. This will help avoid investing time and emotions in relationships that are shallow or judgmental.


4. Creating Empathy and Understanding:

Sharing your weight loss story can often lead to empathy and understanding. Many people may not have firsthand experience with the challenges of losing a significant amount of weight. By explaining your journey, you provide your date with insights into your physical and emotional transformation, fostering compassion and a deeper connection.


5. Taking It Slow and Protecting Your Mental Health:

While honesty is important, it's equally vital to prioritize your mental well-being. If you feel uncomfortable revealing your weight loss surgery or previous weight during the initial stages of dating, it's perfectly acceptable to take your time. Focus on establishing a bond based on shared interests and compatibility before deciding when to disclose personal information.



Deciding when and how to share your weight loss journey is ultimately a personal choice. It's essential to consider your comfort level and the potential impact on your relationship. By being open and honest about your past, you give your date a chance to appreciate the strength of your character and the incredible milestones you've achieved. Remember, the right person will respect and admire your journey, supporting you every step of the way.


Embracing the Journey: Triumph in Transformation

Weight loss often involves sharing before and after pictures to showcase the journey's progress. Unfortunately, when I look back at my own transformation, the visual evidence of my 200-pound weight loss is missing. Being unable to share pictures of my highest weight of 586 pounds is a reminder of the hurdles I've overcome and the personal victories achieved on this life-changing journey. I just wish I have keep some before pictures.



My Journey from Over 600lbs: Weight Loss Surgery Saved My Life

Aug 14, 2023

Welcome to my blog, where I share my extraordinary journey from weighing over 600 pounds to a healthier and happier life. If it weren't for weight loss surgery, I believe I would have faced a grim reality, potentially becoming the new world's heaviest woman. Today, I want to tell you how weight loss surgery not only transformed my body but also gave me a second chance at life.


1. The Breaking Point:

At my highest weight, I found myself facing numerous physical, emotional, and mental challenges. Everyday activities became nearly impossible, and I felt trapped in a body that limited my quality of life. It was my breaking point, the moment I realized that something drastic had to be done if I wanted to survive.


2. Seeking Help and Making the Decision:

Desperate for change, I sought medical advice and met with a team of professionals, including a caring surgeon, nutritionist, and mental health expert. Together, we explored various weight loss options and ultimately decided that surgery was the most effective solution for me. I'll share the factors I considered, the research I conducted, and the personal journey that led me to make this life-changing decision.


3. Surgery and Recovery:

Undergoing weight loss surgery was a daunting prospect, but I knew it was my best chance at a healthier future. I'll take you through the surgery itself, the risks involved, and the emotional rollercoaster of the recovery process. From the initial pain and adjustments to a new lifestyle, I'll give you an honest account of what it's like to go through weight loss surgery.


4. The Physical Transformation:

As the weeks and months passed, I started experiencing the visible changes that weight loss surgery brought about. From shedding excess pounds to improving my mobility, I'll share the triumphs and challenges I encountered during this transformative period. The physical changes were undeniable, but the emotional and mental shifts were just as significant.


5. Lifestyle and Self-Care:

Although weight loss surgery jumpstarted my journey, it wasn't a magic solution. I had to completely reevaluate my relationship with food, develop healthier habits, and commit to a sustainable lifestyle. I'll discuss the importance of proper nutrition, exercise, and ongoing support that played a crucial role in maintaining my weight loss and overall well-being.


6. The Emotional Rollercoaster:

Weight loss surgery is not only a physical transformation but also an emotional and mental one. I'll open up about the highs and lows, the insecurities, the self-discovery, and the newfound self-confidence that emerged during this deeply personal journey. Embracing self-love and adopting a positive mindset have been vital components of my ongoing success.



My weight loss surgery journey allowed me to overcome immense obstacles, reclaim my health, and rewrite my future. With this blog, I aim to not only share my own experiences but also inspire and support others who may be facing similar challenges. Together, we can break the barriers, embrace change, and forge a path towards a healthier, happier life.

What I don't miss weigh over 600 lbs

Jul 01, 2023

Embarking on a journey towards a healthier lifestyle is a transformative experience, both physically and emotionally. As someone who once weighed over 600 lbs, I have made significant changes in my life that have brought about remarkable improvements. In this blog post, I aim to shed light on the aspects of my previous life that I am grateful to leave behind. Let's dive into what I don't miss about weighing over 600 lbs:


1. Limited Mobility:

One of the most challenging aspects of my life at that weight was limited mobility. Simple tasks like walking short distances or climbing stairs were extremely arduous, and I would often feel breathless and fatigued. Now, as I have shed the excess weight, I don't miss the feeling of being held back by my own body. I can walk without struggling and embrace activities that were once impossible.


2. Health Complications:

Carrying excess weight not only takes a toll on the body but also leads to various health complications. Issues like joint pain, high blood pressure, and diabetes affected my quality of life. The constant worry of developing further health problems was overwhelming. With my weight loss journey, I have experienced a significant reduction in these complications, allowing me to focus on improving my overall well-being.


3. Emotional Struggle:

Weight can profoundly impact a person's emotional state. Feelings of low self-esteem, shame, and social anxiety overwhelmed me, making it difficult to engage fully in life's joys. Today, I don't miss that constant internal struggle and the weight of negative self-image. Shedding the pounds has boosted my confidence and provided me with a renewed sense of self-worth.


4. Food as a Coping Mechanism:

For many who struggle with weight, food often becomes a source of comfort or emotional escape. However, using food as a coping mechanism ultimately exacerbates the issue. Breaking this cycle has been liberating. I now find healthier ways to navigate through emotions, such as exercise, therapy, or engaging in hobbies that bring me joy.


5. Limited Wardrobe Choices:

Being limited to a specific range of clothing sizes can feel demoralizing and contribute to the negative body image. The frustration of not finding clothes that fit or shopping in specialty stores can be disheartening. Since shedding the excess weight, I have enjoyed discovering a variety of clothing options, allowing me to express myself and feel comfortable in my own skin.



Embarking on a weight loss journey has been transformative, bringing about numerous positive changes in my life. Leaving behind limited mobility, health complications, emotional struggles, relying on food as a coping mechanism, and limited wardrobe choices has opened up new opportunities and a new lease on life. While the process can be challenging, the rewards are tremendous - both physically and mentally.


If you're currently facing similar challenges, remember that change is possible. Seek support, set achievable goals, and embrace the journey towards a healthier version of yourself. You deserve to live a fulfilling and empowered life!


What to do

Jun 30, 2023

I wanted to reach out because I have been feeling torn about what to do with my old clothes that I used to wear when I weighed over 600 pounds. Despite knowing that I will never need them again, I find myself wanting to hold onto them, just in case.


Letting go of these clothes symbolizes more than just shedding the physical weight. It represents the incredible journey I have been on to achieve a healthier lifestyle and overcome the challenges I faced. It shows the progress I've made and the determination that pushed me to reach my goals.


However, I understand that holding onto these clothes may serve as a reminder of where I once was, and it's important to reflect on the progress I have made and not dwell on the past. It's essential to focus on the present and the future ahead of me.


Ultimately, I believe it is time for me to say goodbye to these old clothes. Donating them to a worthy cause or someone in need would give them a new purpose and provide a sense of closure for me. Alternatively, I could also consider repurposing them into something meaningful, such as turning them into a quilt or artwork that symbolizes my journey.


I would appreciate your advice and input on this matter. Have you come across a similar situation in your own life? What did you decide to do with clothing that no longer fit? I value your perspective and would be grateful for any guidance you can offer.


Thank you for taking the time to read this

My Journey with Obesity: My Duodenal Switch Surgery Experience


Many people may not know this about me, but I have struggled with obesity for most of my life. At my heaviest, I weighed over 650 pounds and knew that I needed to take action to improve my health and wellbeing. This led me to consider weight loss surgery, and after consulting with my doctor and doing extensive research, I decided to undergo a duodenal switch surgery.


I underwent a four-hour surgery that felt like getting run over by a Mack truck. The recovery process was tough, but I had an incredible team of nurses who helped me manage my pain and keep track of my vitals. I spent two to three days in the hospital before being sent home to continue my recovery.


In the first 24 hours after my surgery, I wasn't allowed to eat or drink anything, which was difficult but manageable because I was still dealing with some pain. However, the hardest part of the recovery process has been the need to start walking around to aid in the healing process.


Despite the challenges I have faced, I am thrilled to report that I have lost close to 300 pounds since my surgery. The only downside is the excess skin that remains, but I feel happier and healthier than I have in years.


If you are struggling with obesity like I was, know that you are not alone and that there are options available to help. Weight loss surgery may not be the right choice for everyone, but it has been a game-changer for me. I encourage you to speak with your doctor about your options and take the steps necessary to improve your health and wellbeing.
