Three Years Later
Jun 25, 2010I've struggled with weight all my life. By the time I was 24 I weighed 302 lbs and my health was suffering.
I had my Gastric Bypass surgery in March 2007.
My lowest weight was 185 lbs about one year out from surgery - I was very happy with this weight.
To be in the "normal" weight category I would need to be 174 lbs...but I figure with excess skin I was about there.
I had a baby in April 2009. I gained some weight with the pregnancy that I have not taken off - yet.
Right now I am around 210-215.
My first real goal is to get under 200 lbs. If I could get under that dreaded 200 lbs mark I'd be a happy and healthy girl.
My dream/ultimate girl is to be back at that 185 lb mark.
I live in Wichita, KS but had my surgery on the Army base in Fort Carson, CO (Evans Army Community Hospital).
