Oct 07, 2009I can't believe I am where I am. It's been almost 16 months since my surgery and I am currently down 96 lbs. I really never truly believed I would get here. I remember thinking to myself, if this surgery gets me under 200 lbs. I will consider it a success. Now I am at 160 and my goal of 150 seems like it's just around the corner. For anyone who is contemplating having surgery, I just want to let you know that my life was good before but now I feel like I am truly living the life I was meant to. My self confidence is amazing. I never thought I would feel so good about myself. My husband and I are closer than we've ever been and my kids have an active mom that participates with them instead of watching from the sidelines. I am so thankful and so truly blessed. Good luck to everyone on their journeys!
