I Did It!
Jul 25, 2010
After a little over 2 years I have done it...I have reached my goal weight that I had set before wls. I am now 199lbs! It's been the hardest thing I have ever done, but I would not change it for anything and I'd do it all again. My life has changed so much in the 2 years since my surgery. I have grown as a person, I am able to do so much more now, I have gained confidence in my personal life as well as professional life. I'm now an RN and I have to say the way I feel about myself now has helped me achieve this goal as well as many more. If you are reading this and are thinking about surgery or if you have had surgery already, don't lose heart...it takes alot of work and devotion, but you too can do it. Thank you everyone for your support. My goals now are to lose about 20 more lbs and have my loose skin removed...I will keep y'all posted!
Still going down...

Here I am, at the end of this year and I feel amazing! I officially started my journey on January 17th of this year when I filled out the application for surgery. Wow how my life has changed. I am now 88lbs smaller than I was on that day, and I hope to be even more when the year anniversary is here. My size 44 pants are falling off of me, some 2X shirts are baggy on me...I just cannot believe it! So I walked by a mirror the other day and out of the corner of my eye I saw me...not 355lb me...I say 267lb me. When I look in the mirror I don't see much of a difference, but for a brief moment I did, then I turned and looked and that "actual" smaller image of me was gone. The same thing happened to me with a picture, my shoulders weren't HUGE...lol...they were beautiful shoulders! HAHA
I will keep everyone up to date...thank you all for your support! ;)
It's Been Awhile!
