I can hardly believe that it’s been a whole year since my surgery, and what a year it has been!! 2017 was the year that I put ‘me’ first – no more excuses. No more kidding myself that I could lose the weight if I just worked harder. I made the (difficult) decision to have the surgery, start a workout routine and focus on better health.
I started my journey weighing 235 lbs and now, I’m happy….no, I’m thrilled to say I have lost 70 lbs! I can’t remember the last time I stepped on a scale and it read 165 !! I feel amazing and what a treat to go shopping and no longer be restricted to the “big girl sizes”. I went from a size 20-22 to a size 12-14. I have more energy to do the things I like to do. I feel better inside, when I look at myself in the mirror.
I have absolutely no regrets on going ahead with the surgery, it has given me my life back. Now, I make healthy food choices and going to the gym is part of my daily routine. Since surgery, I’ve had 2 blood tests and my doctor says I’m doing great. Most importantly……I FEEL GREAT !!
Thanks for checking in with me……I really appreciated all your support and guidance, before and after surgery.
