It has been one year since my gastric sleeve surgery, and I feel AMAZING! I am the healthiest and happiest I have been in years. It has been a challenging year, but I wouldn’t have done anything any differently. My highest weight was 240 lbs, I am currently sitting at 155 lbs. I was a size 16-18 and I am now a size 6-10. I have competed in a 5km run in 28 minutes, something I never thought possible. I am no longer held back by my insecurities and have gained so much confidence in myself. Thank you so much for all of the support. And thank you to my Surgeon for helping me get my life under control.
