I lost 202 lbs without weight loss surgery. However, I gained 62 lbs back. As of May 1, 2014, I have lost all 62 of those stuborn pounds plus a few more. Sept. 2014, I had gastric bypass surgery. I need to get down to 200 lbs so I can have knee surgery or face my fears of not being able to walk @ all. Therefore, spending the rest of my life bedridden. I lost 218 lbs prior to surgery. Since surgery, I have lost 99.6 lbs. Grand total lost is 317.4 lbs. I am now standing and walking better. The excruciating pain that I suffered with for years has decreased tremendously.

Ain't no stopping us now. We are on the move.

Michelle,

I've been thinking about you a lot lately, I just can't seem to get on like I used to or get back on the train. I know I'll be there I just have a lot on my plate right now.
I just saw your beautiful picture and wanted to congratulate you on your wonderful steps. I didn't recognize your picture and I'm so happy for your!!


I hope that things are continuing to go well for you! Keep up the good work!
