I started this journey in 2008 weighing in at 271. I decided to have lap band surgery. In 2011 my band had slipped and I had it repaired. It slipped again in May of 2012 and I had it removed. On May 27 I restarted this journed and I am down a total of 57 pounds from 2008. I am following a low carb diet. On top of it all I am Type 2 diabetic and I want to get my sugars back in control.

As of today 5/1/14 I am down 81 pounds! Yay me! I am now scheduled for surgery on June 6 to remove the excess skin from my weight loss. So excited and thrilled!

On Friday June 6 I had a panniculectomy to get rid of my loose skin from losing 83 pounds! They removed 3 pounds of skin from my abdomen and this morning I go to see if I can have the drains (2) removed. I'm very excited!
