Post surgery

Friday, July 22, 2016

My friends, I have been trying to lose weight alll my life. Let me tell you, having the gastric sleeve is the answer to my prayers. When I came back, I was at 358 pounds. I am very happy to say that since may 4th, I have lost a total of 46 pounds, 18 of those since surgery on July 6th. I feel SSSOOOOOOOOO MUCH BETTER! I have energy! I have less pain! I am starting to feel like a different person! I would DEFINITELY recommend this surgery to anybody who is continuing to struggle to lose weight. I am now looking forward to watching the weight continue to fall off and to do more exercise to tighten up my skin. Oh also, I am off all heart meds!

    Be one of the winners by continuing to be one of the losers (weight that is). Continue to take care of yourself.

    So great your having success with the surgery. I am at odds on this as two of my friends had it done and they lost about 20% of what they needed to before starting to gain again. Feel mostly though it was on them, not the surgery that failed.

    Making that decision took a lot of courage. And the journey continues. Every day will be a day of strength and courage. Take care of yourself and be proud of every step you take to lead a happy and healthy life.
