I got to my goal. Joined TOPS last summer & have lost about 50 lb so far. Was able to have hip replacement on 4/22/19. But it has put my recovery back to a screeching halt. Am having a lot of pain. Can barely move at times, even with a walker. Have more weight to lose but just concentrating on managing pain for now.
Ideally between 50 and 60 lbs. But maintaining a healthy lifestyle and having a hip replacement is my ultimate goal.
I'm currently 160lbs lighter than I was when I had bariatric surgery on 01/26/09. It's my 10th surgery anniversary on Saturday - in hindsight the best decision I've ever made although there were some times when my demons made me regret it.
I did put weight back on because my eating disorder was never addressed at the time but that has been dealt with over the last 2 years with counselling and I've now lost 62lbs since last summer and will be able to maintain whatever loss I achieve in the future.
