I am not a typical person that has always struggled with their weight. It wasn't until I was out of high school and in college that I began to gain weight, then I found out I was pregnant with my first child. After I had my first child, I didn't lose the "baby fat" as most people call it.....my son was 9mths. old, and I found out I was pregnant with my second child. Needless to say I never lost the "baby fat" from either pregnancy. Once my kids were a little older, I have tried numerous times to lose weight but, every time I would lose, I would gain back even more weight! I am now the most I've ever weighed, 230, and I have turned to WLS as a tool, not a solution. I am willing to make the sacrifice that I need to make to get my life back....my kids are now 10 and 12....I want to be more active and involved with them!3

It has now been a little over 6 weeks since I've had WLS. The first 3-4 weeks were tough. I did not realize what a mental challenge this would be for me. The last couple of weeks have been easier and I'm adjusting to my new life style. I'm glad that I've had the surgery.

I am a little over 6 months post op and I have to say that the sleeve is the best thing that I have ever done for myself! It is still tough at times but so worth it! I have currently lost 67lbs. and I have 33 to lose until I hit my goal weight of 130! I'm excited about my progress andI know I will have continued success!
