Hello everyone just wanted to share my weight loss story with everyone. I was 345 pounds and my liver was not in good shape. I was so sick of being over weight my body was producing a large amount of insulin and the drs. Couldn't get it under control so it's caused me to gain 100 pounds in 1 year. I started checking into weight loss surgery but never thought I'd have the chance to have it done. I was thankful for my insurance approving my weight loss surgery. I have a 6 month process I had to do before I could have my surgery. I went from 345 to 236 in those 6 months. After surgery was not as bad as I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong those first 3 weeks I thought to myself many times "what the heck did I do to myself" but so thankful for the surgery. I am now 9 months out from being sleeved and I am down to 221 pounds in those 9 months. I have lost 124 pounds since I started all this.it was work every pound. I would have surgery again in a heart beat. It saved myself. It made me feel my own age again ( 24 years old). The weight loss surgery saved me in many ways. My weight loss has slowed down some. Yes I had time where I got off track and ate bad and didn't work out. But I pushed myself to get back on track. My goal weight is 180 and I'm determined to meet that goal. Hope my story helps anyone who don't think the surgery it worth it..because it is!!!
