    My family lives in Texas and i live in Maryland. Back in xmas 2017 i told them i was going to go through WLS. I had to explain what it was about, but i guess they thought.."she wont do it".. Mom,Dad, brother were scared , sister in law, husband and few others very supportive.
    I just came to Texas yesterday for xmas and at 5 months post op my fam are blown away.
    I showed them my xmas pic from 2017at 298lbs and they are shocked with the difference. I am currently at 224 lbs and I tell them im just getting started and i feel great.
    Now about food..lol yes mom is cooking away..meal after meal but i am focused and i only serve my small portions and very selective on what i can eat, I talk more than i eat when before i was the quiet one eating while every one was talking and prob reaching out for a second plate.
    Merry Christmas everyone lets stay focused. We can do this!

    Dr. McCluney, St. Elizabeths in Boston, is where he performs his surgeries, but he has offices in Fall River and Brockton where he sees patients.

    Syaniya reacted to nurse247 in Question about Recovery House for Dr. Cardenas/Beauty Enhance   
    Not really as it included my whole package with a week stay at the recovery house with around the clock care from nurses. I stayed one night in the hospital. All fees for the surgeon and anesthesiologist, pain pump, meds, food, etc... what I got for my package would easily be 20 k in the states. I wasn’t looking for a provider who was a cheaper alternative, I was focused on quality of care and best outcomes. I have seen other women go to Mexico and pay less. I’ve also seen horrendous botched surgeries. I had such a wonderful experience and it was worth every penny.

    Officially six months post surgery, down 126 lbs and feeling like a million bucks...44lbs away from my goal! And I can no longer shop at Lane Bryant...which is sad because I’ve been shopping there for 20 years. I get anxiety going into “regular” stores. But it’s a good problem to have! I flew Southwest this weekend and fit so comfortably in the seats. No more spending big bucks to fly first class!

    Syaniya reacted to Myaiku_Kuraitani in Finally Reached My Goal Weight   
    Finally got the last stubborn pound off and made it to my goal weight of 130 lbs. 🙂 I've lost all 143 lbs of my excess weight. Never thought that I could do that. Quite an accomplishment.
    Went from 273 lbs in 2015 to 130 yesterday. I'm my ideal weight. Now I'm like, "To maintain or not to maintain at this weight?"
    Just debating on if I should add a 10 lb gap just in case of regain. Thinking maybe, but I dunno. Finally got here after a week of being stalled out. I don't have a before picture... At least not a full body one, because I hated my body back then so full body pictures were as existent as mythical creatures. Sorry, lol even though I came off as being really confident to people who met me back then, I wasn't. I'm also trying lighter colored clothes because they're not within my comfort zone. I always thought light clothes made me look bigger.
    I always wanted to wear clothes like the ones in this picture when I was in my teens and early twenties. I couldn't til now. I'm 28 going on 29 and decided to have my fun with different styles of clothing.
    Size- 4, Small in sweats. Small in shirts. depends on how it's cut or made.
    Bra Size- 34C
    Surgery Date- April 26th, 2017
