I started my journey of weigh in's and appointments to get the gastric sleeve May 2018. I lost 30 pounds on my own by July 2018. I refused to use diet pills. i started out at 339.8lbs March 2018. by October 2018 I was 247lbs. I live in Panama City, Florida. Hurricane Michael ripped through my town as a category 5. I was displaced until August 2019 when I purchased my new house. I was on a roll until this Hurricane. I was unable to weigh in the last two months of my process (October and November) as there was no power or water for 4 weeks after the hurricane.And most buildings were destroyed. I have since gained a little bit of the weight back while trying to maintain for so many months while going through the healing process of this horrible natural disaster. One week ago I started the process again. In an attempt for them to let me pick up where I left off in the process seeing as it was not my fault that I could not weigh in for two months. I'm going to a metabolic center in Tallahassee and I am super excited to continue on in my weight loss journey using this tool to help me continue to loose more weight. If you have any advice for me prior to surgery or after I would greatly appreciate it.
