1 year 7 months - 297 pounds gone



Recommended Posts

Hello,

My name is Brittani. I'm 25 years old and I"ve lost 297 pounds. Yes, you read that correctly. 297 pounds in 1 year and 7 months! I am happier than I have ever been.

Some major changes have happened in the last ~2 years. All for the better. Some happier than others, some not. I'm in the middle of a divorce. BUT, and some people may critisize me for it but I'm choosing to sharemy happiness, I am in a WONDERFUL relationship with my boyfriend. He is everything I have ever wanted and needed, and continues to amaze and surprise me with everything I've been missing in my life. I've been with him since October, and my ex-husband and I have been separated for over a year... It was time for me to allow myself to be happy.

ANYWAYS, I've lost a lot of weight in the last while. Downsides, I have a lot of loose skin, but I'm comfortable. I'm loved just the way I am and I love myself. UPSIDES! I DON'T WEIGH 500 pounds!!!

My daughter Zoe is growing and is almost two. I had my surgery when she was 3 months old. It was the hardest decision of my life to leave her. I flew to Mexicali Mexico and had surgery under Dr. Alberto Aceves. It was the most wonderful experience of my life and the best experience I've had in a hospital to date. And I've been in the hospital quite a few times.

So far the only hard part has been knowing my limits. Sometimes I push myself to eat more when I know I shouldn't, and I pay for it by praying to the porcelein gods, lol.

ProTip: Don't eat and drink at the same time, unless it is a TEENSY TINY sip! You can/will vomit. No beating around the bush here. lol

I have a few goals for the coming years. I want to have some cosmetic surgery done. My arms and my breasts are my biggest problems. Baggy saggy is all I can say... I want my legs and tummy done, but those and the ( oYo ) Boobies aren't getting done till I'm done having babies. Because I do plan to have more. My arms, those will be done by this year. I DEMAND IT! lol kidding kidding, But no, I want to do them by the end of next year at the latest. Just have to save up the money!

Alright my lovelies. I have to go to bed. But I am uploading two photos. My before and after at 200 picture, and then a picture I took last week at the Renaissance Festival. Prety sure I've changed a lot. :)

Love,

Bri
