Recommended Posts

Hiii. I'm Amanda. 23 years old. Was sleeved on October 21, 2013. (SW 304lbs) Today almost 6 months later (CW 203lbs) Total lost -101lbs. Goal weight #1 is 170 Main goal weight is 145/155 (I am 5'4) Here are some pics :) Before (10/2013) & After (04/2014) Then Now Sept 2013 Today 4/14/14

Ahh, just would like to share a little more of my journey !:

The past six months have transcended my highest hopes.

This surgery was, by far, the greatest decision Ive ever pursued.

I started out as a miserable, girl hidden within a body that served as a prison.

And after shedding over 100lbs in under 6 months, after not being able to walk on a treadmill for 20 minutes to now being able to RUN ... FAST for 45mins - 1 hour.

After squeezing into size 20 jeans to Now having my size 12 jeans starting to fall off of me.

I am finally free. My body is , for the first time EVER, matches the mental image i have had of myself. One day I was walking towards a shop and the reflection in the glass startled me. I was wondering why there was a pretty, thin looking, woman coming towards me ?

It was me. I had not recognized myself.

By the end of this months I will be a proud member of ONEDERLAND!! (Only THREE pounds away!!) .

My sister had her VSG done one month before me. My two cousins had gotten there VSGs done in December & one in February. Therefore I have had the best support system i could have ever imagined.

One girl who was my friend completely ignored my calls & such immediately after I was released from hosp after surgery . She was always morbidly obese & I think she was just upset that she wasnt able to be approved for her surgery (she was opting for sleeve)

Months go by and have not heard from her . Then recently she adds me on twitter and tumblr writing all these things like 'I am so glad I didnt get the surgery like u taking the easy way out , u are a weak freak haha' . Mind you this girl is 5'0 and over 300lbs. I laughed even though it got under my skin. Certainly this surgery is no easy way out.

Well yeah

Hi everyone! I was sleeved march 24th 3 weeks out and I can't believe the results already. It's amazing when you see it in picture form because physically I don't really feel much different.

Starting weight:236

Current weight:202

Future goal:140-150
