This has seriously been the best thing I have ever done! I am officially 6 months post-op and have only 10 more lbs to go! I started at 296 lbs at my heaviest and now am down to 185lbs! So excited! I don't hide from pictures anymore!! [emoji7]IMG_1594.thumb.JPG.dc8d466a54809437b4caadbf0408a6c9.JPG


Omg girl you look amazing!! You are built so much like I am and close starting weight! I started at 298 and currently 281 having surgery in 8 days!! Inspiration for sure!! I’m 5’5 and my doctor gave me a goal of no less than 175 because of how I carry my weight I guess!! You look soooooo good!

You are going to do great! Seriously this was the best decision I have ever made! I am just over 1 year post op and have maintained my weight at 170 with ease, which is actually 5lbs past my goal. I enjoy life so much more now between being more active, feeling better and having so much fun with daughters. My favorite part is now I am in all of the pictures with my kids and friends instead of hiding behind the camera!

I try to eat mainly Proteins but don't stick to any strict diet plan exactly. But i definitely eat small portions! I stay away from breads, tortillas, carbs that will fill me up fast. Also I stay away from sugary stuff as it usually makes me not feel good. I work out at the gym a couple days a week doing walking and core strength exercises and also ride 2 horses a day so I stay super active!

My tip is to mix things up! Don't get stuck with the same diet and exercise plan day in and day out! Whenever I hit plateaus it really helped me to change up my routine a bit to jump start the weight loss again!

Recently my daughter went into the ICU and has been at Children's hospital for 3 months now [emoji22] I have learned that even after surgery I am still very much a stress eater. I hit a major plateau and actually started gaining! I nipped that in the butt by starting on this amazing nutrition supplement called Thrive! It is not meant to be a quick fix for weight loss by any means but to improve overall health by filling any nutritional gaps and it has been a life changer! It's given me more energy and motivation to work out, I don't have as many cravings and has helped me handle my stress and I feel genuinely happier! If anyone wants more info, email me at stephanie7626@hotmail.com!

Thank you everyone for the sweet comments! It's so nice to feel this good about myself!



You look terrific! Congratulations!

I'm sorry your daughter is unwell its understandable you'd stress eat. Weldone for having the power to stay on track.

How tall are you ? I'm confused as I'm 192lbs and look so fat . you look nice and slim

I am 5’5. Numbers can be so frustrating.. everyone is so different. I now weigh 170 and have friends who weigh 20lbs less but we share clothes. Try not to be too focused on a certain number and just aim for what you feel confident with!

Wow your not even that tall. I'm even more confused ha. You look amazing. And your right it's hard not to focus on numbers. My goal is 135lbs if I still look fat then I'll be devastated.

How's your little one doing ?
