Thank you. Honestly, I stayed committed for the most part but I also had a few months where it was harder than before and I didn't follow the plan. I did stray for a bit and gained 3-4 pounds in the process.

I just tried to remember how bad my quality of life was before and it renewed my focus. Being able to keep up or be faster than my friends instead of being blocks behind them is crazy. Being able to shop in stores I never could before? Insane. Being (for the most part) happy with who I am and how I look? I never thought it would happen.

When I want to stray from plan I now make myself go on a walk and remind myself that before I couldn't even sit in a chair without getting out of breath.

I am determined to not let myself get back to that place.

You have to find the things you are getting healthy for and hold onto them.

Remind yourself of what you're working for.

I wanted to be able to participate in life instead of being on the sidelines all the time.

Now I'm very active and I have more friends than time to see them.

It's a surreal feeling and I'm not going to stop working until I reach my goal...then the hard part starts!

Good luck to you!




I just wanted to say how much I appreciate this post and your sharing that there has been a time that your journey was more difficult and that you've come through it. As someone starting this process with a BMI over 70, I have read your posts and been very inspired by you. I hope to be able to regain my mobility and be a much more active participant in life rather than being someone forced to sit on the side. Thank you so much for sharing.

Thank you! I did have a panniculectomy on June 5th. They removed 15 pounds of skin. I will have more surgeries once I hit goal. I had to get the panni done before I reached goal because it was affecting my quality of life.



I'm certainly going to need that. I have to lose about 130-140 pounds to reach my goal. You have done an awesome job. I'm worried about excess skin and about prospect of having it removed.

I hit a milestone today I am super excited about!
I have finally lost 300 pounds! I have been stalled the past few months and finally lost those last 6 pounds to hit this milestone! I am so thankful to be making this journey.
It still feels like a dream to me. It's crazy how I went from having to be on oxygen 24/7 and hardly being able to cross a room without getting out of breath to being able to walk for 6 miles and still be ready to go out and do other things!
I am loving life right now and wanted to share my excitement at hitting this milestone with you!

You look AMAZING! Congrats on getting to goal!

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!
