My Weight Loss Story
Week 1 | Week 20 | Week 40 | Week 82
I was a ‘yo-yo’ dieter for more than 25 years. I was divorced, raising 3 children alone and battling depression. At age 54 and at 297lbs, I had pretty much given up on losing weight. My self confidence was in the gutter. I had no energy, lived in pain, was taking medication for high blood pressure and diabetes and living daily in fear of stroke or heart attack. I had 3 friends die in 3 week period. All overweight with health issues and in their mid to late 50’s. I knew I’d be next. Weight loss surgery was my last hope.
I’m already down 122 pounds and still going! I am eating right, exercising daily, am more confident, fit and stronger than I have ever been! Gastric bypass has helped me transform not only on the outside, but on the inside as well. I am living pain free, worry-free and off all medications, am enjoying my 6 beautiful grandchildren and have a new found hobby of motorcycling. I’ve remarried and my husband and I are enjoying exploring the back-country roads together on our pair of Harley Davidsons! Life is good now! I’m grateful for the second chance and am now living life to the fullest! It feels great to be happy and healthy again!
