Plastic Surgery Soon! Gastric Bypass Patient..Lost 160

Started off weighing 292 Pounds. I was very small...

Started off weighing 292 Pounds. I was very small coming up and when I turned 18 I had my first child and that's when the weight crept up on me, my second child I went from 142 to 198 then my third child in 2007 I went from 230 to 278 pounds!! Also each pregnancy my kids weighed between 8 and 11 pounds!!!! I had no time for me, I was depressed and tried every diet known to mankind. I was diagnose with diabetes in 2008 and I felt that the breaking point was right there!!!

I decided to have the Gastric Bypass surgery, Medicare approved my wishes Dec of 2010, Surgery was set for Feb 11th 2011 and was a big SUCCESS!!!

Hi ladies, sorry I haven't kept you updated. I had my surgery Aug 17, 2012. I weighed 250 at the time of surgery, today I'm 204. It wasen't easy and I cried often, but at the end of the day I'm glad I did it. I see my waist line again! Yayy! I feel sexy again after 2 years. The hardest part is still cooking for my husband and children, but I can't eat what they're eating. I was up walking 2 hours after surgery and it helped with the gas. I struggle with the whole 60 grams of protein, so I'm back on my shakes...it looks like I'll definitely need a tummy tuck next year, and breast lift. I still got my booty, so far lol, but I may need a fat tranfer to smooth it out. Good luck ladies on your up and coming surgeries. No Regrets:=)
