I was over 400# could not bend over without swooning, could not take a step without a walker. Needed help on steps. I was ready to lay down and die, I was literally moments from being in a wheelchair.
I had been researching it for years and finally decided its now or die. So I did it. And today not quite 5 years laters I am down 285#.
I am still a food-a-holic. I must keep a tight reign on myself not to splurge. I don't want to give up my size 8 pants or my size 6 blouses for anything. Nothing tastes as good as being skinny feels.
