I am excited just to think of how far I've come since my procedure one year ago. When I started this journey, I weighted almost 340 pounds but on May 8, 2015, my life changed. I was diagnosed as being a border line diabetic due to my weight so I made the decision to get the sleeve. I feel amazing!
Celebrating the Journey
I am 1year and 3 months post op and down 124 pounds from my highest weight of 337 and feeling amazing. I have gone from wearing a Women's size 28 to a Missy's size 12/14 and even some size 10 depending on the style/cut. I just attended my first "Masquerade Celebrate the Journey" Ball in Atlanta, GA and it was awesome. I had the pleasure of meeting so many people who have had various types of weight loss surgery and they look great. I only have 38 pounds to lose to reach my goal weight. I'm still excited about this journey and motivated to keep pressing forward until I reach my goal. I thank God for blessing me to go through the surgery and have no complications. It is only a matter of time before I will be in maintenance mode.
