Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass - Seeing Results Fast! - York, PA

Hello! I will be very honest! This procedure is...

I will be very honest! This procedure is no walk in the park and you really have to put all your might and will into the diets and different stages, but going from a 48 pant size in MEN to a 40 IN A MONTH... I was blown away! Waking up from surgery was hell due to all the gas, but overall I do not regret getting this procedure. If you think this a "quick-fix" this is not for you! It is a life style change that you have to make immediately once you consider having this procedure done. May 11th 2016 will be my second month post-op and I am already excited about my "monthly pic" :) I love comparing and seeing the difference going on with my body. It's just amazing and more amazing is the hard work I'm dedicating to it, it's completely paying off! So ladies and gents, if you are considering getting Gastric Bypass - GO FOR IT! You will be happier with yourself and you will look forward to your monthly achievements and goals. Remember to always do your research and everyone is not the same so results do vary!

Best of luck to you guys in your journey to weight loss! God Bless!

Unleashing My Inner Lioness ??????.

So I don't post personal things on here, just mostly about my weight loss, ( well really it is All about weight loss lol ). Guys... Gals... it's sad to say... my weight loss contributed to my relationship with my significant other failing due to him not being able to handle the NEW ME!

Guess what honey... if you couldn't handle me at my worst, you sure as h*ll can't handle me at MY BEST! I feel magnificent! So bye bye negativity! Welcome new Izzy ??

My Body. My Temple.

My face on the second picture describes my joy! And to think in the first picture I was "happy" with myself... but really was getting close to my heaviest weight yet. My health was becoming worse and my levels were crazy.
If you are considering this procedure I approve 1000%! I'm living proof!

Face To Face.

Need I say more?

Because I feel good and it's scarf weather!

Feeling like a million bucks!

I can cross my legs comfortably!

So this is something that I always had trouble with when I was bigger. I always wanted to be able to sit and cross my legs, (especially when you have nice shoes to show off lol). That never happens due to me always having big hips and thighs. I'm so happy! ????????????

Gaaahhhhhh! I am ECSTATIC! Guys, Gals... I GOT TO WEAR PUMPS FOR 3 STRAIGHT HOURS WITHOUT PAIN! And the beauty about it is I had bought these puppies for Christmas 2013... never got to wear them due to my ankles being so wide and also my feet. Now my shoe size has gone down to a whole half size! How cool is that? And can I stress the fact that I can cross my legs comfortable!? In heels!? I just want to hug the new me and never ever letting her go!
If you want this change, what are you waiting for!? Go for it! It's for YOU! Bring out the best YOU!
