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

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

Hello!
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!

Excited In Being Featured On A Weight Loss Article!

Hello guys!

So about a two weeks ago I had a phone interview with a top-notch NYC writer. The story is now live!
It will be very helpful for people that are considering Gastric Bypass or any weight loss surgery procedure. Please take your time to read it through!

Blessed day to all!

120LBS Down! 9 Months Post-Op.

My health is rocking! My surgeon is very content with my results! And guess what... this little lady is too! I cannot believe this is me! Why did I wait this long?! From a 48 in MEN to a 32, possible 30 in the next to weeks... I can't begin to tell you how happy I am! Go me!

End Of Year Happiness!

#Speechless. Please read: I remember vividly waking up March 11th and being so nervous, questioning if I should go through the surgery... Dozens of fears about the unknown surfaced. I shook it off and told myself that I could do it! I carried two babies full term, so this was nothing! Now that I am 9 months out, I feel AMAZING! While I input my weigh-in for this week, I was blown away to read that I'm OVERWEIGHT and not OBESE! My BMI is almost at my target goal, I am 25LBS AWAY from my goal weight... I can just cry right now! I'm becoming a normal, healthy person and that is so valuable to me. The time I have invested in this for me has definitely been worth it! This is a good Christmas present to me from me! 124.7LBS down and I am NOT STOPPING!

Hola Mundo ????

When it's less than 48HRS to ring in the New Years and I decided that 2017 is definitely going to be mine and you cut all your hair off ???????? yes I did that! I'm in LOVE ?? Feel so SEXY! Since I'll be toning up in the next month and working out intensively I opted for a Pixie haircut ????????????.

Happy New Year 2017 Beautiful People!

This New Year I rang it with people that matter the most and most importantly my momma bear! I felt incredibly confident and I wore my arms out even though I have a lot of sagging skin ????. I hope this new year brings everyone they desire and may God bless us all ?????????

Almost 10 Months Post-Op

#Raw reality. So so soooooo proud of me! 8 days shy for my 10th Month Surgeryversary ????. From a size 20 to a 12, 40DD to 34C, from a 3X to a Large (fitting big a bit), from 289.7LBS starting weight to 258LBS on my surgery date... 160LBS today. I have tons of excess skin! Since I'm almost at my goal weight I am waiting to hit that 140LBS to start my workout routine ???? so far I got to do 20 crunches to start on my belly and got to do 10 push-ups... I'll be honest... that's the most I EVER go to do it without struggling or hurting. This guys, is amazing to me because I am pushing myself to do what I have to do. I was smiling the whole time while I was doing my crunches ????????.

Close To My Goal!

Almost 10 months out and I'm sooooo close to my goal of 140LBS! I'm on cloud 9!

Happy 10th Month Surgeryversary to Moi!

10 months ago I embarked in a journey to better my health and myself. I have pushed my limits to the farthest I could, done things and felt things that I have never done before. This year is my year of YES! Yes to anything that I haven't done before. Yes to adventures. Yes to a whole new career! The second picture on the right depicts my loose skin. I have it everywhere people! But I don't let that stop me. I know what I have to do and will do it. I am 12.2LBS for my 140LBS goal. I can't seem to grasp that I'm doing this in less than a year! So please follow your guidelines, stick to what works for you! Do this for YOU! I am so ecstatic lol so so soooooo HAPPY! #WLS | #GastricBypass | #WLSCommunity | #RNYLife | #10MonthsPostOp | #MoreThan100LBSDown | #BariatricBabes | #GoMe | #ImDoingIt
