I said I'd share pictures once I lost 100 pds... So here we are 104.5 pds down. I am so tall and big that 100 pds doesn't look like an astronomical difference on me compared to most, but I am proud. I am only half way to my goal and have another 120 pds to lose, so I am ready for the second half of the journey.
It got to the point where even going up a flight of stairs was hard, I literally felt my body failing me. I'm embarrassed I got so big. I have been so lucky that I haven't had health issues due to my weight, but I knew if I didn't do anything now, it'd catch up with me, especially after losing an aunt in her 50s to heart failure and obesity. I was unhappy. Unhappy with my job, body, life, self. So I changed everything, changed jobs, and started doing things that make me happy, including opting for weight loss surgery.
People think it's the easy way out, but it's not. I still have to make choices everyday to eat the right thing or I will gain weight. I have to fight my food addiction everyday, and keep my mind and hands busy. I'm working on it, and feel the best I have in a few years. I've lost 15 points off of my BMI, lost 44 inches, and I've gone from a size 22 (the biggest I've ever been) to a size 16. I'm just sticking with it.
EDIT: For those who are asking, I started my weight loss in November 2018 and had surgery in January 2019. I'm a quicker loser because I have a high starting weight. I've been losing 3.5-6 pds a week on average. @laurieforpresident#100poundsdown#wei#weightlosssformation #weightloss #rny#rny#rnygastricbypassery #rnygastricbypass #gastricbypass#wls#wlscommunity#wlsjourney#wlsbeforeandafter#bodypositive#bodytransformation#weightlossgoal#newme#weightlossinspiration#health#healthylifestyle#wei#weightlosssurgeryney #weightlosssurgery #weightlosssurgerycommunity
