August 1, 2014 was my 1 year anniversary having the gastric sleeve surgery. I lost 65lbs in the first 3 months.* I started out at 260lbs and am currently at 130lbs.* I have lost half of my body weight! The only thing I did not like about the surgery was being so thirsty afterwards. Besides that, I am so happy with my surgery, surgeon and results!
I have told everyone I know about the surgery and know a few people who decided to have the procedure done as well. It has changed my life for the better. I watch everything I put into my body and no longer rely on food for comfort. It has helped my husband as well, I make him eat properly and exercise with me and we are both in the best shapes of our lives at age 40. I am now comfortable in my own body and confident in who I am on the inside and out. Thank you!
