Catalina - 4 Year Update*
Hello from Costa Rica Joanne !!
I'm on a vacation and in the best shape of my life!!! Ever!! At 57 years old. I never EVER ever believed that I would be this healthy at this age and in a sense reverse my aging and all the damage that I did to my body from being obese for over 30 years .
I'm so pleased and happy with the way I look and feel!! I'm so glad I had the opportunity to do the RNY through Be-lite and the doctors in Mexico. My entire experience was flawless ...Well except for my new digestive system ....It definitely took me a few years to get used to my new system but I think I've got a handle on it as this is my four year celebration of being healthy.
I wonder if you have a before picture of me (?) , I certainly don't know where any are and I'd love to share the comparison. At my highest I was 250 pounds. I'm currently maintaining at 118lbs since surgery recovery & got down to 110lbs was my lowest weight.
Although I was obese for many years, I was a fairly healthy obese person, never on any medication's so I was lucky there.
I am now in Pilates teacher training and doing Pilates consistently for the last five years as well as swimming , walking and riding my bike has really helped to reshape my body. I will send you a video of me last week here at the thermal spa in Costa Rica. I thank you so much for your continued support and encouragement as well as any guidance I might need .
If you would like to use my story as one of your many success stories I am free to share more information and photos.
