About Me

I have been over weight my WHOLE life even as a toddler. Did the weight loss rollercoster MANY times - would lose weight and then gain it back and then some. I have tried EVERY diet pill over the counter and prescription. Tried every "fad" diet and diet programs - all with no long term success. After much research and soul searching I had my GBS on 1/5/2011 - BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE!
Highest weight 240 - DOS weight 210 (lost 30 prior to surgery)
Jan:lost 20 lbs -
Feb:lost 11 lbs - March:lost 10 lbs - April:lost 15 lbs - May:lost 9 lbs - June:lost 10 lbs
July:lost 10 lbs - (7/2/11 - made goal - weighed in at 129.5 my goal was 130)
Aug:lost 5 lbs - Sept:lost 4.5 lbs - Oct:lost 0.5 lbs - Nov:lost 3 lbs - Dec:lost 1.5 lbs -
Jan 2012:lost .5
My lowest weight after surgery was 108 but now maintaining my weight at 116-120.   

4/20/2012: I changed the way I think about food - Do not live to eat but eat to live.  I have come to terms that to keep enjoying this "new" me I will I have to follow the rules and exercise for the rest of my life, this is just the way it has to be.
