5 Year Update With Pics!

Recommended Posts

I haven't been here in so long! I'm over 5 years post op. I lost about 175 lbs within the first 2 years after surgery and I've maintained well. It hasn't always been easy but it's definitely been worth it! I am forever thankful for my wls!

The first couple of years, I walked 5 days a week, I kept track of my carbs and protein on My Fitness Pal, and I followed my surgeons directions to a T. The last few years I've found my new "normal". I can eat wherever and whatever I want in moderation. Thankfully, I still dump if I have too many carbs or sweets, so that definitely keeps me on my toes! I still feel hungry more often than most people, and I still like cheeseburgers and cake, but my biggest fear is regaining weight. Unfortunately, I'm not one of those lucky ones that eats whatever they want and stays skinny, so I always try to stay conscious of the fact that I'll never be able to fully relax. But I'll take this life over being morbidly overweight, any day.

Anyone can do it. It may be harder for some, than others. It may take longer for some, but everyone can do it.
