  1. Under 200!!!

    I'm FINALLY under the 200 pound mark...its only 1 pound from 200 which i'll gain after drinking a bottle of water lol, but seeing my weight under 200 for the first time in years really brought a smile to my face. The weight has slowed down but i'm not stressing about it. I'm just happy it's consist. No more yo-yo dieting and binging. I miss binge eating at times but seeing the results pushes those thoughts to the back of my mind.
    Note to self: Be proud of yourself and stay positive.

The worst part of the surgery is the food addiction still lives on, even after 80% of your stomach is removed. Food made me happy for 30 yrs and I miss it terribly but I know i made the right ...
  4. At the hospital

    Had surgery today and what an experience! So far so good but before almost had a change of heart. The moment right before and after surgery has been the worst. I said a prayer before going under and God took care of me and the others. It's surreal
  5. 5 days pre op

    Unbelievable, it's almost my turn for surgery and seeing my name in the next week's surgery list has left me with mixed emotions. Sad because I'm leaving behind food which has been my everything, scared with the unknown outcome but staying positive, numb because I let it get to this point, and overall happy and anticipating a new beginning where I can start really liking what I see and love myself.

    So today my journey officially begins. The last couple of months I have had a hell ...
