Hi everyone! I was at 282 pounds in October 2013, that's when I decided to have gastric bypass surgery. I don't want any negative comments about the surgery on here, I don't need anyone telling me anything, I'm living happily after my surgery. I went from 282 pounds to 265 pounds the day of my surgery (03/10/14) & almost a year later I'm sitting at 158 pounds. I am SO happy with my decision. I'm so much more healthier, my BMI went from 45 to 25! I can do so much more than ever before, I have the courage to go out and do things I'd be afraid of before, and I'm so much more confident in myself as a person. It's been a very long, hard road but I finally made it. I'm happy with where I'm at now, just plan on toning up some. Here's the results so far! :)

    I definitely think gastic bypass is an awesome alternative for some people. Let's face it, you can have all the motivation in the world, but if your stomach NEEDS food, and your body just CANNOT exercise, what do you do? You look fantastic!

    From what I have seen, Gastric Bypass is not magic cure. I'm sure you still worked really hard to get to where you are now! Congrats!
