164 lbs lost in 1 year!

Hi Everyone,
I wanted to tell you a little bit about my weight loss journey over the past year. On 3/9/16 I had gastric sleeve surgery. The decision to have surgery was not one I took lightly, but I needed to make it in order to save my life and be around for my daughter. At my highest weight I was 337 lbs. It was difficult to even walk up a flight of stairs. Today, with the help of my tool, healthy food choices, and countless hours in the gym, I am 173 lbs. I feel amazing and am proud to set a healthy example for my daughter. I track my food everyday, and go to the gym 6 days a week. I am even training for a half marathon!

I hope my story shows that there is not just one way to go about a journey to health. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

    You do look amazing. Very inspiring. I'm also working my way out of the 300's. I'm not doing surgery but I'm doing what MFP recommends. I'm down from 363 to 288 now. Long way to go yet, but I will.

    Thats amazing. Well done
