230 lbs Down in 20 months!!-And still going STRONG!

umh3vvbu3hwf.jpg
Where do I start? A lifetime of Morbid Obesity- 2 failed Baratric Surgeries (1990 Stomach Stapling- 2014 Roux-En-Y). Then 23 months ago I knew my life was going to change as my now Ex asked for a Divorce. A switch snapped in my head- And I am on a Mission-- to be ME--and be content. When people tell you you can't-- YOU CAN! Thank You MFP- I found this site & I learned =DO NOT LIE to yourself. Food Journal, measure everything-- watch your CICO. Accept bad days, move past them & make sure that tomorrow is a better day. Crush Your Goals My MFPals!....❤💪🏃‍♂️🚴‍♂️😊🙏
