I Knew My Life Would be Forever Changed
Before my surgery I was a diabetic, I had sleep apnea, high blood pressure, and lots of busy pain from carrying around 450 pounds.
My surgery was in June of 2016. I wanted to get the gastric sleeve bypass surgery for a few years and it didn’t seem possible. I missed some of my doctor appointments and had to start over a couple times. I even gave up at one point.
Then I was approved for the surgery. That is when I knew my life would be forever changed.
It has been 10 months and I have lost over 150 pounds. I go to the gym at least twice a week. My asthma is all but gone. I can accept challenges athletically and not feel like I’m going to die.
I feel much better and see a bright future now, not death before I’m 70. I have a much better life in general.
I do have to admit that I still struggle with my eating habits. But, I feel like I have a chance to keep working on that. Every day is a fight, but now for different reasons.
