Before After

Lost 165 lbs

With Gastric Bypass Surgery

My name is Emily. My WONDERFUL, AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, and EXCITING journey began on June 17th, 2020. I started this journey because I did not have any other options left. I had numerous medical problems, could not even walk up a flight of stairs without getting out of breath, and could not garden like I loved to do along with other things I wanted to do in life. The process, as per insurance, required 6-month supervision. I thought long and hard about my decision going back and forth with the “yes and no,” and if I was going to receive the support I needed to make it through the surgery and through my journey, but truth is, I was the only one who needed to be my own strength, my own person, and my own support system. I did this surgery and journey for ME! If you plan on doing this surgery for any other reason than yourself and want to make someone else happy, without making your lifestyle better, then you are in it for the wrong reason. I am 10 months out and have lost 106 pounds. My starting weight was 272 pounds, my current weight is 165 pounds, and my heaviest weight was 300 pounds! My lifestyle has changed for the best. I am now able to garden and work in my flower bed, and I do not have to be on any Specific medications for health problems anymore that were required because of my weight. I am HEALTHY. I am Strong. I am MYSELF again! This surgery has changed my life and has me feeling BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING, HEALTHY, and up for new CHALLENGES! I can’t wait to see your journey! -Emily
