Height: 5' 2"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 6/2/2016 (this time)

Starting Weight: 311 lbs

Goal Weight: 150 lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: stress eating or eating more just because it tastes really good

Following any specific plan: gastric sleeve done so low fat protein and low carb

Anything else you would like to share with us: Had to pay for the surgery on my own but decided to use money I had saved for something else to do something for myself after a lifetime of doing for everyone else. Frankly, if I don't lose the weight, I won't be around long enough to enjoy anything else. Lost 43 lbs to date and expect to reach my goal in the next 18 - 24 months. It's still recent so still having trouble eating/drinking but know that will get better because it's already better than just a couple of weeks ago. I'm not hungry so that helps and expect as I can eat more variety of foods that I can start getting creative in the kitchen to enjoy food more than I do right now. It's a challenge to get in the protein and liquid (water) right now. I am still hoping that I will be able to exercise soon on my knee that needs to be replaced but still struggling with walking right now. Tried several things for the pain and a gel shot is up next although I know that isn't guaranteed to help. In the meantime, will just focus on losing the weight to take the pressure off my knee.

Height: 5 4.5

Eye/Hair Color: Hazel/ currently blue

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Ive been trying to lose for 20 years, but my weight loss surgery was on 12/28/2016

Heaviest weight: 305

Surgery weight: 280

Current weight: 248

Goal Weight: 145lbs

Biggest Hurdle to Overcome in Weightloss: carbohydrates (I love bread items, they are my comfort food, so I am working away from comfort food toward comfort activities. )

Following any specific plan: High protein low bad carbs along with calorie counting

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am more focused and have way more willpower. I have two young daughters and they inspire me to be as healthy as I can be, so I can be there for them as long as I can. I was just taken off my insulin pump after 15 years, so that is also a huge motivator that I can do this and it is worth it!

Anything else you want to share with us? My main goal is to increase my life expectancy. With all of my comorbidities, it is important for me to do this. I intend to get fit enough to be taken off my medications and enjoy life with my children.
