Total Lost: 143 lbs.

"My journey has been amazing. Seven months after my surgery I was able to complete a 26 mile bike marathon with my sons and I felt great! I would have never dreamt of doing something like that before. I run every morning now and love trying different kinds of exercise programs and challenges – I even plan to try skydiving soon! I have so much more confidence in myself and pride in knowing that I lost the weight. It hasn't all been easy, and some days it is still very hard. It's all about choices and telling myself I am worth it. Weight loss surgery was a great choice for me."
