    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg So it's been 5 years since my surgery. I still can't believe how fast it has gone. But I have gone from a size 26 to a size 6 and I've maintained that's the important thing! I am beyond happy and wouldn't change my decision to have the Gastic bypass back in 2011. I hope all you lovely people are doing well in your journey!

    I had a band fitted in feb this year and can only hope to be as successful as you! Coming to the realisation that it is just an aid and you have to be dedicated and committed to get the results you want, it's not just about the food you injest but your activity levels too. Your stomach is washboard and my new inspiration as blossom said! X

    It really is a tool and not the end all be all and that's the best thing to learn to accept! I had a few people go through the bypass a few months prior to myself that I know personally and both lost a tremendous amount but then became lax and gained several back. They are still way under what they started but gained a bit back. The true art to maintaining once you've lost is to realize you've made a lifestyle change. I changed what I eat, how I eat, and I work out 6 days a week! It's not easy but I took this journey to be successful and garsh darn it I plan to be! Thanks for the kind words and if you ever need tips or have questions I'm here!

    I had a lot of loose skin 3 years after my bypass (2years ago) I did a tummy tuck and breast augmentation and lift with 2 rounds of lipo. I do have a strict work out plan but there was quite a bit of skin I removed. I plan on getting the skin on my legs taken care of next. My arms I think I'm ok with!
