Wow. As of yesterday it has been 6 months since I traveled to Mexico to have weight loss surgery. What an amazing journey it has been so far. Thought I would post my stats and some before and after pictures that show some of the amazing transformations I have undergone. Besides the physical changes I have so much more confidence in myself and am starting to feel strong again. I have more energy and actually feel excited about the possibilities in my future. Gastric Sleeve surgery was the best decision I ever made for myself.
