Nov 2016: I have maintained my weight by eating small portions. I’m also very active and I love to walk. On this journey, I have learned not to go back to old habits. I stay away from the scale these days. I don’t focus on how much weight I’m lost. Instead, I just focus on my lifestyle change and I don’t beat myself up.
June 2016: I’m 4 years out from having gastric bypass surgery. I’ve lost over 100 pounds and kept the weight off for more than 3 years. I’m still eating small portions and staying active.
Dec 2015: Carmen has lost at total of 130 pounds with gastric bypass surgery and hard work. We’ve been following her story since March 2013 and she’d released 65 pounds at that time. More than 2 years later, we asked her what she’s been doing to maintain her weight loss. She says, “To maintain my weight loss I still drink protein shakes, drink water, eat small portions and continue to stay active. Also, my faith has brought me thru.”
April 2014: Carmen wrote in to let us know that she is still going strong with her weight loss and has lost 65 more pounds, for a total of 130 pounds lost after weight loss surgery. She says: “I would love share my story. I was battling with diabetes for 12 years. It took my faith in God to make a change in my life. I lost a total of 130 pounds with in 12 years. I had my ups and downs but my faith in God kept me going.”

Let’s show some BWLW love to Carmen who lost 65 pounds with weight loss surgery. She feels that it is the best decision that she has ever made.
She wrote to us at the end of February saying…
“I lost my weight by having weight loss surgery 9 months ago. I have lost 65 pounds. It was the best decision that I have ever made. To God be the glory! I been dealing with diabetes for about 12 years. What woke me up was realizing that I needed to make a change in my life. My doctor told me that I was heading towards dialysis if I didnt do something about my weight. I give GOD the glory for being with me every step of the way. If you have question please feel free send a message GOD bless.”
