Weight Loss Transformation of the Day: Diandra lost 173 pounds. Motivated by wanting to live a long life with her family, she opted to have weight loss surgery and change her lifestyle to lose the weight. Here is what she shared with us about her journey…
Hi, I’m Diandra and I started my weight loss journey in 2011. I lost 70 lbs on my own but started to gain it back. Finally, I decided to have the Gastric Sleeve weight loss surgery on February 27th 2014. My highest weight was 351 lbs and on surgery date I was 304 lbs. I’m now 178 pounds! I stand 5’8″ tall. Having the surgery was the best decision I have ever made. I have lost a total of 173 pounds since 2011. I went from a size 26-28 to now a size 8-10! I truly feel great. I’m now full of energy and more confident.
My motivation for losing weight was my kids. I wanted to live a long healthy life for them. I was afraid my weight would be out of control and I would become bed ridden. I also had poor self esteem and a lack of self-confidence.
I started going to the gym 3 times a week and working on doing Cardio. I started eating smaller portions and of course healthier choices. For anyone who is wanting to lose weight I say give it your all, never give up.. No matter what choice you decide to make to lose the weight just focus and maintain!!
