Let’s show some Black Women Losing Weight love to Gina Tracey. She lost 132 pounds with gastric bypass weight loss surgery. Here is what she shared about losing weight:
Hi, my name is Tracey and I’m from Ft. Lauderdale. I had gastric bypass weight reduction surgery on August 17, 2012 and I’ve lost 132 pounds within the year. Having surgery was one of better decisions I’ve made, after trying so many other things to lose weight. I feel better than ever at 46 years old. Your BWLW Facebook page is truly an inspiration and I’m glad to see so many women making a change in their lives.
My starting weight was 300 pounds. I now weigh 168 pounds. My motivation to lose the weight was imaging myself at the size I use to be in high school. Once the nutritional classes I took after surgery taught me that eating the right combination of foods and eating several small amounts throughout the day would change my life, my life did change. Protein is the key to successful weight loss after gastric bypass surgery. When I eat my meals now, protein and veggies are my first priority. I am now working with a personal trainer for my toning process. God Bless
