Let’s show some Black Women Losing Weight Love to Kebra. She lost 145 pounds with gastric bypass weight reduction surgery. Here is what she shared with us:
Got a ways to go!!! However, I’m determined and getting there after almost 9 months and a 145 pounds of weight loss!! Gastric sleeve surgery help saved my life. I am changing my lifestyle regarding how I eat and exercise. I think I can meet my goal!!!
I elected to have gastric sleeve surgery 9/25/12. It can be a challenge at times, but I remain focused. I have struggled with my weight all my life!!!! Some say they wouldn’t take a chance and have surgery to lose weight. Well, I say I was taking the chance of not waking up each day with all that weight on me. I feel that since Sept 25th, 2012, I hit the reset button on life. Blessed and grateful.
I changed the way I eat. I mainly eat foods higher in protein and cut my carbs down to hardly any only in tiny portions in moderations. I try to drink primarily water in my diet and I cut out sweets all together!!! As far as exercise I workout with my Kinect due to the crazy work schedule I had!!! Since I have a more logical work schedule now, I’m about to go back hitting the gym to get a real workout!!! My motivation was my daughter being around for her and a better healthier living for myself. Didn’t want to die young!!
