Let’s show some love to Kellee who lost 101 pounds. This blogger and proud mom of 2 opted for weight loss surgery to end a lifelong battle with her weight. Check out her blog. Here is what she shared with us:
My name is Kellee, and this is my story! My life seems pretty happy….HAPPY not Perfect, but allow me to invite you on my journey and show you what it took me to get here. Ok, here’s the kinda long version. Just care with me!!! All my life, I have struggled with being me. To my friends and family I was Kellee, The Fun (and Chubby) Girl that was always cracking jokes, smiling and being outgo ing! That was the person I appeared to be! I have always been very expressive and very different, but I have always felt like, well I couldn’t be ME. Why, Because I wasn’t happy with the person I was. Even as a child, I remember being called fat by classmates and to this day I HATE that word with a passion! I couldn’t understand it. I tried to be nice to everyone, have fun with my friends, treat others the way I wanted to be treated, yet sometimes I was ridiculed for my size. I would go home, cry and ask God why he made me the way I was! My weight, my lips, my teeth..I hated EVERYTHING ABOUT MY BODY! Ok, I’m getting depressed…NO! I’m Not (Bi-polar moment) ……Sooooooo Back to the journey.
My life consisted of weight gain and weight lost! I went through so many phases of trying to be the Kellee I was yearning to be! After diets, starvation, and pills of course, I decided I’d had ENOUGH! Here I was 28 years, and almost 300 pounds! This was ridiculous! I had 2 small children. I wanted to run with and LIVE for! SOMETHING had to be done.. AND GUESS WHAT…..I did it Dammit!
After Lots of research, tears, fears and tons prayers I decided to Weight Loss Surgery (I opted for the Lap Band). It has changed my life FOREVER! Weight loss Surgery is NOT a easy fix! Sure, its a Boost, but you still have to work EXTREMELY Hard!!! I had to change my food portions, exercise, and change my lifestyle for good! I’m still a work in progress, but I’m well on my way!!!
