Let’s show some BWLW love to Lanise. She lost 158 pounds with Gastric Bypass weight loss surgery. After years of using different dieting methods, she is very glad about her choice. Here is her weight loss story:
335 lbs to 177 lbs! After years and years of Weight Watchers, Slim Fast, diet doctors, etc, Gastric Bypass was my last option. I love that after 4 years(this November) I still get full after a small meal! Yes, I have to take vitamins, calcium and b12s for the rest of my life. I’m fine with that! My only regret is not doing it a decade ago!
My motivation: I was tired of carrying around this weight, tired of my back hurting and I wanted to travel more.
Eating habits: Once you have gastric bypass your are forced to change your eating habits. I hear a lot of people say that weight loss surgery is an easy way out, but in all reality it’s not. It’s a lifestyle change. You can not longer eat the huge portions. Some foods that you used to be able to eat, you may not be able to tolerate them. After 4 years post surgery, I still eat small portions, eat on smaller plates or on plates with sections.
Workout routines: I walk a lot and I try to get a least two days a week in the gym.
Advice for others: Do what’s best for you. Whether it’s weight loss surgery or doing it on your own, just be motivated and have faith in yourself.
