Tamillia lost 110 pounds with gastric bypass weight reduction surgery. She is a truck driver by profession. Being on the road means her workout options are limited, but she has been able to workout consistently and change her eating habits. Here is what she shared about her weight loss journey so far:
My name is Tamillia. I began my weight loss journey last November with gastric bypass weight loss surgery. My weight before surgery was 340 pounds. At my last doctor visit, my weight was 230 pounds. My motivation was not to develop heart problems or high blood pressure since it runs on both sides of my family. My other motivation is my daughter. I want to live a long life so that I can see her grow up. I am 7 1/2 months post op. My goal weight is 170 pounds.
I continue to eat right and exercise when time permits because I am a truck driver and my schedule is full. My journey continues daily. I walk at least 4 days a week for about 2 miles a day and I workout with some resistant bands daily as well. After my surgery, I am eating small portions, protein shakes, and green vegetables. I also eat grilled or baked chicken and fish. Being a truck driver my exercising is limited to walking around my truck & trailer daily and doing resistant bands.
