Hello my name is Wiltonja, and I am 47 years old. I am a mother of two young men and a wife of 21 years. I have struggled with weight loss just about all my life. In 2020, I decided it was time to take my life back.
Weighing in at a whopping 399 pounds, I was out of breath and hurting. I had high blood pressure and was borderline diabetic. My doctors had never mentioned any other methods of weight loss. They just kept prescribing pills.
In July of 2022, I had gastric sleeve surgery and it has changed my life!
I went from 399 pounds to now weighing 269 pounds! I still have a ways to go, but I am so proud of the person that I have become. I am thankful for my husband and children pushing me!
I work out at least three times a week and try to maintain my weight! It’s still a struggle at time, but I will not allow myself to go back to that old person!
Stay focused, don’t get distracted! Stay the course! We are not perfect, but we are worth it!
