If you keep doing what you're doing, you'll keep getting what you're getting. Quit doing what you're doing!

I lost 218 lbs without weight loss surgery. However, I gained 62 lbs back. As of May 1, 2014, I have lost all 62 of those stuborn pounds plus a few more. Sept. 2014, I had gastric bypass surgery. I need to get down to 200 lbs so I can have knee surgery or face my fears of not being able to walk @ all. Therefore, spending the rest of my life bedridden. Since surgery, I have lost 166 lbs. Grand total lost is 376.0 lbs. I am now standing and walking better. The excruciating pain that I suffered with for years has decreased tremendously.

Ain't no stopping us now. We are on the move.
