How Our Friend Angela Went From a Size 26 to a Size 4!
Hey, my name is Angela. My first surgery was back in 2013. I had the vertical sleeve gastrectomy. I weighed 260lbs and was a size 24-26. I ate healthy but was still obese. I exercised but couldn’t get the weight off. Tried everything, weight watchers, Keto diet, went to the gym 4 days a week while working 2 jobs. Nothing helped. I’m not sure what my smallest weight was but I got to a size 14 jeans. Then I’m 2018, I had a hysterectomy and regained all but 30lbs back. I was back up to a size 18. I was disgusted with myself. I tried it all again. The 5 day pouch test, my sleeve was doing what it was supposed to be doing. Then I started having horrible heartburn with everything. I looked into having my surgery revised to the gastric bypass. I was approved and surgery was November 18th, 2019. I’m coming up on my 2 year surgiversary. Total loss since my revision, to date is 90lbs. Total since my original surgery is 120lbs. I am now in a size 6. I haven’t been in a size 6 since I was 12 or 13. I still go to the gym 3-4 days a week and I do a heavy labor job to help me in shape. This surgery has changed my life. I hope to continue to be happy and healthy for a long time.
