My life is Forever Changed

This was me on Halloween last year.  I had major health problems due to a gallbladder that over 9 Dr's said there was no "big" issue with.  I was in a bad accident where I had internal bleeding and most of my internal organs were removed.  After I finally got the gallbladder surgery (2 years later) after I had my 3rd heart attack, and the Dr had to remove scar tissue which let to other major surgeries, severed heart valve, damaged lung and liver, internal bleeding, it was on going for a while.  I had gained almost 50lbs from my normal weight.  So there I was, the heaviest I had ever been and feeling terrible.  I had to make a change.  In November I looked on ways to improve my life and I found it.  I didn't tell anyone what I was doing because I don't have the most supportive people in my life; and I wanted to not have people talk me out of it.  The results speak for itself.  My body is damaged and I have the worst time taking things you have to swallow because I don't have the normal digestive track.  When I joined I was sure I would not have any results because nothing works for me or I am allergic to it.  I had a negative outlook because I was so unhappy.  So I am here to say I loved how healthy I feel and how I dropped the weight. I dont know where my mindset would be today, had I not taken a chance and made a change in my life!  From one single mom to another; it is possible to look amazing, feel amazing, and have a new tomorrow.  I now dedicate my life to helping others.  Its funny, that the lowest time of my life, has transformed into be the best thing I have ever done.  Stay strong ladies with your goals!!

You look fantastic! You are also a very strong young woman to overcome the medical issues that you have endured. I am glad that you are doing well and wish you continued sucess. You will be sucessful, because you refused to lay down and let life's adversities destroy you.

You do look great!  You have become a much stronger woman - both on the inside and out.  You gain confidence in yourself.

Congrats on your strength and reaching your goals. You look great both ways, but imo you shouldn't lose any more.
