Fly High, Rocketship!

My Weight Loss Journey

In 2019, I enrolled in the Cleveland Clinic's Bariatric and Metabolic Institute in hopes of getting a life saving weight loss surgery. On October 20, 2020, I received a vertical sleeve gastrectomy. My life has changed.

Start Weight

By October 3 of 2020, I reached the weight of 377lbs. This has been my heaviest weight. October 3rd is when I began my liquid diet for my surgery. The day of surgery I was 364lbs. The Cleveland Clinic measures everything against my surgery date, but I prefer looking at how much I weighed at the start of the journey.
