This is Kelli before her weight loss surgery and this morning. Both photos were taken at her doctor's office. She's lost 183 lbs and is about two pounds from her "goal weight." She'd like some tummy tuck surgery to get rid of some excess skin but she's done a remarkable job.
This surgery is by no means "the easy way out." She has to be very careful to get proper nutrition and to not backslide to those easy calories (think regular Pepsi).
I'm quite proud and love her immensely (pardon the pun).
