November 2015 – This picture from when David and I went to Helena GA was an oh dear Lord moment. I knew I needed to start the process of getting this weight off. I have always struggled, but this was my heaviest–315 pounds. It was a fun weekend, but in a lot of pain, and really struggled to keep up with everyone.
Day of surgery – May 16, 2016.
I was 283 pounds. I felt really good about getting to this point. I followed the guidelines of my nutritionist. I struggled everyday, but knew that surgery was my goal. This picture was taken on Friday before my Monday surgery. I was excited.
David took my measurements:
Today, Tuesday, May 16, 2017:
Weight: 190 (will do official on Thursday)
So I have lost a total of 53 inches. 53 Inches!! I have skin issues. My arms are basically bat wings. Boobs -ha. Just skin everywhere. I wouldn’t change a thing. Not one. I love that I am able to do most anything. I have zip lined. I participate in 5k’s – walking – but I am NOT on the couch.
Hair is coming back, and this time curly – curly! I am still adjusting, but at least it is growing back. So all in all, a very good year.
I go for my 1 year check on Thursday. I will give my officially update then.
