A Year Ago…

2015-11-07 22.10.03

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:
Neck: 16
Arms: 18.5
Chest: 52
Waist: 48
Hips: 60
Thigh: 35
Calf: 20
Bra: 44H
Weight: 283

Today, Tuesday, May 16, 2017:
Neck: 14.25
Arms: 16
Chest: 41.75
Waist: 37.5
Hips: 44
Thigh: 26.5
Calf: 16.5
Bra: 38DDD
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.
