Well, we've made it to the one year mark!
My anniversary was on Wednesday, March 12th. I saw my surgeon this morning and got a good report card. I will be getting lab work done again on Saturday, and I hope that all comes back good as well!
So, for the official 1 year weigh-in, I am down 151 pounds, which comes to 77% of my excess weight since surgery! Woo Hoo!
My BMI has dropped from 51 pre-op to a current 28.
My Body Fat % dropped from 54% pre-op to current 31%
I'd say this has worked out quite well for me this past year!
I have learned in the last couple of months how easy it would be to fall back into old habits. I let myself have more carbs and some "treats" that I didn't really need. As a result, I saw my weight loss stall out for a while.
I've become more strict with myself, and the scale is moving down once again.
I'd like to lose anywhere from another 20 to 50 lbs. I don't know how realistic my "ultimate" goal of 140 is, but I figure why not at least aim for it, right?
Hope everyone else is doing great, as well.
And HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to all of us March "babies."!
