Almost 1 year out with before/after PICS

on 2/15/12 4:29 am - Garner, NC
I'm a few weeks away from my 1 year surgery anniversary date which is March 2nd.  It's hard to believe that it's been almost a year since I had gastric bypass surgery.  Time flies.

Presently I'm within 2 lbs of my goal weight.  I've lost close to 133lbs thus far and I'm feeling 100% better than I was prior to weight loss surgery.  My feet thank me alot!   I'm so much healthier and happier--I am so glad I did the weight loss surgery.  I have my life back now.  

Here are some before WLSurgery and after pics.  The "after" pics were taken last week.  It's an amazing transformation as most of you know.  It does take hard work and dedication to keep it off  long-term too.  It's kinda nice to go from a size 24/26 to a size 8!  Yippie!  Enjoying every minute of it.     

2 days before WLSurgery  SIZE 24/26

Down close to 133lbs.  SIZE 8

I can't believe my stomach was THAT BIG!
