Morning of surgery (5am) showered and ready to go!




5 month surgiversary







It has been 5 months since surgery and what a learning experience.  I am so grateful for this opportunity to change my life for the better and I take it all very seriously.
I follow plan, I exercise and try to learn from those who went before me and found the best way to goal.....the vets!
Elina, Frisco, Jimbo, USAF wife, to name a few-the success stories who have helped me in ways they would never know and I truly appreciate their generosity and loyalty to keep contributing to us all-way after they have reached their goals and maintained them.
A big thank you to OH and all the contributors.  This journey is a personal one, with many views, but we all share more than we know!

Look at you!!!  You are doing so great, you will be to goal before you know it.

I echo Elina in saying you are a gift to the forum.  I have greatly appreciated the time you've taken in answering my questions and easing my fears, and sharing your journey.

I was actually coaching my ten year old son (who was taking the after pictures) on how to adjust the zoom and flash :) 
Your right, the before pictures I am definitely forcing a smile, but the after shots- I am very happy......even if it may not completely show. :)
