Yep! That is absolutely correct! I officially weigh 199.5 lbs! I had no idea how amazing under 200 would feel. I haven't weighted under 200 since I was 18 years old. Today I felt so confident and happy over my weight loss. I still have a little ways to go, but it doesn't seem overwhelming anymore. At my highest weight it felt like I would never get where I wanted to be. Now that I only have 39.5 lbs to go, it totally feels like I can hit it. It is so encouraging. I am so much more mobile now and can do things that I couldn't do before. Man it's wonderful! This surgery has given me the tool I needed to get my weight under control. I am so thankful to God for helping me through the first 6 1/2 months. There is so much more to the surgery than just the physical aspects of it. There are a lot of mental aspects you have to get under control. Some of my problems with food was my choices. We eat out a lot and I would always choose the unhealthy items. Mostly fried foods and starchy fried foods. My diet was so unhealthy! Thinking back on how much fried yucky stuff I ate really amazes me.
My 6 month follow up was rescheduled until Oct. 12th. This time of the month for me at work is crazy so I called and rescheduled, which worked out great because when I told them what I needed to do they were relieved...apparently this works out better for them too. :)
Well for now that's it.
