Memorial Day weekend 2008 - and I feel great!
May 24, 2008
It's been a while since I updated my page. I was taking a break from repairing and painting walls in our kitchen and thought I would update my progress. I now weight around 203 pounds....down about 180 pounds from my highest recorded weight. I am still feeling great and thinking about trying to lose another 10 pounds. I have been going between 203 and 210 but would like to get under 200 to see how I feel at that weight. With all the work that I will be doing on the house updating our kitchen and master bath and installing new flooring in the whole house, I am hoping that all that physical effort will help...we'll see.
I ended up with some extra skin that did not tighten up with the weight loss. At times, I still feel overweight just seeing myself in the mirror, but I have to stay focused on the health benefits of this surgery. I am in the process of getting life insurance...something I could not do before because of my weight.
After a year and 3 months, I can still say that having the surgery was the right thing for me.
