Well I had my 6 month check up today and it went really well.
I am down 71 pounds and all my labs were great. The doctor was pleased with my progress and the way I have healed.

SO how are y'all doing?

I'm down 84 lbs, but we are still waiting for the blood test results to come back.   What a journey.   The PA said I can expect to lose 10-15 lbs more.   I'm so cool with that.  I sick if buying new clothes.   Although its better now than it had been in the past..   I can shop anywhere now.  So cool. 
Keep up the EXCELLENT Work!

Doing great - having a few issues with Hypoglycemia ( actually reactive - blood sugar drops about 45 minutes fter I eat), but it has gotten MUCH better this last month. I don't know about anyone else, but I was losing a LOT of hair there for a while - still losing it, but it isn't as bad.  Had my 6 month appointment, but haven't gotten my bloodwork done yet  (new PCP). I'm anxious to see what's going on with that - I definitely had a challenging time getting in all of my supplements for the last few months but now I'm figuring out what does and doesn't work for me and I'm doing a LOT better.

So far I've lost 98 lbs, and I would like to lose about 40-50 more. I have only really been walking for the last 6 months, so I am planning on joining the closest gym this week to add some weight training to the mix - it should really help.
I am loving buying new clothes - went from a 24-now a 12. It's hard to keep up wiht the clothes (especially the bottoms), but the shopping has been a blast. I've spent surprisingly little money on clothing but have gotten a lot of use out of what I've bought. Thanks gooodness for Target, Old Navy and WalMart! Thay've saved me! It's crazy that for so long I could really only shop at 4 plus-size stores. Now, the world is my oyster and I can choose from anywhere I want to visit  - thousands of stores at my disposal! 

Glad to hear you are both doing so well! Keep up the great work !!

At my six month appointment I was shocked to know that my body fat percentage has gone from 54% to 31%!  I LOVE MY RNY!!!
