Weigh less today than I ever have since adulthood

Got on the scale this morning and it said 219. This is the first time in 26 years I have been down this low so it is quite exciting. Also I've been going swimming (laps) at gym at least once a week and I am amazed at how it is firming up that underarm sway that I thought would never go away! I was sure I'd require surgery to get rid of batwings. Lol. Other than the gym 1-2 times a week I haven't been getting in much exercise. I work a hectic schedule on salary (also always on-call) and I just seldom make time for working out but the pool feels like leisure and relaxes me, not like a chore so its easier to get myself to the gym for that. I try to do the eliptical for 5-10 min, and the bike for 10 before I swim and work in a few crunches with a 50 lb weight every other trip to In Shape. I just love my sleeve. I could never have done this without surgery. Best gift I could ever have given myself. We are leaving on vacation to Oregon/Washington in 3 weeks and I am hiking up a trail to see the highes****erfall in the U.S. with my husband-something else I could not have easily done with the extra 40 lbs on me. I am getting to do stuff today with just the 40 lbs gone that I would not have done for the last 10 years.

How exciting is that!!!    I just noticed that you had your surgery the same day as me and Im right with you on the amount of weight lost.   I started out heavier than you and cant wait to get to the size you are now.
