Here's a picture of my hernia the morning of surgery. Friggin grossed me out for 7+ months, getting bigger and bigger. The abdominal binder was a ***** I'm SO happy it's repaired now, although today I was jokingly lamenting that I missed having a ledge to lay my ipod while holding a coffee.

And here are some pictures of me in the new clothes and earrings I got today. My top is 2x (down from 6X) and my bottom is 24 or 3X - down from stretched-out 6X. Couldn't find anything bigger. Number-size clothes never fit in pants.

I feel like a model. I haven't had dangly earrings .. pretty well ever. I got my ears pierced for the fourth time in Sept 2010 when I hit 100lbs lost, but they didn't heal up well until just recently (figures, since my incision didn't heal for a year either). I didn't know I was allergic to nickel so the other three times I had my ears pierced they never healed up successfully.

 OMG you look amazing....That hernia looks like a baby....  But love the earrings....

  Choose love, power, and acceptance instead of what we default to which is fear, dependence, and intolerance

Aww thanks everyone for your kind words!

It's great having a neck for once in my life. LOL I'm actually surprised it's so long! Sometimes I catch a glimpse of myself in a window reflection or mirror somewhere out and about, and I double take cuz I look so much taller and my neck seems to go on forever! LOL not imbedded in a c-collar of fat.
