Good Bye Obesity, hello Overweight - not for long though!!
For my 10 month anniversary I get to lose the designation of being obese and be in the Overweight catergory....hopefully not for much longer though. Not sure I will get to the Normal bmi range for my 1st year anniversary (my weight loss has slowed quite a bit in the last 2 months, but it will be shortly thereafter.........went to Wal-Mart yesterday to try on coat (trying not to invest too much money into my clothing at this point and all of the XL were too big and the Larges fit me perfectly.....with another 36lbs to go it is possible I may get into a Medium....which is just insane....never thought I would get down into an XL never mind a large.....so thankful for this surgery!! So for those trying to figure it out I have lost a total of 116lbs since my surgery in January and a grand total of 162lbs since starting with TWH last August!! For those just starting their journey, there is hope and you will get there.
Congratulations! What an inspiring post. I hope to get there too :)

The ones that say "you cant" and "you won't" are probably the ones scared that "you will"!!
