Who went on vacation and wore a bikini for the first time??...

ME!! That's who!! Lol Wow and how great it felt! 

This was the first time in my 34 yrs that I wore shorts on vacay, wore a bikini or bathing suit without a tshirt over and did not try to hide it! 

But now I am home and it is freezing! Lol

I am a year and a few months post op and still tracking daily, staying on the path and staying away from things like alcohol. 

Life feels pretty great! 

Sorry, had to share somewhere, where people might understand.

Happy new year to all!

losing 100+ lbs makes me feel wonderful, but wearing a bikini isn't for me...never was even before I became obese...I choose to wear clothes that make me feel comfortable..the only part I would not be showing off is my inner thighs and my jiggly arms...everyone has their own level of comfort~!

prior to surgery 323lbs....4 years post-op maintaining between 108- 114 lb loss. 

life is AMAZING when you continue on the right path~!.  Use your surgeons gift to the fullest~!

surgery done in Duluth, MN
