Tomorrow will be my 15 Month Surgiversary.  Not much has changed in the last couple of months.  I have hovered around 130 which is my goal and I'm very happy.  However, when I took pictures last night to post, I didn't like the way I looked in the picture.  Now we all know we never like pictures when we are heavy, but I can still find tons of stuff I'm not happy with.  Having lost 115 lbs. I think this is ridiculous, but mind games are a *****  Now looking at before and after photos, that is a different story.  I can definitely see the difference.

I  have found that I enjoy to socialize and party more now then ever before.  I have to watch my alcohol consumption, because I can drink a lot in one setting.  I won't remember it the next day, but I can do it.  I'm trying to get out and live life as much as possible.  I've switched my excersice from mostly cardio to weights.  Trying to tone and define.  Anyway, proof is in the pictures, so here you go.  For all the newbies, I was selfpay and would do it over again 100 X's.  Love my new life and sleeve!!!!  No regrets!!

Thanks!  I don't know about glowing, but I have the raccoon eye thing working pretty well.

YAY Vera! Congratulations! You look FABULOUS! I love the rock fountain on your porch and your puppy dogs are precious! You look amazing and should be SO proud of yourself! I wish I could get to 130. I'm at 157, which was my original goal. How tall are you?

I'm 5'4" and I stalled around 150 for a while.  Then checked myself to make sure I was following the rules, buckled down and started dropping again.  You can do it!!

Thanks!  I'm really trying to tone my arms now.  It's proving to be very difficult.
