closing in on 3 months post op

Oct 16, 2009

Here it is, my monthly post.  I now weigh 221.2 pounds!  I started at 308 pounds on April 1st!  That makes me 87 pounds lighter than I weighed just 6 short months ago!  I am flabbergasted at this weight loss.  I lost 16 pounds from September 20 to October 15th.  I am proud of my progress.  My husband can't believe it and most the time I can't either.  I feel good, have lots of energy and wow, what's not to like about the new me.
I am busy, in college full-time, a full time job and a part time job as a flu clinic nurse.  Not to forget to mention, we adopted a new pooch, so now I am taking lots of walks.  I love it though.  I wouldn't change a single thing in my life right now. 
I have had a few aha moments and I am going to start logging them.  Being able to bend over and wipe up a spill on the floor without hurting to do so.  Being able to walk really fast.  Being able to get rid of all my old clothes.  They are all wayyyy tooo big. 
I am thinking about a new haircut soon.  My hair is a little thin right now.  I find it hard to get in that 60 grams of protein a day.  We are attending OH in Rye NY next weekend, I can't wait... Will only be there on Saturday though, can't leave my babies overnight.  That is about it for now, next post......Thanksgiving time......
