One Year Out!
Jul 18, 2010
I just celebrated my one year anniversary! Crazy to think that I went from a size 22, 2-3xl shirts at 274 lbs. to a size 9 M-L size shirt at 157 lbs.(yes I said 9 single digit!omg never been one of those!) For a total of 117 lbs lost in a year! I hope I can get off another 20 lbs to be about 140 but if not I am happy! This surgery saved my life and thats what I did it for not the number on the scale. Hopefully Ill get a full body shot up soon
6 months out
Jan 23, 2010
Its crazy to think I've lost 80 lbs. in only 6 months. I still need to lose about 55 or so more lbs. I hope I can reach my goal of 140 and hopefully by one year. I know its only gonna get harder from here. But its still amazing to see my transformation this far. I posted pictures if you care to look. C:
I got my Christmas wish
Dec 22, 2009
I had set my own personal goal for myself to be out of the 200's by Christmas. This last week I slacked off and didn't go to the gym for a week because of finals and a cold and I have been snacking on cookies and things I shouldn't be eating because its around the holiday. However today when I stepped on the scale at the gym it read 199! I'm officially out of the 200's forever and could not be any happier. That was what I needed to get my butt back in gear and stop that holiday snacking! I am so glad I had this surgery and that this year I'll actually be able to keep my new years resolution and lose weight! Merry Christmas and Happy holidays everybody!
cleaning out my closet
Dec 04, 2009
So I cleaned out about 5 bags of clothes from my closet to give to the salvation army.Im not even finished I still havent gone through my fat jeans yet. I kept on holding on to my favorite shirts from torrid or favorite pj pants from oldnavy loveee them but then I realized I was being dumb..I cant wear them Id look rediculous and I dont need them in my closet..that just might give me an excuse to gain all my weight back.I wish there was a plus size consienment or used clothing store I could give all my cute stuff too.Some of my clothes Ive never worn or only worn once or twice. So goodbye my favorite animal print and cute clothes from torrid and goodbye my comfy pjs and pants from old navy.Im alittle sad to let you go lol Whoever you end up with out there will be styling.haha

Oct 09, 2009
I thought I'd give an update..Ive lost 50 lbs and im not even 3 months out yet!(three months on the 16th) So happy! I need to start excersising though Ive been bad about that. Also I havent lost my diabetes..Im afraid having pancreatitis the two times i did might have killed my pancreas once and for all and now I have diabetes for life.
eating out for the first time
Aug 08, 2009
So I went out to this mexican restaurant for the first time since having surgery. I feel like im even more obessed with food now. I watched all these people eat and it made me sick to my stomach just seeing how fast and how much people really eat. I had a few bites of beans and a few bites of soup and I felt like I was going to throw up like I over did it. It hurt really bad and It felt like my stomach was up in my chest. super uncomfortable:C Then all the waiters were asking me why I wasnt eating. Does this always happen? Its kind of annoying then I have to tell the whole world that I had surgery.I hope eating out gets better cause it sucked I hated watching people, the questions and feeling like i was gonna puke the whole time.Im pretty miserable and regretting this as of right now.
