8 months post op reflections
Mar 22, 2010It's amazing to think that 8 months have past since surgery. Some days have been hard. Some have been easy. Since my journey began in October of 2008 with my medical supervised diet, I have lost 97 pounds. Since I see the same face in the mirror each morning, I don't always get the real picture. So this past week, I took the time to compare SIDE BY SIDE pictures of before and after...it is still amazing to me. I FEEL so much better! My health has improved!
I have not had complications and for that I am thankful. I have followed the plan and for the most part have stuck to what I know is good. I have not exercied as much as I should and I know that both my body shape and weight loss have been impacted, but my exercies plan is improving!
I've been stuck at the same weight for about a month. Checking in with my July pals, it seems to be a common theme. I still have a ways to go to hit my personal goals. AND I need to start saving for reconstructive surgery!
