8 months post op reflections

Mar 22, 2010

It'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!
