12 MONTH UPDATE
Mar 23, 2009Ok so it has been way too long since I last posted. My 1 year surguversary just passed and I am doing amazing! I am down a total of 150lbs. ( currently 185lbs) I am now wearing a size 11/12 or L pants, and a size m/l tops. I have lost over 50 inches. I still can't believe it. I have come so far!! I am still paralyzed in the left leg so exercise is a bit challenging, but I am progressing well! I will probably need some work done once I reach my goal, but it is still possible I might not. My skin elasticity is pretty good.
I still have better days then others when it comes to food. Some days I am still not able to eat much. Red meat is still a no for me, which I do not mind because I never was much of a red meat eater. I still can eat all the foods I love just smaller amounts. I drink as much water as possible, and try very hard to keep my protein levels high. I go through spells where my hair thins, luckily I have a lot of it so it is not noticeable.
I am finally enjoying life again! This is the best thing that has happened to me and I thank God everyday for this gift! I truly feel reborn. For all of those waiting hang in there, it is so worth the wait!!!!
