Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes

How do you measure a year?

How about like this?

As of today:
164 pounds lost, from 404 to 240.
BMI reduced from 63.3 to 37.6
16 pant sizes dropped, from 34/36 to 18/20.
Several shirt sizes down, from 3x/4x to L/XL.
Spring quarter 2008 GPA: 2.57. Spring quarter 2009 GPA: 4.0
I am healthier, happier, more energetic, and more fulfilled in every way than I can ever remember being.

The decision to have surgery was one of the hardest I ever made. I still remember the crying, the fear, the insecurity, the shame, the pain, and all the other negative things that went along with the decision.

But I know now beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was the best decision I ever made for myself. 

Happy rebirthday to me!

PS: I've taken new pictures. They should be posted by the end of the day.
