1 year since surgery and my birthday.....a little early.

Aug 29, 2011

So here I am almost 1 year out from surgery and as of last Friday I weigh 207 pounds, that makes a total of 137 pounds gone since the day of surgery . My surgery was Sept 2 and my birthday is August 31st, so I have a lot to celebrate :-). I'm making this post a little early because I'm going to be off for 13 days and I won't have access to a computer, hopefully when I come back I'll have pictures since I haven't uploaded any in awhile. This hasn't been easy by a long shot and for people that think it is I wish I could make them understand that it isn't. I've heard or had people comment and say "oh you took the easy way out", when they say that I just yell at them or better still I want them to try to remember to eat, take your vitamins, get your protein in, exercise, work and still live your life. After a couple of days I'm sure they would change their minds.   I never really could picture myself at 200 pounds and now that I'm almost smaller than that it kind of freaks me out,  I don't want to get to small.  In the beginning I wanted to get down to about 160-165 now I think that if I get down to 180-185 I'll be happy.   I know that it really is up to my body but I'm crossing my fingers and toes that I'll stop around then, lol   My next goal is to get under 200 pounds, which I'm so close to.   For those of you out there who are just starting this journey it's not easy but it is so worth it. Take the dive you'll be so happy that you did
