Mar 17, 2009Wow, it has been about 3 weeks since I posted. i am still here on OH every day, checking out all of your profiles to see how you are doing! I am so proud of all of my friends. i was looking at a few of them today and I didn't even recognize some people. I need to add some pictures of myself but i must admit that I don't have a camera of my own - I have to use my daughters. I guess I should ask for a camera for christmas now that I really don't care about having my picture taken. They can take as many pictures of me as they wish!
So I am now down 61.4 pounds since the day of my surgery. I am now 184.6 pounds unless my scale was just being nice to me this morning. Just 24 pounds to 160#'s!! It seems like i am a slower loser but I am so happy with how I look and feel. My 18's are getting much looser and I can fit into some 16's. One pair of 18's is really baggy and I'm getting comments that they are too big. I am having so much fun buying new clothes although I am buying cheap ones. I guess I need to go to some garage sales or something but I am not a garage sale type of person so I have been going to Walmart to get my pants (i have 3 pair that fit me). And I have been to the clearance rack at Kohl's for my shirts. I did splurge once and bought a shirt for $21.00 but it will fit me for quite a while..
It is becoming even more apparent that i am going to need plastics....Clearly on my stomach and dang my arms sure are flapping when I wave goodbye to my Grandson. I thought my arms would be OK but it looks like they aren't. I'm going to have to keep my arms down when I wave from here on out. My sister works for my ob/gyn and we are going to work on documenting any skin issues that she is certain I am going to have on my belly.
Well congrats to everyone for doing so well. I am so proud of you.
For all of you midwest people, sign up for the OH event in Chicago. I am definitely going there!! And I hope to meet a lot of you in person.
