Onederland!!!!!!!!!! 03/24/2011

Wow! Never thought I would get here. 199.8 as of this morning. I don’t normally weigh in on Thursday but have a semi-formal banquet to go to tonight with my honey and my goal was to be under 200 before I slipped into my new dress. I made it!!!! I don’t think I have been under 200 in probably 14 years, since I was 21. I still have a long way to go but am glad the scale is moving again.

Since my surgery on 11/15/2010 I have lost 65 pounds and my bmi has gone from 46.8, which is morbidly obese, to 35.4, which is obese. Can’t wait to get to “overweight” which is my next big goal.

I will post pictures from tonight’s banquet soon.

Half Way There 03/13/2011

As of today I am finally over half way to my goal. I have actually lost more weight than I have left to lose. What a great feeling. I am also only 1.5 pounds from Onederland.
 In a week and a half I have to go to a fancy dinner with my boyfriend for his work so yesterday I went shopping. I was actually able to walk into JcPenney and buy a size L dress of the rack and have it fit. It is so cute to. I got some really sexy heels which are a ½ size smaller than what I was wearing before and I no longer need wides. I can’t believe how much everything has changed in less than 4 months. I will post pics in the dress after the banquet.
I have been working out three to five days a week including a modern dance class and a Zumba class. Monday my sister and I are starting a 6 week belly dancing class. Having so much fun with the new body and energy.

3 month blood work (a little late)

So yesterday I finally had my family doctor run my 3 month blood work, only a couple of weeks late. He was not even aware I had the surgery until yesterday. Blood work results came back perfect today and doctor said everything looks good. I am down 60 pounds and feeling great. Next week is my 4 month surgiversary and hoping to lose the last 4 pounds to get under 200. That would be amazing.

Yesterday I bought one pair of size 14 jeans, one pair of 33 x 31 jeans, a juniors x-large shirt, and a size 14 one piece swimsuit at goodwill. Got home and everything fit. Actually need a belt with the 33 jeans. The swimsuit is a little snug but should fit soon. What an amazing feeling.

I will post some new pics next week.

Oh and in case I didn't already mention it last week was also the 18 month anniversary of quitting smoking.

Surgery Weight 264
Todays Weight 204.6
Goal Weight 140

03/05/2011 Almost to my 1st Goal

As of today I weight 205 pounds. Can't believe I am almost out of the 200's and I don't plan on ever seeing them again. Hopefully I will be there by my 4 month surgiversary in 10 days.

Yesterday was also the 18 month anniversary of me quitting smoking. I am just getting way to healthy :) Hope to be a good influence on my kids to not wait as long as I did to get healthy.

I am going to the club at least 3 times a week if not more and dragging my sister along with me. We have a great time going to classes together and are even learning a little belly dancing :)

Overall I am very happy with my sleeve and think I made the right decision. Sometimes it seems to move slower than I would like but patience has never been my strong point.
