6 Month Surgery Anniversary, 05/15/2011

Wow. As of yesterday it has been 6 months since I traveled to Mexico to have weight loss surgery. What an amazing journey it has been so far. Thought I would post my stats and some before and after pictures that show some of the amazing transformations I have undergone. Besides the physical changes I have so much more confidence in myself and am starting to feel strong again. I have more energy and actually feel excited about the possibilities in my future. Gastric Sleeve surgery was the best decision I ever made for myself.

The last two weeks I have been trying to break the 190 barrier. Today I finally hit 189.2. So excited and feel like I am getting closer and closer to my goal. The last time I remember being truly comfortable with my size I was 180, so looking forward to that. I also realized today that in the last 5 weeks I have lost 10 pounds and that is so amazing. Later this month it will have been 6 months since my surgery and I can't believe how much has happened since then.

Though sometimes it is hard having this surgery is still the best decision I ever made for myself.
