Here are some pics for comparison.
This is me back in June with my granddaughter at the zoo.
This is November 15. The night before surgery.
This is me December 17. One month and 1 day out from surgery.
I still have a ways to go but I'm proud of what I've accomplished so far.
There are cynics out there who will say that this is the "easy way out" but I have news for you...I've never done anything harder. It's an aid to my weight loss goals. I still have to watch what I eat...even more than I ever have. I have to exercise and keep track of what I am eating through out the day. The biggest difference is that I see a loss in weight most days that I step on the scale and it motivates me to keep going!
