Got on the scale this morning and I'm now down 26 pounds since my surgery and 38 pounds since my initial consultation in June. I'm feeling better and better and went to try clothes on in a store yesterday. I can now fit into a size 20 pair of jeans. I would say that in another 10 pounds I will look better in those jeans. I didn't purchase them because I have one pair of jeans that size that fit me and when they are too big I will HAVE to purchase another pair.

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!

  1. I don't know how I missed this post. Way to go. Keep it up. You will make it and your goals will be met. I can't imagine it being the easy way out. Having surgery is not easy and there is NO easy route to losing weight!
