I have officially lost 100lbs since my surgery on June 27, 2011!!! I feel like this should have taken longer....its almost an unreal feeling!!! I've never been happier and healthier in my life!!!! I have gone from a 4x top down to a Large/XL in some brands. My pants size has gone from a 26/28 to a 14!!! I love shopping now!!! I remember reading others post pre-surgery about how much fun shopping was after the weight loss and i thought "yea right" thats going to take forever for me to get to that point!!! BUT I"M HERE!!! 6 months later I'M HERE!!! I still have about 40lbs until goal and now i'm stepping it up a notch with the exercise, especially going into my first holiday season since surgery, but I already feel like a success story!!! So here's a few pics....

Wow!!! You look fabulous Dahling! Would you mind shgaring what you typically eat BF L D Snacks and(about how many calories?) Do you work out a lot I know we all lose differently and it's nice to see a success story and what you think may be the reason. Was it all since surgery? Thanks so much.

Kaitlyn, you look beautiful. Welcome to the "Century Club". I think your plan to up the exercise to push towards goal is a good one - I plan to do the same thing to lose the last of mine. Good luck the rest of the way to goal.
