This is a picture of me today, July 7th, 2011. 8 months post lapband holding my size 24 jeans that I wore last year before surgery. This is my new fridge picture. A good reminder of why I had surgery and why every struggle, every mile stone should be celebrated. I still feel fat some days but when I look at this I realize how far I have come and it is truely motivating to continue my journey.
