  1. Not sure why you are so surprised! I knew you would make it. I have watched you throughout your journey my friend and from the beginning I saw the strength and determination you had to reach your goal. The NSV's you posted along the way showed how happy and healthy you were getting. You haved encouraged and inspired everyone around you as well. So thank YOU and congratulations on everything. *inserts Rocky sound track and starts to do the happy dance for Pasquini* Good thing this is a computer because me dancing could be a little scary LOL
  2. I asked Santa for a size 4 jeans so I could use them as my "goal" jeans. Well I must have been a really good girl this year because they fit perfectly! Merry Christmas everyone! May all your NSV's come true
  3. Meg I still have issues with eggs lol. The taste of them just isn't right to me anymore. Which is sad cause I used to love them! Now I can eat them if they are mixed with something, but by them selves, they do not sit well at all. Congratulations, i would love to be able to eat just eggs so jealous LOL
  4. You look like a brand new person! Great job!
  5. I am so happy for you! That is amazing, you fought the fight now its time to sit back and enjoy all your hard work. I know maintaining will be a breeze for you, if not then you always have us Congratulations!
  6. Thanks everyone! I was really surprised when they actually fit too! They just looked so small I thought no way are they going to fit yet lol. I feel and see it sometimes but sometimes not so much because of all the skin and left over stuff. I am seriously considering the TT or lipo in the mid/bottom belly but that isn't going to be for at least another year and a half. Thanks again for everything
  7. Absolutely amazing! You look fantastic, but I am sure you already know this lol. Great job!
  8. wooohooo! So happy for you Linda! Screw the fitness pal though, you are doing wonderful at your own pace and that is the only pace you need. Congratulations on Onederland!
  9. Thanks you guys! I did feel great Friday and it showed. I never would have gotten here without the support of all of you.
  10. Thanks, Coops! That is my surgeons goal, I'm still on the fence about if I should go further than where I'm at. I'm thinking maybe 5-10 rather than 14. Its a weird feeling. I like where I'm at but I can see where I can be better or lose more. You know how it is, everyone says you look great, but you tend not to see (most of the time) what they are talking about. I did on Friday though, lol. Stay well my friend!
  11. Thanks, Everyone! It was a weird week to say the least. Felt boated and "fat" all week then yesterday I felt like the cats meow LMAO. Those are my size 6 Old Navy jeans and they are getting baggy on me! I'm almost afraid of buying 4's, I never thought I would get "there".
  12. Now THAT is an NSV! WTG Sharon! I love cords, but for the same reason never wore them. I think I may have to do just that LOL.

    Tummy Tuck...have You Had One?

    I used to think that it didn't matter to me, now, after losing weight and being so close to goal, when I look in the mirror I look like a deflated balloon. I have been obese since I was a little girl and my nick name was "Tubby" ... seriously, thats what my everyone called me until I was about 7 or 8 , can you imagine they all thought it was cute! But I digress hahaha, So after having a cyst removed from my ovarie, a c-section, my gallbladder removed and the VSG, along with he deflated balloon look it looks like a crazy road map between the scars and stretch marks. I don't have the cash to pay for it now, but I am seriously considering it next year. Whats one more scar? LOL
  14. Oh you KNOW I am doing a happy dance for you, don't you? That is phenominal, amazing, fantastic, fabulous, wonderful ummmm I'm sure I can think of a few more adjectives to add LOL Sharon, I am so happy for you! And BTW LOVE the peacock blue socks and nehi grape chucks! You are one pretty little peacock, so strut your stuff all you want!
  15. WOWZERS! You look fabulous! Love love that dress!
  16. Irene, you are amazing to say the least. I have no doubt that you will maintain and stay there and stay fit. You know why? Because you are one of those women who can accomplish anything they set their minds to.

    Nsv - Size 8, Ya Heard!

    That is fantastic, Rev! Well deserved successes too. I am so happy for you!
  18. This is just the beginning! You have done an amazing job so far and you should feel proud. You have taken control of your life and your future is brighter than anything you have ever thought possible. Congratulations on your success and future successes.
  19. I see all the pics everyone posts and everytime I just smile. The sleeve has brought out the inner fashionista in all of us. I just love how much more confident and happy we all are when we pose for pictures. I am sure this translates over into everyone's daily life as well. Keep doing what you are doing. You are making yourself a healthiear person for yourself and your family. We here always saw you shine and now you are shining from the outside as well as the inside. Rock those fashion forward clothes, rock that smile and that new born confidence that has been hiding and most of all rock your sleeve! You all inspire me to keep fighting the good fight.
  20. ***Dances around the room**** Congratulations Pasquini! You rock my friend! Risin' up, back on the street Did my time, took my chances Went the distance Now I'm back on my feet Just a man and his will to survive So many times, it happens too fast You trade your passion for glory Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past You must fight just to keep them alive It's the eye of the tiger It's the thrill of the fight Risin' up to the challenge Of our rival And the last known survivor Stalks his prey in the night And he's watching us all with the Eye of the tiger Face to face, out in the heat Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry They stack the odds Still we take to the street For the kill with the skill to survive It's the eye of the tiger It's the thrill of the fight Risin' up to the challenge Of our rival And the last known survivor Stalks his prey in the night And he's watching us all with the Eye of the tiger Risin' up straight to the top Had the guts, got the glory Went the distance Now I'm not gonna stop Just a man and his will to survive It's the eye of the tiger It's the thrill of the fight Risin' up to the challenge Of our rival And the last known survivor Stalks his prey in the night And he's watching us all with the Eye of the tiger
