    Here is my before pics and a few afters. The second photo was taken on Sept. 9 and I was about 225 lbs. The first photo was Exactly 7 months to the day of surgery (new years eve) and I have lost 109 lbs total so far and made it into the Onederland. The journey remains challenging but every day is a new day to do things the right way and I take it one day at a time. I'm thankful for the opportunity to have a new lease and outlook on life! on Sent from my LG-TP450 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Down 62 lbs

    One thing you might try is measuring too. I went in for a six month research appt. and they did measurements. I was surprised to learn I've lost a total of 54 inches from all over. My mid-section was one of the highest with over 20 inches lost in that area alone! Keep at it and congrats on your journey thus far! Sent from my LG-TP450 using BariatricPal mobile app

  12. I can't believe I'm typing this! I'm so close and it doesn't feel out of reach. Sure, it might take me a few more months to get there but I don't mind. I'm thrilled with my progress. At 14 weeks out I've lost 78 pounds. Keep it up to those just starting the journey. Its not always easy but it is worth it! Sent from my LG-TP450 using BariatricPal mobile app
  13. Hi Sherry - its a running app that trains you to run a 5k in 9 weeks. Formally from Couch 2 5K. [emoji3] you start running at minute intervals and then increase your running each week. Sent from my LG-TP450 using BariatricPal mobile app

  17. It ebbs and flows - some days you're down and some up and sometimes nothing at akl. It happens to all of us. Consider your body is changing at the deepest cellular level and give it time to catch up. It will! Sent from my LG-TP450 using BariatricPal mobile app

  21. Today I hit 95 lbs. on the scale. Almost to 6 month mark. I notice I do get cold quickly now. I've also started the shedding hair process, but I have a ton of hair so its not noticeable right now. Sent from my LG-TP450 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Surgery and Working

    I planned 4 weeks, but took three weeks. Could have gone back after two. Its important to take the time you need so plan for more but if you can go back early - then do that. Its hard to know how your body will react. I was active as soon as I came home from the hospital, but would fatigue throughout the day. Sent from my LG-TP450 using BariatricPal mobile app

    New NSV's

    Fitting into hubby's jeans, hiking Tahquamenon Falls, overall health and wellness! Today we celebrated our 13th anniversary with a two mile hike to an international dark sky park (in the dark)! We could see the Milky Way belt, comets and satellites! The park lit the trail with tea lights so you could find your way! It was so cool! Sent from my LG-TP450 using BariatricPal mobile app
