    I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

    This weekend I went shopping for clothes after yet another purge of the closet. I've gone from a 3XL shirt and 44 pants to a Large shirt and 34 pants! It still feels surreal. I'm 18 lbs from my goal weight and 4 lbs from moving from the obese category to "overweight." I'm down 70 lbs from my 10/16/17 surgery date, and 114 lbs down overall in a year.

    Today marks 1 month since my VSG. I am 37 lbs down from my initial surgeon visit on 09/11/17, and 21.4 lbs down since surgery 10/16/17. I went from a size 44 pant to a 38, and those are now getting loose. My wardrobe has all been given to goodwill since my clothes were all way too big. I feel great, getting my liquids and protein each and every day, and walking or going to the gym 5 days per week at least. The scale has slowed down the last 10 days or so, but my body is constantly changing. The scale will move. It didn't all get put on overnight, and won't come off overnight. Slower may be better for skin reasons, right? Anyhow, I'm so thankful I did this. Not only do I feel 10 times better, I sleep better, move better, look better, and the constant comments from people isn't bad either! I'm going to bust my butt this next month to see what kind of progress I can make!

    Today is my first day back at work since my surgery 10/16. I thought I had thought about everything and returning to work, meals, protein, water, etc. One major thing I didn't think about was me getting dressed for work this morning and putting on slacks that I wore pre-surgery...they looked ridiculous and were entirely too big. It was awesome and stressful at the same time. Luckily, as I rummaged through the closet I found a smaller size that I kept for some strange reason, and while still a bit baggy, they were much better. Guess I'll need to get a couple pairs of slacks tonight to get me through the next month or so, then swap those out. What an awesome feeling to get rid of clothes for being to big for a change.

    I just got the call that the lab results and EKG are back. Scheduled an appointment for tomorrow to discuss surgery dates with the nurse and verify all classes and steps have been completed. I'm hoping and praying that the day I've waited so long for will actually be a reality and I can say "I'll be starting to get my life back on XXXX date." I just have to bring my binder/test, post op vitamins and two weeks of food logs with me. Fingers crossed that something is set.
