    150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
    I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

    Well January finally did it. Started the month and ended the month at the exact same weight.
    First time my weight journal has had a Zero written in it.
    Feb 1 is the 18 month mark and it does feel like the end of one journey and the start of another.
    Do not see the surgeon again till August but he was happy at 175 so i do not see any issues there.

    Oh, man, I was at work sitting at my desk, and suddenly found that I was crossing my legs!  I mean, not completely knee-over-knee, but it's a total Non-Scale Victory for me - I've never really been able to cross my legs!

    This is completely unreal but two days in a row now I have seen less than 200 pounds on the scale for the first time in over 15 years. I am a pound away from my first goal of 199 at 13.5 months post op. Time to set a new goal for the New Year!

    Well today is a New Year and a New Me! I had a goal to lose 50 pounds by the end of the year and i woke up this morning at 51 pounds lost even! I am super excited. I am almost 8 weeks post op and will be 2 months post op in 7 days. I am excited to start 2019 at 252.6. I started this journey with a high weight of 340. When I decided this go around to get the surgery done, I was at 303.6 and day of surgery 284.2. Today just over 7 weeks later I am at 252.6. Over 30 pounds from the date of Surgery and 51 since i started the Pre Op diet. I am excited to see where 2019 is going to take me and where i end out the year! 2019 is my year, and this is the very first time in my 49 years of life that i can say something is mine and I am working on me for the new year!

    The last time I bought something from Express, the sales clerk said "Here is your gift receipt" because clearly I couldn't fit into their clothes. (And no, I didn't ask for one.)
    Today, I bought 2 shirts in a size large and got a "This color is going to look amazing on you."

    Yesterday my doctor scale read lower than my home scale and I was fully clothed. Usually my home scale is lower. I stepped in both within minutes of each other to try to tell if I could trust my home scale. Nope.

    Ok , you can all have a laugh at my expense today.
    As a kid i never cared for PB&J i would eat one if it was all that was available but i always preferred a tuna sandwich.
    The other day my daughter comes over with an All Natural Peanut Butter and as we are talking in the kitchen she opens this jar up and the smell just about knocked me over. It was amazing. So i got a spoon and tried it straight, no jellies for me anymore, I was blown away with the amazing taste. Now i don't know if this a case of taste buds changing or just good Peanut Butter but that was a great treat. So i now have a jar in my kitchen and while i only eat a spoonful of it on any given day i am still amazed at how great it tastes.
    Happy Holidays, I hope you are all doing great over this holiday period.
