WoW Its been a while! I can't believe its been 4 months since my surgery! I remember when I would frequent this page I would come on twenty times a day! I would always wonder why people who are far from surgery date never long on, and BAM i did the same thing! Guess I have been busy living! If any of your remember my post ( i think you can find it in my profile?) I was about 517 lbs last january. Today I weighed myself at 385! A few weeks ago when I was at the critical 399 I nearly fainted. I never thought I would see a 3 again, now I am excited thinking about the day I see a 2! At the surgery I was at about 461 so its been a total of about 76 lbs. Every day gets easier and easier and for anyone even remotely thinking about this surgery, DO IT ! Yes there are times I wish I could "throw down" like I used to but those days long gone.

I remember posting about my trip to disney, and as a side note I was able to go on the haunted mansion without stopping the ride! For anyone who was ever been on it when it played the " the spirits are acting up and the ride will resume soon yada yada" bit, thats when a fat guy like me got on and the bar didnt go down, so it stops the ride! I was shocked when i just sailed past the workers and the ride kept going!

I promised myself I would buy a car at 100 lost, and I did just that, a brand new jeep arctic edition. I am able to go much harder on the treadmill now, and simple things, like tying shoes, to just plain walking to the car are so much easier. I find myself zipping everywhere in almost a light jog. I am guessing its because I am used to lugging around and extra 140+ lbs on me?

Anyhow, I will leave this post just updating all the people who posted last time on my out of surgery post that I am doing fantastic!

I will post some before and after, for new years.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
