Thanks, Kathy! If you knew how long it took, and how many bras it took to prop up my sagging breasts and get that cleavage, you'd laugh! Boy, I'm going to need some major plastic surgery!

Our stats are pretty close, so I will tell you it CAN be done.

I know why I have slowed down, and have made steps to change the lazy, cocky habits I have picked up. ZUMBA has been my friend through most of this. I swear I sweat off a few inches every class.

Good luck to you

Wow' date=' tempus fugit! A year ago today, I went into surgery weighing 284 lbs. Today, I weigh 195 lbs for total of 89 Lbs lost...SO FAR. My original goal was 140 pounds. While I am still headed in that direction, well see what the future brings. Wile I am very happy with my weightloss to date, I thought I would be further along. Oh, I'm not ungrateful, just anxious. I know that I have made some food choices that I shouldn't have, but I try to shake it off, and stay on task. Some days are better than others. I'm still forcing myself to drink lots of Water. I can say I have gotten much better!

Along with the weightloss, I have gone from wearing a size 24 to a size 14. One day I just stared at a dress in my closet, amazed that it was really mine...in that size! I actually tried on a dress in a size 12, and it fit. Wow. A few other victories....

I CAN NOW:

-shop off the rack, on the main level, not downstairs...behind housewares

-cross my legs without cutting off my circulation

-share a seat on my commuter train without fear of spilling over the center

-run up stairs without gasping for air

-Go shopping with a friend

-tuck my shirt in

-wrap a bath towel around my body

-WEAR LILLY PULITZER....HOORAY!

-sit on furniture without fear of crashing to the floor

***drumroll, please*** I WEIGH LESS THAN MY HUSBAND!!!!!!!!!!

here are a few photos to show my progress thus far. I can't wait to come back in a few months to share my goal photos.

Thank you

Darlene
