You have done awesome and you look fantastic! Congratulations on your hard work and weight loss.

Your "awesome moments" were great, thanks for sharing.

I am officially one year out today -- had my surgery 11/14. On the day of surgery, I had lost 25 pounds to get from 317 to 292, and was incredibly proud of myself.
Today I'm 181. I am 14 pounds from goal at a year out. In the last month I lost 5 so -- soon maybe ?? Definitely by 18 months if nothing else.
I did a bunch of progress shots at 6 months, figure I'd add to them today!

First pick is at my heaviest; second pic is xmas day 2016, so about a year ago; third from 6 months out and the last, of course, is today!

First pic here is about 1 week post op -- I was so proud of how much I'd lost, jeeeeeez!! Second picture is around January, I think, then march, and then today, again!
This one is painful.

I took the picture on the right the day before surgery...looking back at it now, I don't even recognize myself!

My face from my 10 year college reunion at my heaviest, and then again, today (I don't recognize myself in EITHER of these pictures, and it freaks me out just a little.
Finally, for fun, a big change -- I picked up a tennis racket again this fall. And now it's too cold to play and I'm mad, because I want to SO VERY MUCH.

I'll have to see if there are any cheap indoor courts...
Other awesome moments in my recent life:
> seatbelts fit comfortably on airplanes
> I can cross my legs to sit comfortably in any situation
> didn't have to worry AT ALL about my size when going on rollercoasters at Hersheypark
> I haven't had a clumsy fall down in months, despite an incredible amount of increased activity
> SIZE 10-12 FROM A SIZE 24, I CAN FIT IN STRAIGHT SIZES!! went shopping at H&M and other places and realized how cheap clothes can be....
> went from fattest friend in the group to...potentially....the thinnest..........???
14 more pounds to normal BMI, and that's what I really want more than anything else.

Wow, incredible! Congratulations
