So today I was looking at my pictures from last summer. The one picture that got my attention the most was a family photo of me my son and husband at one of our camping trips. I remember during this photo I smiled because I knew it was going to be my last summer feeling so helpless with my weight. I cant wait to see what this summer will look like. I cant wait until summer comes and I can compare photos from last summer to this years summer. Is anyone else looking to compare photos from last summer to this coming summer?

I have a favorite picture taken 2 years ago while on vacation in Chicago. It's a picture with my sisters. I was at my heaviest of 232 lbs.. I'm going back to Chicago this summer 73 lbs. lighter. I'm not dreading having my picture taken this time with my sisters!

I'm comparing a cruise photo of me 4 months ago (a month pre-op) to now and can tell a big difference even at 25 pounds lost. I felt more confident in a bathing suit this time.

And confidence, pride and belief in yourself, and that kind of stuff is so good. Maybe this summer I won't hide from cameras and even cell phones, sure used to, even offered to be the photographer to keep from being immortalized at the size I was.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
