It has been 5 and 1/2 weeks since my last update post. In that time I have lost 19 more pounds for a total of 87 pounds lost and only 48 pounds to go! I feel absolutely wonderful. Believe it or not I feel 24 years old! I have gone from a size 22 to a size 14, and am now the same weight as when I got married. Every pound from here on out is new ground for the first time in five years!
Here are my face shots. Before my surgery and now……My nose just keeps getting longer. Oh and look for the fist time in five years my smile is wider than my cheeks on either side of it!
Here are my body shots. Before and after…. sorry that the after is smaller they are the same distance and everything I just cropped it too small since there is less of me… lol
This next pic has no before to compare it to. Sorry Ryan was just taking pictures and this is one of the posses he wanted. When he saw how it turned out he made me put it up. So this is me from the side now!
So there you have it! I am four and 1/2 months out from the surgery and more than 65% to my goal though of course the last pounds go much slower. I have to wait until the end of the year to try to get pregnant though to make sure I am healthy enough. So I have just under 7 months until we can start trying to have a baby.
Just because I know someone will ask…. yes I still have 48 pounds to lose and yes that’s right. Right now in a size 14 I still weigh 198 pounds. The doctors want me down to 140 which is a little ridiculous so my goal weight is 150. I keep getting people who think I have an eating disorder when I tell them there are still 48 to lose. Not so I promise.
Anyway. Not much going on around here today. We are just working on the computers and I’m working on blankets for the baby showers I have coming up. I really should put up some pictures of those.
Song of the day? I put back up my classical… I missed it a little and I can’t seem to get any of the music sites on xanga to work for me. That and Right Said Fred’s I’m too Sexy seemed a little to bold…. lol
Talk to you all soon.
