It has been two months since my last update post and I have had a lot of people in my family asking for new pictures. I have also had a lot of new visitors that seem to have an interest so I thought I would update. I will also be updating my post explaining the reasons that this drastic step was required in my life sometime in the near future. Sorry for all of those that know all this info.
9 Months ago my life changed.
I had Gastric Bypass surgery on December 27th of 2004.
For health reasons.
In the intervening months I have;
Gone from 285 pounds to 163 pounds. A loss of 122 pounds.
Gone from a size 22 to a size 8.
Gone from 6 daily medications to just a handful of vitamins.
Gone from death by 30 to a long life ahead of me.
I have been given the release to attempt to get pregnant.
We have been trying to conceive again for over two months.
These are pictures of me before the surgery.
This is now.
Just two days before surgery.
The first is four days before surgery and the second is two days before.
I am happy, healthy, and so grateful for the opportunity to experience life.
