In another 7.5lbs my life is going to become a lot more interesting.
Here is a picture of me from one year ago- December 2010- at 271lbs:
And here I am 8 months later in August of 2011 at 319lbs:
And a photo of me now in December 2011:
In 2010 I lost 50lbs. I went from 321lbs to 271lbs in twelve months. But then over an 8 month period I gained all but two pounds back. That huge failure played a major role in my decision to have weight loss surgery.
I have nearly made up that loss and in another 7.5lbs I will be back at 271. The weight that I have lost since surgery has been great, but I think it will be a heck of a lot more exciting once I break through that old barrier.
Since October 1st, I have lost a total of 40.5lbs. Eleven pounds of that was prior to surgery and then since surgery on the 19th of October I have lost another 29.5lbs. I am hoping to hit 50 by the new year!
