Soon this will get exciting.

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!

It's already exciting but I can see why you're kind of 'on hold' for really celebrating.

This next year is going to be so exciting. You're doing great. And looking great.

Looking good! It's finally almost cold enough to dig out the wonderful mitts I got from you last year. Although it keeps chinooking once a week it seems, so it's making my mittens confused! :)
