One year post-op today...

Rate this Entry

One year ago today I made the lifetime decision to change my life. I couldn't be happier with my decision.
One year ago today I was at SW: 213 size 18 clothes and full of shame within myself. I am now at 113 clothing size 0/1 and couldn't be happier or healthier. I'm 5' 3/4" tall.

No longer obese, no longer have high cholesterol, or high blood pressure, etc... Healthy feels great!

Confidence... Confidence has allowed me the courage to go to college as well. I'm excited for the future! I start school January 12th. I am working on getting accepted into the nursing program at Barton Community College! I've decided to be an RN. That's my new goal!

I've lost 100 (ONE HUNDRED) lbs... Along the way my amazing husband has lost 108 (ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT) lbs!!! I'm so proud of him that I just have to show him off as well. He did not have surgery. He started at 279 and is now at 171. He has 11 more lbs to his goal weight of 160. He is 5' 6". Me, I am done and trying to maintain. I am below my goal which was 120.

I'm so proud of ALL of our accomplishments this past year. Congrats to each and every one of us that took this path to a better, healthier life! (Cannot believe it's been a year!!!)
