Having quite the time...

by Kunkko on 10-11-2014 at 02:30 AM
I have a hard time throwing some things away. This weight I am down is not one of those things. Being nearly 100 pounds down in 4 months, nothing fits anymore. I went and dug out some of my clothes from "back in the day", I like to use the excuse that it is close to Halloween and I am looking for costumes...anyway, I have gone from "I can't wear these 46" waist jeans to being able to wear some of my old 38" pants.

2 weeks out FEELING GOOD!

Things have been crazy and not able to do much on my own, but getting much better. Since surgery I got rid of 20 pounds for a total now of 82 pounds total since mid May!

It's about 3 months now, my how time has flown by, that I started my journey. Surgery is in just a few days. I finally started informing a few friends and family what was going on. For the most part all have been supportive. All helpers for post op are set. My St. Bernard is going off to a babysitter...after a week, she isn't going to recognize me! LOL...Pre-op weight loss so far is a crazy 47 pounds...80ish to go! LIver reduction diet is going well, only a couple days that I was craving anything,
