8 weeks....

I can't believe it has already almost been two months since my surgery. So much has changed with my body. I'm feeling so much better, more energetic everyday and so thankful that I was given this option and able to take it. I'm eating healthier than I ever have and I do have my slip ups. Not even gonna lie about that. Yesterday I dove head first into a bag of cool ranch doritos....lol...not my proudest moment, but hey, it was the first chip I'd had in 8 weeks...

My tummy is healed! I can lay on my stomach with no pain. Mother nature isn't being very good to me today, so I'm going to wait another week to do my measurements (thanks to all the bloating), but I did get on the scale! Against my better judgement, but it read great! lol

SW: 281.8 lbs.
CW: 242.0 lbs.

Total lost: 39.8 lbs

^^^^^^^ that's awesome! I lost 4 lbs this week!

As most of you probably saw, I had a great weekend! I got to hang out with one of my closest friends on Saturday! We went and saw "Friends with Benefits". It was HILARIOUS! We had a very nice lunch and we even went shopping. When I started this adventure I was wearing a size 24. Two weeks after my surgery, I was back in my 22's and now I'm in my 18's and 20's!!!!! HOLY SMOKES! And I bought a super cute top and it's a 14-16! I can't believe how quickly the weight is coming off....it's crazy! And I'm so thankful for it. And I'm pretty sure my feet and knees are thankful too....lol
