Oh Happy Day!!





Well....today is EXACTLY 2 months since my surgery...Had it on June 6th and since then, I've lost 42 lbs. That's INSANE! I weighed in this morning and I had hit the 230's range. I had a flashback to two years ago....We were driving to Canyon and someone had asked how much weight I had lost and I told them I had just found out I had hit 239lbs. That took me over 8 months. 8 months of starving, working out at least 3 hours a day and being absolutely miserable. I will NEVER regret this surgery. Even on days I crave chips and a dr pepper, I will not regret my decision. :)


We did measurements this morning since my bloating is gone. And holy smokes!!! I'm so happy right now :)

Since my last measurements I've lost:
1/2" in my upper arms
1" in my chest
1 3/4" in my waist
4 3/4" in my hips!!!!
1 1/4" in my thighs :)
3/4" in my calves
1/4" in my neck

Since my surgery, I've gone from a size 24 to 18!!
I've gone from a 22/24 size shirt to a 14/16!!

This had kind of made my day! :)

If this surgery is something you've been thinking about, I say go for it! Call your insurance and see what steps you need to take to change your life. I regret that I waited til I was 28 to do this.
