When I started my weight loss surgery journey, I hoped and prayed that I would be one of those one hundred pound losers before the end of my first year. My second hope was that I would at least get below 200 pounds – which is pretty darn close to 100 pounds lost, since I was starting at 295.
Well, we came home from FL after a week on vacation last Sunday, and as soon as I found the scale, I was on it. I am ecstatic to report that I am officially in “Onederland”! I fell below the 200 pound mark for the first time in about 15 years. I still have 3 pounds to go to get to my 100 pound loss mark, but this is so close, and in only 4 months.
I have to get in to see Dr. Nusbaum, but with all the confusion at home with the floors the paint the party the Christmas….. you get the picture – I forgot to get my blood work done. I’ll be heading to the lab Monday morning so I can reschedule with Dr. N.
While I still see fat when I look in the mirror, I know that a lot of it now is the hanging skin that will eventually have to be taken care of. My thighs look like two shar pei puppies huddled together in one big, wrinkled mass. Not pretty. Thank goodness for a bathing suit with a skirt.
