June 1st, 2009

Wow a year ago today I was 275!!! I was frenzied trying to get all the pre-op appointments done. How much life has changed since then, I love it.

I am down 115 pounds, still trying to lose those final 5 pounds but the gallbladder surgery and bowel obstruction has put a kink in those plans; as my energy level returns and summer kicks into full gear I suspect it won't be much longer until I hit that goal.

I am returning to basics, I plan from this point on to count all my calories/carbs...I have been doing a lot of emotional eating due to stress from all the events that have taken place. I need to get back to the eat to live mentality and STOP grazing!!!

Oh yeah, my Mom and I did some shopping when I was home in STL last month. I bought new shorts and to my amazement most of them were size SIX!!!!!! So in less than a year I have gone from a 24 to a 6, just mind blowing!

I'm not sure what size I will be in when I reach my final goal ~ it is such a relief to know that I am finally HEALTHY, I am doing my best to stay that way.

The countdown to my 1 year anniversary is ON: 37 days left to work on those final pesky pounds and then maintaining this loss FOREVER!!!!

Love everyone!

Amy

Way to go, Amy!! I am so happy for you! I hope someday I can get this for myself, but who knows when the insurance company and I will finally be friends...ugh.
