Time flies.

I can’t believe I had weight loss surgery 15 months ago.  I’m now down to 228 lbs, which brings me to 122 lbs lost. 181 more words


3 months since surgery

I am down 76.4 lbs. since surgery.  I am having a very hard time seeing my weight loss at times. I see it in my clothes and under my chin, but in other places I really can’t see it. 241 more words

Medication and Pre Surgery Prep

So today the official count down has begun.

I was supposed to meet with the dietitian today but unfortunately she was unwell.

The Decision
