  1. 18 months out 130lb gone!

    Thank you everyone.  Most of the time I take the compliments with downcast eyes.  I am still not used to the attention (I am getting better).  Something about it coming from all of you feels better and I am proud you guys like my transfomation.  Maybe because we all truly understand each other's journies. 
  2. 13 months out and 10 lbs to goal

    Amazing stuff!  The team at Nortwestern is simply the best!  You look fantastic and love the fleet feet shout out!

    God how I used to hate having my pic taken....lol.  This is certainly a reminder of why it wasn't something I looked forward to having done.  I am much more likely to sit and smile for the camera now.  Thank god for my life back!

      It's this really cool place in Chicago. They have a bar for drinks, but they also "server" up high end designer jeans while you are there. We went for a team event and got 200 to spend (which only bought one pair, but still......). They help you custom fit the right jeans for you. My body almost looks like it did back before weight gain and kids. They suck my thighs and lift my @*# and OHMERGAW.....I'm in love!

    Congrats to you!  I know all about the secret goal!  My goal reads 165 cus its nicely inside the BMI range for my height.  But......I really want to be at about 150.  LOL  3lbs till the 100's so we shall see where I end up.
  10. Oh 100's.....where are you? Why are you hiding from me? Three more lbs and I find you! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  11. Oh 100's.....where are you? Why are you hiding from me? Three more lbs and I find you! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  12. My body is toying with me! I finally got to 205 and now it's period time so of course I shot back up 2 lbs. I just want to see that "1" in front of the number on the scale so damn bad! Stupid menstrual cycle.

  13. My pouch does NOT like chicken!

    I will be 10 months out on Feb. 11 and I still really can't do chicken well. My stomach feels icky nearly everytime i eat it. Dry or moist doesn't seem to make any difference so far. Thankfully, my pouch absolutely LOVES steak. I eat it all the time and practically feel my tummy happy dancing. I say just keep trying it on occassion, but try other proteins that your tummy likes in the meantime.
  14. 3 months post op....feeling pretty darn good!

    I love seeing the end results! Yours are going to be great, I can just tell.
  15. 13 Months later.

    You look good and perfectly healthy to me! Enjoy that cute new little body! You earned it.
