    Wow!! You look awesome! I love how happy you seem now. Way to go!!
  2. Gorgeous!! I love it and you look amazing!!
  3. Congratulations! You look great and that dress is beautiful on you!! I definitely agree - get a pair of tights and rock it this holiday season!
  4. @Jen581791 That is definitely an outfit I would never have worn before my surgery! It felt so good to wear it and actually feel like I looked good in it. @CheeringCJ Thank you! You are looking awesome too! Congratulations!
  5. Hi everyone! I know I've been MIA lately, but work has been crazy. I started in a new position working with the Communications Director and we pretty much stay busy constantly, but I am really enjoying it. I was looking through the pictures on my phone last night and I came across this picture of me dresses as a scarecrow from Halloween 2016. I can't believe the difference!! This year a group of my girlfriends and I dressed up as 80's workout girls and hit the town. They are both skinny minis and it was nice to not feel like the big girl. I don't think I every really realized just how big I was until I sit back and look at old pictures. I am so thankful I have gone through this journey. It has helped so much with my self esteem and confidence. Halloween 2016 Halloween 2018
  6. Congratulations!! You look fantastic and I love that dress!!!
  7. Excuse the mess and the look on my face lol, but this was yesterday's outfit. I'm in love with it. Today marks one year since my surgery! I can't believe the progress I have had so far. I started out in a size 22 and I am now down to a size 8/10 and medium!! Thank you all for your support through this journey!!
  8. @CheeringCJ You look amazing! And I LOVE that outfit! Super cute!!!
  9. Tomorrow is your big day!! Congratulations and welcome to the club!!
  10. Congratulations! That's awesome! I know how excited you are. I didn't believe the scale either when I hit onederland. Then again I still don't believe it. lol
  11. Way to go!! That's awesome!!
  12. Thank you everyone for your kind words!! It feels amazing to have come this far. I can't wait to see what the future holds for me. @CheeringCJ Between work and going back to school, I feel like I am never on here! I need to make sure I check in more often. This board has been a huge support system! You are doing awesome by the way! Keep it up! @cinwa @Jen581791 Great idea about getting it tailored! I loved this dress. My grandma has been teaching me to sew. I'll have to get her to look at it. @Readytobeme I wore my first bikini back in April when I went on a cruise. They were high waisted of course but I felt so good in it! My tummy got a little sunburnt though since it's never seen the light of day lol
  13. I have officially lost 100 pounds!! I still can't believe it. To be honest, I don't think I realized just how big I was until this weekend when I put on this dress. This is the dress I wore last June to my sister's bridal shower (the 1st picture is from a year ago). The next two pictures are from yesterday. I was shocked to say the least. Having this surgery was the best decision I could have ever made!
  14. I'm going to say what everyone else is saying - no way are you 40!!! Honestly, I thought you were in your early to mid-twenties when I saw these pictures. You look amazing!
  15. You look great and I love the pixie cut! I wish I had the courage to go that short, but I'm scared. lol I'm so jealous of you being in Italy. That's somewhere I have always wanted to visit. Have fun!!
