This time last year...

Recommended Posts

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!

Awesome job at taking the weight off. Congratulations on being 100 pounds down!!!

I think that I am/was alot like you. I never realized how big I actually was/am. I really have never been embarrassed in a swim suit at the pool, etc. like many others here describe. I have always been a confident person and felt like it is what it is.

Now that I am losing the weight, I am realizing just how big that I am. Can't wait to get where you are :)

ETA- I also always wear modest swim suits. I am not one to show much skin. Didn't want you guys to get the wrong impression lol

Wow! Congrats on an amazing milestone! :D 

You look great. I hope you’re really proud of yourself.

To piggy-back on @cinwa‘s post, I think you should have someone tailor something for you out of that dress. It’s pretty fabric, and would be a meaningful piece of clothing. Sort of tube-shaped things, as dresses are, often make good candidates for major tailoring overhauls.

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
