I just had my 6 month check up with my surgeon last week. I am officially 89lbs less then I was when I went in for my barbaric surgery on Sept 2, 2014. I have 11 more lbs before I hit that wonderful 100lb down mark.
I have not gone cloths shopping yet. I refuse to do so until I hit that 100 lb mark. All of my cloths are way way big on me, but I do not care. Honestly, I'm not even sure what size I am in now. I suppose I will have to try things on now before I actually do [purchase them, when I do go.
I have to say all of my life I was searching for that "magic pill" to loose weight, until I got the opportunity to get this surgery and even though I did have to go into hock ($4000) to make this happen, I am so, unbelievably happy that I did this for myself. I think I was at the point were I would have died from complications of diabetes or a stroke.
Today I feel great, I can work in my yard without feeling like I am having a heart attack. I can go for 2 mile walks without loosing my breath. I'm not where I want to be just yet but I am getting there. I have also noticed recently that I'm not always hungry like I used to be all of the time. Which is good and helps a lot.
Spring has finally sprung in the great northeast and I feel good, like I have not felt in many years. I am planning on doing many improvements around my house this year because I finally can.
