6 Months Out

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.

Peace OUT....
