One Year Bandiversary!

My one year bandiversary was on Saturday! In the past year since my surgery I have managed to lose about 125 pounds and drop 4-5 pant sizes and about 3 top sizes. My feet have also shrunk about a size or so.

I can do a lot more than I used to be able to do. I am definitely more comfortable in my skin (well, my loose skin).  I have batwings like nobody's business now. I seriously look like I could take off and fly! Luckily my belly doesn't look too bad. The girls are a little lower nowadays too. Oh well, I'm better off than I was. Perhaps someday I will get some work done.

Here are my one year pictures-





I had a check up with my surgeon the other day too. I did much better this past month, losing 7 pounds rather than 2 pounds the month before. He was very pleased with my progress. He mentioned that one year ago he wrote my target weight as 219. That's what I weighed in at his office that day (his scale shows a good 2-3 pounds more than mine). I asked him if that's what he thought I would lose in a year and he said that he thought that was the weight I was going to stay at (the best I could do). And he was very impressed that I was able to reach that weight in one year.

In other news... I have a neck! Look at it! You can see muscles and things! It's amazing. I have never had that before!
