6 month surgiversary = 7.3.06

I made it to the 6 month point. Holy Shiznit! How did I get here? Like the Judy Collins song... Who knows where the time goes? I have lost a total of 106 lbs since surgery and 118 lbs from my heaviest weight. That is equal to a person. I now weigh 274 bs! I was 392 lbs last July and I weighed 380 lbs at the time of surgery. So bizarrely amazing!

Post surgery sizes:

Pants = 24
Tops = 18 (But my new tank tops are a 14/16
Panties = 18/20 (Lane Bryant)
Bra = 42 C

Pre surgery sizes:

Pants = 32
Tops = 26/28
Panties = 26/28 (Lane Bryant)
Bra = 48 C

I feel and look like a new person. It is only going to keep getting better. I am so glad I made the choice to have this operation. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. I completely got my life back. I can do things now that I haven't done in years!! I am just so happy. I can't weight to see what happens to me during the next six months. My journey so far as been amazing & I look forward to riding it out till the end.
