Hello everyone, I thought I would post an update on my progress with my weight loss surgery. I have lost 146 pounds (71 pounds pre-op, 75 pounds post-op), and I have 80 more to get to get to my goal weight. Here are some pics.
Here's where I started:

Melissar,

Well done you do look incredible, glad you feel that way as that's very important!

I can see the sparkle in yours eye's in the 'developing me' pictures that isnt there in the picture as you started the weight loss journey!

Love,

Thank you all for the congrats and the support!! It means a lot and it really helps on those days when I just want to say the heck with it. The surgery is a tool to help, but I still have to make the right decisions or it won't work.

*hugs*

Hi Melissa,

Funny you should post as I have been thinking about you a lot lately and wondering how you were coming along. WOW, didn't I tell you the weight comes off quickly. You look so good and if you think your confident now just imagine where you will be in another 75 lbs lost.

You keep up the good work and please post sooner so i am not left to wonder how skinny your getting.:lol::lol::lol:

Cudo's to you. After my surgery I went back and put on the same clothes that I wore in my original picture only I had to hold them up with both arms but. Kinda like holding up the jeans you used to wear in front of you and looking at the picture thinking 2 people could fit into them now.

YOU GO GIRL and post more pictures soon. Best of luck to you as you continue through the journey your on to the new you.:wink2::wink2::wink2:
