Not a great photo, but it's the only one I have that's current. As the family photo taker, I have lots of everyone else and not many of me.
Some of the details:
Start weight 263 lbs Current weight: 174 Goal weight:150
Start jean size: 20 Current: a loose 12 from the Gap
Bra size: 42 D Current size 38 B ( or 38 extra long without a bra). I'm actually a 36, but I don't like how the excess skin dribbles over my bra in the back. You know what I mean- it's back skin vs back fat.
My weight loss has remained flat and I am OK with that for now. I hit my one year out mark on June 25th at 174 pounds! I still need to hit my goal weight of 150, which I will work on upon my return from Paris next month. I'm due for my labs- I'll get that done next week.
I finally understand how to maintain my weight, and now I have to do what "normal" people do to keep their weight down. Yes you know, that horrid word, E X E R C I S E. I'm not sure why I am so hesitant- I know I have the physical strength. It must be the mental mind screw- I'm worried I won't be able to do it??
Food- I have a pretty healthy relationship with it. I have decided to do one protein shake each day which gives me 25 grams of protein, some calcium and fruit with a dose of Benefiber to keep things working. I don't miss any food- I would like to have a beer once in a while, but then I realize it's really not worth it. My priority is to get protein in. My girl Shelley at The World According to Eggface has kept me satisfied with some of the best food recipes for WLS people!
I feel good!
