It has been a year. It has been a WHOLE YEAR!! I have gone through a massive transformation in the 365 days...and I am not done yet! I am down officially 75 lbs since the beginning of my journey. I had some slip-ups along the way but that was completely expected. Why? Because I am human and not perfect. I do not regret making the decision I did. Not one little bit. I did NOT take the easy way out....I changed my entire way of living to become a healthier me and I am so happy with the new me!! I am healthier both physically and mentally. I did not like myself before I had surgery. Sure I put up a good front and of course I loved myself, but I didn't like the physical being I was. My health is wonderful, my attitude, while it was always good, is even better, and my relationship with my husband has even been affected in a positive way since I started my journey. We do more together, we go out more and our marriage is that much stronger! You never realize how being unhappy with yourself affects those around you. I have a couple of pictures posted to show the physical difference. Thank you everyone for all of the support, kind words and inspiration you have provided to me the past year. Thank you to my family for helping me with my journey. Thank you to my friends for being there for me. Here is to the next year and me hitting my ultimate goal weight of 170!!
