One whole year under my belt!!!

I can honestly say I have not idea where the last year has gone!!!!  Seems like just yesterday I was going through all my pre-op appts and getting all that done.  I can not believe that today marks my 1 year "banderversary"!!!!  I have been living with this band for the past year and will say until I am blue in the face that this was the BEST decision I have ever made!

Over the past few months my weight loss has slowed but as of this morning I am down 92 lbs since day of surgery.  When I started this journey I wore size 2XL tops and size 24 pants, I now wear a size 10 (almost an 8) pants and small shirt!!!  I still have 39 more lbs to go and plan on getting my butt in gear to drop that last bit as quick as possible. 

One year ago I could not have imagined getting to this point.  Has it all be easy.............. NO! But it has all been worth it!!!  I gladly share my experience with anyone who asks so please feel free to message me with any questions!

The compliments from friends and family never get old, in fact they are what motivates me to keep on track.  I love the surprised look on my patients faces when they realize its me!  For my next blog I am going to come up with a list of all the positive things that have changed over this past year :-)
