Three Month Anniversary of our surgeries and counting

Today is the third one month "anniversary" of t's and my gastric by-pass surgeries March 23. I awakened to a weigh in of 219.5 pounds. This is only one and a half pounds down from my 221 pound weight yesterday. Sometimes I get this sudden significant weight loss event phenomenon just as sometimes I get frozen at a weight for four or five days, or even regain some weight. The significance of this development, more than my being 81.5 pounds less than when I started, is that I am now into the "two hundred teens" in my weight, which does seem pretty wild having exceeded 300 pounds three months ago. When I lose another twenty pounds my weight will be in the one hundred pound plus range:) This really is beginning to seem like progress.

My t is down 59 and my swan 14. We are 154.5 pounds down combining our entire family's weight loss.

Thank you all again for your interest, kind words and thoughts, and support.


Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined.

grins, believe me T, anything that THESE hands 'created' would be laughable; the kindest one could say about my ability to sew, knit etc is ummm, selkie is a wee bit craftily-challengd LOL

I was curious as height and weight tell more of a picture than just one or the other. I'm in awe at the weight loss and I guess I'm wondring how much further? It seems like an AWFUL lot of poundage LOL - I mean, at some point, it has to stop?

I'm a fretter LOL -
