The Six Month Mark Reached

I took time out this morning to make one of my 5.12 mile walks. It struck me that when I returned home at 11:00 AM it was just about exactly 6 months to the minute since they wheeled me out of the surgery having performed my Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass March 23, 2009. I weighed myself upon my return from my walk today, and had reached 182 pounds for the first time. I have now lost 119 pounds since beginning this process and lost 18 inches off my waist.

I am sure we will post more tonight, and if t and I can get our schedules together with swan (our photographer), manage to get one of our traditional one month milestone pictures up here to document our progress as we pass through this, but I wanted to commemorate the one half year point with this comment.

As always the support of everyone who has read and commented her has been a huge help to t and I both. Thank you so much to all of you.

All the best,


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