Seven Months Post-Op, 86 Pounds Gone!

And because silly Sabrina took my pictures, I had to throw in a sassy pose for her, haha. And you get to see my cute $5 sandals from Target. And that's a size medium top from Target, too, while the "before" pic is a 3x from Lane Bryant. :( And while I'm listing sizes, there's my size 8 jeans. :)

Today's Weight: 177.3

I am growing tired of my liquid diet, haha. I am super proud that I haven't eaten any food at nighttime! (No food whatsoever since Sunday, but it's the nighttime overeating I'm trying to break myself of.)

Today I had my labs done in anticipation of my follow-up appointment with the surgeon on 8/22. I have never been so excited to have blood work done! I am so curious about my iron/ferritin levels, and my vitamin D, and how everything is doing inside me seven months after surgery.

I am just so pleased with the after-effects of the VSG surgery, with my weight loss, my overall health and the many, many non-scale improvements that this year has brought to my body and my life. I just can't say enough wonderful things about how glad I am I took the plunge.
