It has taken a while but I am now one pound from goal. I just wanted to update to let you all know I have not fallen off the face of the earth! The last pounds are truly the hardest to get off. That is so true! However finally, here I am, 1 lb from goal and so excited. I may see if I can lose a few more pounds beyond goal. I will try anyway. However, just to get to goal will be very exciting. I did this in the midst of my daughters wedding and changing jobs so that is an even bigger feat. I will add a picture of me taken the day of my daughters wedding. I was about two pounds heavier than I am now but not a noticable difference. I will say this; I am working very hard to get to goal. I have to watch everything I put in my mouth. This surgery is not an ‘easy fix’. You still have to work very hard and watch everything you eat. The surgery is a tool. I am still the one doing all the work. Next post and pics will be at goal!
