I made it to 80

I weighed in before my just over .5 cc unfill yesterday and I hit 80 lbs gone. That is soooo exciting. I am 2 lbs away from being in my teens again. Hmmm When was I last there. I do not even have a clue.. I have come a long way and have had such a great journey. Lots of learning, challenges but also a lot of goals met, and happy periods. I cannot wait to lose 21 more lbs. Well I guess 22 cause I so want to get to 199. LOl..

So below is a picture of me a couple months before surgery. This is the day I approached my family about having this surgery. This was my grandma's funeral. Such a sad day but also a day of honesty for me. My choice to pursue this awesome journey I have been on for over a year now. So below at around 300 lbs and sooo unhealthy.

Me yesterday down to 221 lbs. Happy and healthy. My hubby actually spoiled and let me buy a bunch of new clothes. I am wearing old navy size 16 skinny jeans. LOL. SKinny jeans. lol... Also a new lululemon purple jacket. I even got a dress and a mid length trench coat. Pictures to follow.
Hmm band news I am doing sooo great right now. So nice to not get sick after everything you eat or drink.. Cannot wait to get back to eating healthy.

Hope you are all doing well and thanks for all the comments of concern. I am doing sooo much better. My surgeon fixed me right up..

PS my hubby spoiled me a got be a bodybugg. I am loving it up... So goodnight all..
