Four Week Doctor-Self Update

Okay! Drum roll please!!!   I have lost 20 pounds since surgery, bringing my total weight lost since December 2013 at 70 pounds!!! Also note-worthy is the fact that I have lost 24 inches since September 7, 2014. My restrictions have been lifted and my pre-diabetes is GONE!!!

I am really feeling great and I am truly thankful to my doctor and his staff. Also, I am thankful for friends and family who constantly follow my progress, pray for me, and have loved me through all of my life transitions. 

Quick family update:

Lee is doing well.
Chris is doing well.
Jamie is doing well.
Kobi is doing well.

Geo is finally home with us and he brought Becca.

Our great snow season is not too far off. (Yes, I am STILL happy about that!!)

How I Am Doing

My weight loss journey

Well, it has been a few months since I have posted. (No surprise there!) Here is an update on how I am doing in my new journey:

I was approved for surgery and had gastric bypass on September 22, 2014. When I got to the hospital that day, I was down to 280. Now, I know a lot of people would scream in horror at telling weight amounts or stories, but I like to be totally honest. Plus, for those who may read this--DON"T BE AFRAID of numbers! It tells the true story of where you came from and where you are and where you are going. I had my two week post-op appointment with my doctor yesterday and I had lost another ten pounds since surgery. WAY TO GO ME!!!!! I am down

                                                       60 lbs !!!!!!

I am so proud of myself and I feel great! I know I have a LONG way to go, but I am finally off the liquid and on to the pureed foods so it should get interesting now. 

Quick Family Update:

-Other than some minor sinus issues, Lee has been doing extremely well too. We are really loving it still here in Pennsylvania. 
-Chris is getting more involved with Boy Scouts.
-Jamie was signed up for Girl Scouts last week.
-Kobi is...well...still Kobi and we love him.
---Biggest news flash:  Geoffry and Becca are getting married and moving up here with us. That will make another change for our new 2015 year.
