Update with Pics

It's been just over 11 weeks since I had surgery.  It feels as if it's slow going, but I know that it really isn't.  As of today I've lost a total of 71 lbs with 50 more to go.

It is a bit weird adjusting to the changes I see in my body.  As a fat person you grow accustomed to how your body looks, you might not like it, but it's what you're used to.  As you lose weight you see how much damage you've done to your body.  The saggy skin that will never tighten up, the stretch marks, scars, and flab.  An all new home to live in.  Not as comfortable mentally as the old homestead.  Kind of like moving to a new city where you don't know anyone and arent' quite sure how to fit in.  The old might not have been perfect, but you knew all about it, ya know?

Physically I feel so much better.  Of course there is need for improvement, and now that I'm recovered from pneumonia I have the energy to exercise.  I've been out shoveling snow for a couple hours at a time the last few days.

Take a look and see for yourself....just be kind :)

OH my goodness!!!!!!! You look INCREDIBLE!!!

Sure the changes are strange, but you'll settle in and get comfy in your new body, just like you were in your old. And you'll feel so much better inside and out!

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO proud of you! You're such an inspiration :)

Awesome Col! This was not slow if you think of how long it took to put on the weight. Though, we know how to put on 10# quickly taking it off never seems to go as quickly. You're looking great! Keep it up? Been horseback riding yet? xoxo
