about september

today is the last day of september and this is the first month where i have experienced stalls in my weight loss.  i don't want to state that i am in a pattern of slower weight loss already because i am just now in my 5th month.  i have been able to count on losing at least 10 pounds each month so far and in september i lost 8 pounds.  i REALLY was hoping to count on a monthly loss of 10-12 pounds for the first full year after surgery.  enough complaining - my weight loss to date is 79 pounds!

feeling great!

i have no idea if anyone reads my blog - but if there IS anyone reading who is contemplating weight loss surgery i say GO FOR IT!!! i am so glad that i did this!  this coming wednesday, sept 22nd will have marked 5 months that i have been losing weight (began 2 weeks pre-op liquid diet) and i have lost 76.5 pounds!  WOW!  it's probably a year before i am at goal, but already i feel so much better.
