142 pounds in 11 months!

i am thrilled, happy, healthier but most of all blessed! blessed in so many ways, but since this blog is about my weight loss surgery - the blessing i am referring to here is that God allowed me to have this surgery.  the last 4 weeks have been great - our family went to dallas texas for a weekend and wow ~ to fly on a plane and not feel like you are hanging over on both sides of your seat and to have around an extra 12 inches on the seatbelt - and to have energy to spare, and to sit in a seat at a sports game and fit!!!  and to go shopping for ME at regular clothing stores like banana republic and j.crew and find clothing that fits!!  to put on a swimming suit and get in the hot tub in the hotel rather than sitting on the side watching others!!!  i give God all the thanks and all the glory!
