My 101 Pound Year ....

Hi friends!!!! Welcome to 2014 I hope this year is an awesome year for us all! 2013 certainly was a very emotional and crazy year for me that is for sure! Lots of good things and a few bad things sprinkled through out the year I guess a little something to keep me grounded and remind me how fragile life truly is! This morning I woke up and did my weigh in and I am so happy to report to my awesome friends and family who read my blog that I left 101 pounds of me way back in 2013! I am super happy and excited about that! I am thankful that I decided to have the RNY Gastric Bypass it was the best choice I have made for myself in a very long time I have not one regret on my decision I have never been able to lose much on my own due to my lovely PCOS! In March 2013 I started out on this task to get my approval for my surgery weighing 325 pounds by the day I had my surgery on August 19th I was down to 288 I sit here right now blogging away to y'all at 224 pounds and I have not be this size in 20 YEARS!!!!!!!! It is unreal to me! Today I updated my pictures did a comparison picture which you can see right here at the top of my blog and it's still unreal to me! I am definitely happy with the changes, and I'm super excited about what 2014 holds for me! I hope by this time next year I'll be blogging and telling you all that I made my final goal which is roughly 75 pounds away seems doable knowing that I have lost 101 already! My next small goal is to shed 25 more pounds and make it to ONEderland...somewhere I haven't been in an extremely long time! But I know it'll be here sooner than I think and I can't wait! Next week I will be starting to go to the gym on base excited about that intimidated a bit too but hey one foot in front of the other ;-) I'd rather go to a gym in town but can't afford those monthly fees. Honestly loved the YMCA when I had a membership there but really can't afford the family membership package but hey that's life, can't have it all where would you put it? :-)  I have to admit something...I am proud of myself and that's not something I normally say but I have a tremendous amount of pride in myself these days, I feel better about me, happier and more confident though I have  a ways to go. In more weight loss news I have my check up with my surgeon on Friday at 10AM more blood work yay me praying that my protein and iron levels are back up and that nothing else is going on or wrong! My energy level has picked up some here lately with I am totally stoked about that been getting stuff done around here like a mad woman took today off though but tomorrow it's back to it!  Want to finish cleaning and organizing before my classes start back on January 13th!! Well y'all that is about all I have for you for tonight! I'll catch up with y'all later! Good night and God Bless! <3 Me
