And she is...drumroll, please...93 pounds lighter than she was! Ninety-three pounds! Yay! I lost five pounds before I had the surgery, so "technically" I've lost 88 pounds since August 5, 2011. Six months! I had a great appointment today--the PA is as impressed with my progress as I am, and the amazing news? She said that most people continue to lose for 18 months! Of course, I won't continue to lose at the rate I'm losing now, but still!!
On the way home from Raleigh, I stopped at Harris-Teeter to pick up a couple more of those Healthy Choice entrees and to see one of my former students. She was busy at the customer service desk, so I waited a minute. She looked up and jumped, saying I startled her. When I asked why, she said, "Because you don't even look like yourself!"
And she's right. I don't look like "myself". At least not the self I've lived with for the past 25-30 years! This woman in the mirror? I don't even recognize her, but I do like her looks!
And yes...as the photo shows, I'm ridiculously happy!! Have a fabulous Friday, everyone! Long day for me--school then basketball--last home game of the year!
