52 Weeks Ago...

So my official anniversary is on Saturday, but I just wanted to take a moment and point out that exactly 52 weeks ago - I was in pre-op getting ready for the biggest change my body may ever make...

I was completely at peace with my decision, excited even... and ready to embark on all that weight loss surgery could do to change my life.

I woke up sometime around 1 PM feeling pretty good actually, and with a dent in my tummy... which was sort of weird. John, My Mom and a family friend were there by my side, and that first day was really pretty easy.

The second day was a whole different story.... but you can go back to my posts from last November to read about that...

I just was on my way in this morning and realized that it was actually 52 weeks ago today that my life changed! So I felt like I needed to acknowledge it today, and on Saturday - I'll try to post some new before/after pics (even though we're still a work in progress) as well as how my measurements have changed over the last year.

Happy Thursday!


  1. Woohoo! I get to make the first comment!!

    I can't wait to see your before/after pictures. Seriously, I think you'll really see the difference.

    It's been a challenge, hasn't it? You're doing well -- don't doubt yourself, even if you don't feel you are where you sould be.

    I know... It's like the pot calling the kettle black. :)


  2. Congrats on a year of positive, healthy change!

  3. Congratulations, Kim! I think this surgery was one of the best things any of us could have done for ourselves!


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
