It's My Bandiversary!

One year ago today, December 15, 2009 I changed my life. I am so glad that I made that decision for myself. It has been a crazy year changing both physically and emotionally. So here are some quick stats:

Total Weight Loss from my High of 303: 93 pounds
Surgery Weight: 277
Today's Weight: 210
Weight Loss Since Surgery: 67 pounds, an average of 1.28 pounds per week.
Pants Size: Size 30 to Size 18
Shirt Size: Size 4X to Size XL

So here's the pictures you've all been waiting for of me and my huge pants! This was my pre-op picture, I am at about 285 pounds in a 3X shirt and size 30 jeans.

Holy cow, there's almost room for another person in there! All that belly fat is gone! Well--a good portion of it anyway! And look at those sleeves, before they were tightly stretched across my big fat upper arms. Now it's loose (even with my bat wings!) I think the third picture is my favorite shot. That's an awful lot of denim! I'm so glad that I am filling out less of it. Things are only going to get better from here! Happy Bandiversary to me!!!!
