One Year Later!

I can't believe that 1 whole year has gone by since having my RNY.  Everyday I thank God, my family and my wonderful surgeon for supporting my decision.  I am in the best shape of my life.  Not even as a teenager did I feel as good as I do nowadays. 
I have lost 110 lbs. so far and am hoping to lose another 22 lbs. in the next couple of months in order to reach my goal of 160 lbs.
There are days that I look at myself in the mirror and still see this "Fat" girl.  Those are the days I sit down in front of my computer and start looking at old pictures of myself and really realize that I may not be "skinny" (then again that was never my goal) but I have come a long way to becoming healthy and much more comfortable with the way I look.  I know that I may not be completely satisfied with how I look until I'm able to get rid of all the extra skin around my abdomen.  I hope that will be something that I can have done in the next few years.
Here are pictures of my Before and After.
I hope that those of you looking to better your health and the way you feel, really give this surgery some consideration.  This is a life changing decision and by no means is this an easy way out.  You will have to continue a healthy diet in order to maintain your weightloss.  And an exercise routine is always something great to have as well.
I want to wish every one of you that follow my blog a Happy and Healthy New Year full of many good good things!
