    Happy Thanksgiving!!

    Here is a weight loss breakdown by month:
    October & November total = 47

    December = 14
    January = 18
    February = 11
    March = 15
    April = 12
    May = 12
    June = 10
    July = 6
    August = 5
    September = 11
    October = 9
    November (so far) = 7
    Total -177
    (Since beginning of Pre Op diet on 10-11-06)

    Last week I was able to buy clothes from the regular sized women's department. I got 4 shirts (size XL and 2 pairs of jeans (size 16) for $40. I used to spend $40 on one pair of jeans. I really needed to buy a large but I'll try to shrink the XL. The jeans are really cute, but shrunk as I expected after washing. They fit perfectly.

    I'm hoping that tomorrow will be better than last year's Thanksgiving. I don't expect to have any adversity regarding my weight. Most of my family has seen me lately.

    I've been feeling pretty great except that I've got laryngitis and a sinus problem. It's weird that I get viruses in my chest now since surgery.

    I can't believe I've lost 177 pounds in just over 12 1/2 months. That's crazy! I wish I'd had faith enough to know how great things would be one year out from weight loss surgery.

    I have so much to be thankful for this year. I am able to be a better mother, wife, daughter and employee because of the benefits of weight loss surgery. I have two intelligent, healthy daughters and a husband who loves me with all of his heart.

    Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
