Three Years Later & Better Than Ever

As many of you already know, I had weight loss surgery almost three years ago.

I have since went from 253 pounds. I now weigh around 135 pounds. I am 5'2".
I was morbidly obese, and I now am at a healthy weight.

I do an update post every year. This year's post is a little early; I have been itching to do it ever since I bought my first pair of skinny jeans last month.


So this year, indulge me. Instead of talking about how I feel and how healthy I am....can I just talk about how FREAKING. FABULOUS. I. LOOK??!!


Because
I
Look
Fabulous!

and
I
am
HAPPY!

I can buy clothes off the rack and they actually look GOOD on me!


Not too shabby for 37 years old??


I can wear SKINNY JEANS!!


So....I feel that I have earned the right
to do a little bragging.
And anyone who doesn't like it.....
Kiss This! ;-)


Considering that I used to look like this:


Yeah...I earned it!

As I'm always, I'm open to your questions regarding weight loss surgery. Fire away!

Holy @&^# you DO look Fan-Freakin-Tabulous! I guess I haven;t been following you long enough to know this. WOW, what a difference! Congratulations & brag on sista, you deserve to!!!

I am 5'1" and man oh man does extra weight really make an impact on your body. I need to loose a good 40 pounds. I have no motivation. I really need to find it because for the first time in ever I am really uncomfortable in my skin. It really bums me out, especially since my hubby is thin. Uggghhh, do I need to find that motivation!

You look phenomenal!


I wrote you in the past with some questions since I am interested in the kind of surgery you had, etc. Can you refer me to where you blogged about your surgery so I can read it, print it and take it to my doctor? You're in my prayers for continued good health and success.

I envy the skinny jeans as I have gotten myself down to a respectable size but have yet to find a pair of skinny jeans that will fit over my thighs!
