Hi everyone! I have been following alot on this website for the past 2 months and even though I havent posted much this website has helped me so much. I just needed to share this with people who understand. I am 5 months post op yesterday. I have lost 115 lbs down from 300 lbs. People that see me are always asking me about my weight loss, I see the scale going down but I don't think it really hit me until today. I woke up and looked in the mirror and couldn't believe how diffrent I looked. Driving to work this morning I had to pull my seat up because my stomach wasn't hitting the stearing wheel anymore. Then standing next to a co worker who I always felt so huge around, I actually felt like I wasn't overshawdowing her. I just could not believe how strange it is that one day I don't notice to much of a difference and the next I can't stop looking in the mirror to make sure it's real. Thank you guys for being so great.
