Weight Loss Picture update


This pic was taken on Friday night. My hubby and I went out on a date the night before we brought the new baby home. During the date we walked around the mall holding hands, watched ice skaters and went out to dinner. I felt like I was walking on air because I had not done this with him in about 8 years because of my weight/back. (p.s., the pants are a size 18!) :)So, I am now a sexy beast because I fit in to my black boots which I have not worn for YEARS! (My ankles got to fat so they would not close.)
This is me in our hospital room (the hospital gave us our own room, isn't that cool?) right before we went to the nursery to pick up the baby and bring her home. What a miracle that was made possible by my surgery in so many ways. #1, I could not walk more than a few feet before surgery #2, I could not have picked up a new baby #3, I am happier than I have EVER been which makes sleepless night much more bearable. :) Sorry, I know I look a mess in this pic but I had already cried off all my make-up. lol Thanks for all the congrats! I appreciate it so much! I am STILL at 237 which means I have been in a stall for almost 2 months. BUT... my body is still changing and I can do more and more each day so I'm all good!

You look beautiful and you look like you are glowing. I'm sure bringing home that precious baby has something to do with that....although, I'd have to say gaining yourself back has even more to do with it. Since my surgery, I've lost 77 lbs and my self-esteem is in a completely different place than when I was huge...be proud of your accomplishments and I'm sure that stall will soon break.

p.s. The boot thing...I know that feeling. I have a pair that I haven't been able to zip up in years and even with that, they were still too tight. Ummm...maybe I should try mine on again!
