Default No longer morbidly obese!

After a little post surgery whoosh (I had gallbladder surgery last Tuesday), I am down to 216 and finally no longer morbidly obese. It's still a little surreal - I've been over the threshold since my senior year of high school - but I'm really happy to finally be at this point.

And to top it off, my waist is now just under 40".

I can't wait to be fully recovered and celebrate by hitting the gym - I'm starting personal training in April as my "reward."
