Goal! - a journey down weight loss lane to goal

05-11-2009, 04:59 AM
I had gastric bypass in June 2005. I've lost a total of 130 pounds and kept it off for over three years:carrot:

I had a tummy tuck/liposuction/hernia and muscle repair almost seven weeks ago. I don't have any pictures of my progress from that but I'll be going on vacation soon to the beach and for the first time since I can remember, I won't mind wearing a bathing suit in front of people! I even bought a bikini. I must be crazy:dizzy:

Here is my journey down weight loss lane:

Highest Weight. May 05
(picture from my first wedding. ugh)


This is me midway through the journey. Sept.05

At my second wedding to the love of my life. Oct 10,2008 (below goal)

About a month before my tummy tuck

Two weeks before the tummy tuck. In Vegas.

I'll post tummy tuck pictures soon as well as my pierced belly button! I actually have one that can be seen now and am hoping to get it pierced tomorrow!!!

I can't wait to take a look at everyone else's journey!!!!

You look amazing!!
I thought about the gastric bypass a while back, and my cousin had it done. But I would be scared I would eat too much after I had it done.
But Congratulations!!!
I hope one day I will be able to put my journey pictures up also!
