Height: 5'1"

Default 5% down!

So, after setbacks such as getting close and then gaining some lbs again, I finally lost the 5% minimum my Bariatric surgeon requires of me! And a little extra!

I'm that much closer to surgery, and only have a couple of hurdles left. Now that I have my medical insurance back (for more details on this, see my blog) we can get the process back up and running!

I am also sooooo close to saying goodbye to 300! I'm hoping to lose that last lb, and be in 290s next week! *crosses fingers*

But anyway, I was really really nervous about being able to shed that 5% on my own, and I did it! Ah!
