Smile Long time no see... and goal pics! :)

It's been a while since I've been here... life is crazy busy. I reached (and surpassed) my goal weight and just wanted to share some pictures with you all. I hope that this can be encouraging to those of you at the very beginning of your WLS journey. It really is worth all of the headache (and sometimes heartache), incredibly hard work, and emotional journeys we take to get there!

Now I'm figuring out maintenance (been maintaining for a couple of months now.) This is a different beast altogether and I'm learning a lot along the way.

HW: 293

VSG 12/15/14

ETA: please excuse the incredibly dirty mirror. I have 3 tiny people that love to leave fingerprints wherever they go.
