Today marks one year since I started writing this blog. Wow. In some ways I feel like I just started writing it a few weeks ago. I've really been through a lot over the past year.
I obviously had major surgery for the first time in my life when I had the excess skin removed. That has been a life changing experience. I still have the large scar all the way around that reminds me - every single time I see myself naked that I had it. But I tend to look less at the scar now and instead focus on my slowly emerging abs.
I see that in that first post that I said I had lost 205 pounds as of that writing. So that means I've lost another 23 pounds since then. 7 can be attributed to the surgery and the rest due to more hard work.
Those of you who have been reading from the start or close to the start have seen a lot! You've seen way more of my body then you probably ever wanted to see - from before pics to right after surgery pics! You've watched as I hit my weight loss goal. You've seen me flying high and have also seen my total and complete meltdowns.
I hope that there are people reading that find value in this blog - otherwise it's more like me publicly publishing a diary!
I'm feeling really good as I continue this journey and please let me know if you have anything that you would like me to talk about in my blog posts! I'm not sure what the future holds, but I'm looking forward to maintenance and all that comes with it!
