Just a quick update.

I'm just going to do a quick update today because I don't have a lot to talk about.  Again, I'd like to invite you to e-mail me (using the Contact tab at the top of the page) if there's anything you would like me to talk about.  

Last weekend marked 4 months post surgery.  To be honest it feels like a lot longer then that!  The incision is completely healed up.  Where it was really hard and raised just about my butt crack has completely settled down.  I also think that my belly button looks a lot better.  I am considering getting it pierced though.  I'll have to wait and see what Dr. DeRobert's opinion is on that.  Not aesthetically but  medically LOL.

Where he lasered my birthmark looks pretty good.  It's going to need another treatment though to make it disappear.  But it is much lighter then it was:  

Not too bad, huh?  

I ran 10 miles this morning - it was hot and humid and my ass did not want to leave the house!!  But I did and I'm glad I did!  Felt good afterwards.  Ran the 10 in 1:26:15 - which is less then 8:45 a mile.  Not too shabby!

I see my primary care doc this week.  I got blood drawn and am anxious to see my numbers.  I saw him in June of last year and my cholesterol level was still 200.  It should have come down.

Oh, and it looks like I picked a pretty good goal weight.  I'm holding steady at 118-119 so I think my body likes this weight!  I would like to drop 1-2 more pounds as a buffer, but I'm pretty content right now!


  1. Hi it's Cath (again he he). My request is to post more photos!!! They are so motivating, especially the before and after photos. It would be cool if you had a tab we could click on that had all your photos, that way we don't have to search through your posts to find them. OH! And do you know how to tell if you are small boned or big boned?

  2. Hi Cath!

    Here is a body frame calculator. I don't know how accurate it might be when you are still carrying a lot of extra weight...

    I will work on a pictures tab - I think there is a way to do it.
