So, I’m coming up on six months out from surgery in a few days and a little over a week away from the one year mark of starting the supervised diet. I’m excited to write a post recapping the last year and also to share some before and “during” pictures (FYI – this is not that post lol).
I was looking through some pictures here at work there are saved in a shared network folder from a summer event that took place in July 2011. I knew there were a few candid photos of me in there (since I never POSED for the camera back then), so I went in search of them to use for my upcoming post.
WOW…. photos do NOT lie. I took one look at the picture and suddenly got emotional – right here in my office. Who is this person? I remember her…. she was in pain, she was miserable, and she felt alone in her struggles! The past really hit me like a tons of bricks.
Thank God for all of you, for this surgery, and for giving me the good sense to wake up, get real, and take action. Here is one of the photos I found (and this isn’t even at my heaviest, nor does it show you my entire body – but you get the idea):
