Week 9: Weigh In Wednesday and 2 Month Surgaversary

Hello everyone! Sorry it’s a tad bit late but here it is. ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t quite make Onederland this week but that’s ok because I made my 50 lb mark which is just enough reason to celebrate. Woohoo! I missed Motivational Monday and my Two Month surgaversary this week since I didn’t get home until really late that day. So, I’m going to do a Two Month post here too – check out my video below for all the dets!

Highest Weight (Jan 3, 2013): 251.6 lbs

Day of Surgery (Mar 6, 2013): 231.5 lbs

Nine Weeks Post-Op (May 07, 2013): 201.4 lbs

Total loss of: 50.2 lbs

I made this photo below from a picture on New Years 2013 and a picture from this weekend at the toy store. For those of you who are my friends on Facebook, you may have already seen it. But here is the comparison from where I started and where I’m at so far. I still have another 50-70 lbs to lose but I am happy with the progress so far. ๐Ÿ™‚ By the way, I totally love Cookie Monster… I think we were twins separated at birth. Haha.

Weight loss is not an easy journey. No matter how you do it, it’s a struggle every day. Along the way you don’t really feel the change… but looking back, you can see it.
Down 50lbs since January but still have a long way to go to reach my goal. Chipping away a little at a time.

  1. Wow Dana, you look amazing!
    Compared to me, your starting weight was quite small and I would have loved to have been your weight, but just seeing those two pictures you’ve done a fantastic job and it looks like it’s been worth it!

    Well done, can’t wait to see another 50lbs gone!

    Oh and are you wearing some cute little shorts there?!

    • Hehe. Thanks! It’s always great to hear compliments like that.

      Yes, those shorts are my favorites right now. They are a 16W. I couldn’t even pull them up all the way over my bottom before… now they are lose on me. I wore them all day walking 11+ miles and didn’t have issues with them riding up and chub rub (at least not much). Truly a happy day. Hehe.

      Don’t you worry. You are going to be there right behind me. I cannot wait for you to start your journey too! Only a couple more weeks! Exciting!
