Four weeks ago today I had my life changing bariatric surgery. I took my measurements on November 16, 2011 and here's what they were:
Weight: 243 pounds
Thigh: 33(R) and 34(L)
Arm: 17(R) and (L)
Today, December 15, 2011 I took my measurements and am happy to say they aren't the same as above!
Weight: 221 pounds
Hips: 51 inches
Waist: 38 inches
Bust: 41 inches (Chest size is 37 inches)
Thigh: 31(R) and 32(L)
Arm: 16 (R + L)
So while progress is being made according to the numbers, I really haven't noticed too much. My favorite pair of jeans still fit, but are just a tad bit loose. I did notice right away that my bra can be clasped on the first set of hooks. Maybe now I can go to Victoria's Secret! :) I could never do that before. I will try to take a photo today for my scrapbook to show the progress, but I'm pretty sure you don't want to see me in my underthings on here. :)
Thanks for all your support and love through all this. Everyday I thank God for my family and friends!
