Now.....normally, I don't care whether or not I have a padding of fat. In fact, I prefer having *some* fat. However, when that fat leads to being prediabetic and having apnea and not being able to move and play with my children......then I have a problem.
(Which is why I got Gastric Sleeve Surgery.)
But now? Now I am getting healthy. I am starting to see bumps and edges on my body that I've not seen since I was 15 or 16. Literally. This is very exciting for me.
I've decided to post before and after pics...
|My starting weight was 240 pounds.|
|Yeah. I was big. That's why I rarely post pics of myself from the shoulders down.|
|YES. That's an Iceman Tee shirt. YES. That's a really bad angle.|
|So....sideways angles aren't really my bag, baby.|
|In order to have Gastric Sleeve surgery, I had to lose preliminary weight. Between the pre-diet, and the liquid diet, I went down to 205 by surgery day.|
I'm so proud of the decision I've made to put my health and my family first. I have so many things I want to do with my children and husband. I might even enjoy having my picture taken with readers again! Woot, woot!
Okay, enough about me. Are all of you aware that The Art of Being Indifferent comes out soon? And I'm about 3 seconds away from sending Then & Now (Candace's story, book 3 of the This & That Series) to my editor. Squeeeee! Can't wait to share them both with you! And guess what's coming after that? Book 2 in the Fairfield series.....Layla's story! Hooray!
