It's finally here!  Other than reaching goal (now 30.3 pounds away), this is *THE* moment I've been waiting for!  Although I've not been able to track down how small/large I was in high school, I'm pretty confident in saying that I haven't been in onederland since early in my high school career.  Here are the stats I do know - my heaviest weight was 338.2 back at the end of 2009 when I was preparing for LapBand surgery in January 2010.  After weight loss, medical issues and regain, I "restarted" my journey in late May 2013 at 311 pounds and had my Gastric Sleeve surgery done on June 7, 2013.  I've come a long way since then!

At 5'9", the BMI scale (for whatever it's worth) puts the high range of a "normal" weight for me at 169 pounds.  Given my larger frame, I'm not sure I want to weigh much less than that - but we'll see when I get there!  Ultimately, my goal for myself is 169.1...I want to be half the girl I was when I started this journey.  Regardless, today's about a CEL-E-BRA-TION! :D

After a long, few months of stalls, plateaus, etc. (I've only lost 16.4 pounds in 6 months), I'm excited to see a "1" starting my weight for the first time in probably 20 years.  Here's to never seeing a "2" or "3" starting my weight ever again!!! :)
