1 year and 100+ Down!!!

So it has been just over a year since I checked in at Evans and had my stomach rearranged.... can you believe it? One year ago I had Gastric Bypass, the life changing decision I am so glad I made! I am happy to say I feel healthy, energetic, and happy! And down 105 lbs! When i weighed in this morning I weighed 161... I weighed 266 a year ago. So much had changed since then We moved to Japan and had to say see ya later to so many people I love and miss, although I have gotten to visit some when I traveled back it is the only thing that makes me sad. I want to share my time with all of the wonderful supportive friends back in the states. But I have made some great friends here as well that have helped me in my journey and I am so thankful for them as well! God has truly blessed me in my life!
Next entry will be in 21 lbs when I am at my goal weight! See you then!

Me at 163... Size 8!
(yea the smallest thing I own.. I wear a 10/12 really, but I was excited!!
I never remember wearing an 8 EVER!!)

I wasn't mad.. just didn't know the picture
was about to be taken, the smiling one was blurry.
But I like this dress.. may go back and get it.
In Seattle @ 173 lbs (sz 14)

Diva Diary Entry 9..LOL

Heeeeeeey!! What's up everyone! So this is my 9th post for Shrinking Diva and 9 is also the sum of my current weight!! As of this morning I weigh 180! That is 86 lbs down since June.

I cannot explain how good I am feeling about this! And i finally feel like it is showing. I know everyone else has seen it more then me, but I really see it now! I run into people I have met during my earlier months in Okinawa and they have been noticing too. I have already lost 46 since I got on island in August. I have been back in the Gym since New Years every weeknight and last Saturday I started with a trainer who is kicking my butt, but I can feel it so he is doing something right!! I never knew I could work out that hard and still be breathing! I am feeling good about my new found strength and abilities, like I did pull ups for the first time ever, even when I was younger and smaller I could never do them! I am so much closer to my goal! Just have to decide what that goal is now. it was 140 but I am looking better then I thought at 180 that 150 may be the magic #.
I do have to admit I have developed a little bit of a shopping problem... yea not so good, but at least I am making money to support the new habit! I love being able to fit cute clothes and not have to choose from the 3 shirts that look ok in my old size.
Well this is just a short updat, I am doing a pin-up/50's shoot Sunday so I will have really awesome pics in the next entry!! One of my Fav Photographers Eboh Ajeroh is doing them and I am excited, and no they are not the boudoir or sexy kind. I will be fully clothed! ;) you know you were thinking it.

Well I am out!! Luv y'all!
