Party Time!! Bloggah Style!

Gonna try my hand at a blog party!
I'll meet new people and maybe get my blog out there!

I'm an Army wife who just had Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (about 85 % of my stomach removed) about 2 months ago.
Life is CRAZY different when you can only eat proteins and only 2 oz at a time.
I've become an exercize-a-holic (on most days), and thanks to that, I am quickly shrinking, and starting my new life!
I'm almost down 50 lbs, and am sharing my ups and downs along the way!

Before Surgery

After Surgery, New Look, New Attitude!

You look FANTASTIC! And beautiful! I'm so happy for you and inspired by you. I'm type 2 diabetic, have lost over 50 pounds but need to lose about 20 more...and it's sooo hard. I need all the inspiration I can get!

I do hope you'll stop by my blog and say hi!

Blessings, and best wishes as you continue your journey!

Sandy said...

Wow! Visiting you from the UBP! I'm also on a new healthy journey, and am down a total of 31 pounds, but am working to avoid surgery. I blog about healthy things but don't really focus on my weight - since its still a really personal thing for me. You're looking great! I hope you stop by my blog, and we can encourage each other along the way.
