Sadly, I doubt I will have future funds for any cosmetic surgery... And the tata's definitely need a pick me up. The stretch marks are epic on the girls, and not so hot on my stomach either.

In lieu of going under the knife, have any of you tried StriVectin?!? Thoughts? Was it worth the pricey tube? How did you use it in your post WLS life???

A humorous observation.

I feel like a Sharpei.

Yes, one of those adorable dogs with the flappy skin and folds. I notice it most when I'm laying on the couch, and I go to slightly move my leg... Because part of it just languishes there until I move my leg a few inches left or right!!! Or when I lift my legs in the air, my excess fat and skin kind of just pools at the lowest point! A girls got to love gravity!

Ahh, the things we notice about our bodies post WLS, ha!

A bit of food fashion!

If we can't eat our food (well... In the same quantities!), what about wearing it!?

Found this article by random today... It reminded me of the Lady GaGa meat dress from the Grammy's a few years back. Although my first reaction towards the hamburger shoe is a bit of disguist... The elegant artichoke heart gown was stunning!

Food for thought?

One Hundred.

In late December of 2010, at my pre-surgery weigh-in, the scale hit 270 lbs... With my BMI clocking in at 44.9

Here it is August of 2011, and I'm happy to share with you all that today, the scale read 170 lbs...

Yup, you guessed it!

I've lost 100 pounds!!!

And I'm ecstatic to report that my current BMI is 28.3

Today is a fantastic day!!!

I should make a list of all things that weigh one hundred pounds to celebrate - hehe!

Picture of the day...

This delicious little artichoke is growing in my raised-bed garden. Can't wait to make a pouch worthy dish featuring it, yum!
