The positive side of that is the whole not eating thing has of course caused me to lose even more weight. I'm now comfortably in "One"derland. Do you know what that is? I'll let you figure that one out.
I also weigh at least 5 pounds less than my hubby. That was a big goal of mine. I think most women would like to be smaller than their man, right? However, him being a man, he'll probably catch up to me again in about 5 seconds so I have to enjoy this victory while it lasts!
Before my wonderfully supportive husband went off to work, he took my 3 month picture and then said "WOW, you're really going to see a difference". Here are the comparison shots. Day one after surgery, and today.

The first thing I noticed once I put the pictures side by side is the amount of 'me' that used be in front of my arms, as compared to now. Wow, that was a lot of belly. The butt is still plentiful, but much smaller these days. What differences do you see?
I broke down and did a little shopping yesterday. Hubby kept saying I was wearing my 'big girl pants', so it was time. At first I tried on some pants a size smaller than what I normally wear and I was so mad/depressed because I couldn't get them buttoned. When I left the dressing room and went to put the pants back on the rack, I realized I was standing in the Juniors section! Ah, OK, that explains it. I made my way to ladies, grabbed some 16's and 14's, and guess what? The 16's were way too big in the waist! I came home with some cute little size 14 jeans and they look good. It sure feels good to not have that darn 'W' after the 14 too. I'm officially just a regular lady now.
Here's my attempt at taking a picture of myself in the mirror since I was the only one around this morning.
