I came out...

on Facebook. I posted before and after pictures. I am not sure why this has been such a big deal.
The occasion? It's been 6 months since I made the decision to change my life.
4 months since surgery. Can you see the difference?

I see a big change and I am loving every minute of it!
Kind of puts things in a whole new perspective!
I am not ashamed of who I was or what I have become!
And for the first time maybe ever, I actually believe that!
How about you? Are you worth it?!? I THINK YOU ARE!!
I have been on full liquids since yesterday's unfill. I did eat some super moist meat loaf tonight. I really wanted substance. I had zero issues!
Today's numbers we out of this world great!! I am proud of myself today!
Calories: 1043.42
Fat: 15.33
Sugar: 11.18
Protein: 131.27
Tonight was busy with my daughters band concert. So the C25K run suffered and didn't happen tonight. Tomorrow will be my run day. I start week 3 day 1. Run for 90 seconds, walk for 90 seconds, run for 3 minutes, walk for 3 minutes. I know I can do it.  But today I swam. Not very fast but burned about 150 calories. Not the best work out day, but good for liquid calories all day. Protein shakes galore!
I will win this war! With each obstacle I overcome! 
WE will overcome and prevail!
And so it begins! Again! Join me!
