Two-Month Stats and Photos

I don't think I've done one of these yet, have I?

As of today I am just over two months post-op, and here are my stats for anyone who is interested:

Starting weight on 3/31/13 (start of pre-op diet): 259.8
Surgery Day weight on 4/10/13: 244.2
Current weight 6/13/13: 208.4
Total weight lost: 51.4 pounds
Goal weight: 145
Pounds to goal: 63.4

I don't know how to quantify inches lost because everyone does it differently.  But I've lost over five inches from my boobs, six inches from my waist, five inches from my hips, and two inches from my legs.

I have "official" photos (taken from several angles in more form-fitting clothes) that I'll release later after I've progressed further, but here are some unofficial ones in the meantime:

And yes, I purposely wore that sweater in the most recent photo.  In fact, it's my favorite sweater and I think I'm going to be a little bummed when it no longer fits.  The jeans in the first picture have been retired.  I liked those, too, but I'll get over it. :-)


  1. That's awesome DeeDee! You're an inspiration to us all! Go on with yer bad self!

  2. i believe the common phrase is - you go, girl! I'm getting rebanded tomorrow - been on a break since March 20 and girl... am I ready to go back on it. Funny, how it's been since I've been unrestricted, and you know what? I don't like it. Sure, it's easier. But I'm eating crap just because I'm hungry. I think the only thing I'll miss again are sushi rolls (eating the piece in one bite) and guzzling cold water when I'm thirsty. That's it. Not such a bad trade-off, in my opinion

  3. Mmmmnnnnnnnyyyyyyeeeeeeesssssssss!

    Excellent! Can't wait to see you in person on Saturday!

  5. As you keep getting smaller ; ) you can get temporary clothes from thrift shops, and donate them when you need a new size! But I still love your sweater... I'm with Andrea... but shrink it in the dryer and wear it with leggins!

  6. I have bins and bins of clothes in the basement, so I won't need to buy that many for awhile. I'm still sort of between sizes, so that's a little frustrating sometimes, but I probably really don't need to buy anything for at least another month or two. And then I will hold a clothing exchange with my friends. We do one at least once a year and they're always fun.

    The funny thing is that I think that sweater was actually *supposed* to be a dress, but I could never wear it as one! LOL!!
