Updated 6/21/2013:
I joined SparkPeople in April 2007 when I took a look at the pictures of my vow renewal ceremony. At this time I weighed about 220lbs which was my highest except while I was pregnant. Between that time and 2010, I lost and gained the same several lbs every year.

In January 2011 I decided to get serious about taking the weight off permanently and by the end of the year I had gotten down to my lowest weight since starting this journey at 191.2.

In 2012 I started out the year great but slowly lost momentum. I didn't gain all the weight back but I was up to 203 by the end of the year. In 2012 my husband decided that he had enough of the ups and downs and decided to do something more permanent and had WLS in November 2012. This is when I made my decision also.

So 2013 start with me at 203 and seeking the help of WLS. My insurance required me to see a nutritionist for 2 months and was able to get down to 199. Everything was set and I was waiting for the insurance approval when I unfortunately had a little set back. In April I had an episode of Bell's Palsy and had to take steriods for 15 days which had me going up to 208lbs. On April 13th I started my Pre-op diet weighing 203lbs. On the day of surgery I weighed in at 198.4.

    Beautiful Little Christmas

    Have yourself a merry little Christmas
    like the great songs say
    dance with joy under the winter sun
    engage in laughter and play
    Have yourself a beautiful little Christmas
    Cause deep within your heart
    We all know the power of this love
    Should be found everyday from the start
    Have yourself a merry little Christmas
    Let your dreams be free
    sing songs with friends all around
    gather gifts under the brightly lit tree
    Have yourself a beautiful little Christmas
    and every night from now on
    send good wishes to all mankind
    may you do your best to do no wrong.
