Down 31 and our 2 yr anniversary

I have FINALLY broken my plateau, and boy did I break it! Yesterday morning when I stepped on the scale I was down 5lbs!! I went to the gym 4 days this week, and swam a mile each time. I found out this week that a mile swimming equals 32 laps in a 50 meter pool. I mixed it up by swimming a few laps with a kick board and some freestyle. I went and bought some hot new pink goggles this morning.
On another note when Rick and I started dating 2 years ago, I weighed 217lbs, when I went for surgery I was 248lbs. This means that on our 2 year anniversary I am finally back down to the weight I was when we met. My goal is 199 by Thanksgiving, this is a very aggressive goal but if I can keep up my exercise routine I'm hoping it's achievable.
This pic was taken last night before we went out to celebrate. I'm wearing a new dress I bought @ Target, in a size 1! Apparently it's the new trend to size plus sized clothing in sizes 1-7 lol. It does make me feel pretty good to be able to buy a size 1 though!
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!


  1. You look beautiful! Love the dress. Hope that you had a good time celebrating. Way to go on the weight are rocking that band!

  2. I've been reading your blog are doing amazing!

    I'm from MA. and am 24 too!

    I just had my first visit with the surgeon today...did they ever try to tell you you were too young or should diet some more first???

    I'm really confused as to what to do after today...need some help and advice...!

  3. Hi, Thank you so much for the comment! Which hospital did you go too? They never mentioned me being too young, they said I was at a good age. I am here for you and can give you all the advice I have. If you want, you can email me @
