A Christmas card comparison.



click on the picture to make it bigger.
Okay folks here it is, the one on the left is last years Christmas card (I scanned it, so excuse the grainy look) and the one on the right is this years. I have to say I really do see a difference in me. Last year at this time I was miserable, I was unhappy in every outfit I put on, I was hoping to be banded in January and met with one delay after the next. I remember my poor husband looking at me with fear in his eyes one night and asking me what I would do if I couldn't get the band. I looked at him and said, "jump off the bridge!" I was only half joking.

Getting the band has changed my life so much. I feel in control of food for the first time in decades. My hips and back don't hurt, my feet don't hurt, I have more energy, I sleep better and I think I look better too. I can only imagine what the next 50 pounds will do for me.
Merry Christmas Y'all!
Big Hugs,
T

Love it! I notice that in the first one you are "hiding" behind the christmas tree. I used to do that trick too! Not any more though!
