I haven't blogged for a few weeks because I have been so busy!!!

I reached my high end goal weight and beyond on May 25th. which was our 15 year wedding anniversary. This week I have maintained that weight and hope to continue to do so from here on out. I can not believe the progress I was abler to make. I never would have believed that having bariatric surgery would have been so successful for me. But, in 47 weeks, I have lost 183 pounds, 18 pant sizes from a 50-52 to a 34 and I feel great!!! I have had the best support group between my doctors, friends and family!!

My wife and I went to the outlet malls on our anniversary because we love to window shop. We went to Van Heusen's outlet store. Wifey found a $140 jacket that was on sale for $9.99. She had me try on the large size and it was too big. So, she found a medium and it fit!!!!! That means I have gone from a size 4x shirt and jacket down to a medium... UNBELIEVABLE!!!

I look forward to the days ahead, remaining healthy and maintaining my new lifestyle and weight!!
