What a difference almost a year makes

The picture on the left was taken one year ago today (August 19) about a week before my lapband surgery. The picture on the right was taken a week ago. Words cannot express my emotion. I have a long way to go but I do have to celebrate the difference.

Woohoo!!! You look absolutely fanbloodytastic.

Wow, isn't great to keep track of where we have come from? It is so rewarding to look back.

Congratulations!

This band thing is one great tool!

Well done Sylvia!! What a fantastic difference, you deserve to feel really good about yourself. This is an angle we never normally see of ourselves, so you must have found the two pictures really interesting too.
