122 pounds and counting

So far I have lost 122 pounds. I continue to exercise 3-5 times a week. I love lifting weights. I think that has really help my weight loss. It has been really fun to go shopping. I went to Old Navy to get some polos for school. It is the first time I have ever been able to buy clothes there. It is really exciting to shop in stores that have regular sizes. I have also been able to get some cute clothes at the Good will store in Carol Stream. I have gone down another size. Depending on the brand of clothes, (the more expesive clothes I can usually fit into the smaller size)I can fit into a 16 or 18. I haven't been those sizes since I was a senior in high school. On September 16th, it will be one year since I have had the surgery. It has been an amazing journey. I have so much more energy than I used to have. I continue to have problems occasionally with vomiting. I have determined that it is because I eat too much. It is really challanging because I feel like I eat so little. Please pray that I would be able to listen to my body more closely and know when I am getting full.
