Thank you all so much, yes it is gastric bypass. But it took me 4 years to get to this weight. I have lost the weight very slowly (it took a year to lose the first 100 lbs), I work hard everyday. I exercise like a mad woman and watch everything that goes in my mouth. Because when I was 2 years out I weighed 140 lbs and I gained 30 lbs, and weighed 170 lbs. I was horrified that I had gastric bypass and was letting myself gain weight I NEVER want to weigh 325 lbs again. So I got back on track and lost those 30 and 25 more !

For me the surgery, was just another "thing" to help me get to my goal.

Again I want to thank everyone for your kind words. This thread always amazes me when I see how great everyone has done! And for those that have done it without having to have surgery my hat is off to you, I wish I could have done it without surgery.

Oh yeah, the baby in the picture is one of my sons (I have 4), he was on a vent, in a drug induced coma for 2 weeks when he was born. But he is fine now!

Hazel-Even though you had surgery, I know it was hard work. People don't realize how hard it still is with surgery. You should be very proud of yourself. And like you said, it will continue to be hard work, just like for the rest of us. I have seen many who have had the surgery, who have gained a lot of their weight back, because it doesn't last forever, as you found out yourself. Keep up the great work you are doing for yourself, you look fabulous.

before and current pics

I took some pictures for another thread today (to show what a size 12 looks like) and thought they'd be good for this thread too.
Me before, at 242 at size 18-22(I can't remember the exact size).



Me today at 179.5 in a pair of size 12 jeans. But they're stretch jeans so who knows what size they really are.

Katie, I know pictures can be bad, but in the pictures you look not only look like you've lost a lot of weight, but you also lost 20 years. You are so cute now. Keep up the great work. I weigh 10 pounds less, but have to wear a 14 stretch jean. But it may be that it is because you are younger, 22 years younger, and my belly area has had 2 c-sections and many years of a huge stomach. 12's look good on you!

Regardless of the real size of the stretch jeans, you have lost weight/inches and you look amazing. The lighter hair is very pretty on you. CONGRATS!!

Really great.

Here's me, the first is me at my heighest weight of 250. I look really odd because I was posing for a silly picture at a theme park.
The second was after I lost a bit of weight. The third is a picture of me last January around 198lbs(excuse the hair, I was just out of the shower and never planned to post this picture, lol), and the forth is me today at 172lbs.

And this is from the front. The first two are me around 240 to 250, the last is me today at 172.

Harleylady-you go girl. Aim for those 6's. I'm barely in 8's (mostly 10's) and enjoying the ride. LC rocks!! You look so pretty with either brunette or blonde hair. I can't pull off either and am way better as a blonde. You're beautiful with either. Btw-hold out for a good guy. Friend first and the other stuff is the icing on the cake .
