I promised afterpics here. We actually finished it mid-April, but I'm a lazy blogger.
And figured progress pics would be needed. Here are my 'before' pics, from 54 lbs ago.
I'm now down to the size I was briefly in college, but haven't really been since high school. I feel great and am even running in a 5K later this month. This is about six months out from my 'before' pics and about five months post-surgery. We'll see what I look like in another 5-6 months!
