-7.8 lb loss

-59.4 lb loss since surgery
-86 lb loss overall


Has it really been 3/7/13 since my last post?!?! I'm in disbelief... I can't believe it... I have my laptop now so i'm hoping the posts will start a rollin in!! 

Ya'll see that? 86 flippin el bees GONE forever!!! 

Kind of in disbelief about that too... I am finally at the point in my journey where I have actually realized I look different....like... a LOT different. Almost every time I look in the mirror I don't feel like i'm looking at my own reflection... I don't recognize the girl in the mirror. My mind still tries to make me think i'm 261 lb Julie, so when I look in the mirror that's what I expect to see... Some times it really is almost shocking.   

I know I haven't done pics in a while... I WILL, I promise. But here is a pic 6lbs ago, when I hit 80 lbs lost.

I think the shirt says it all... :)

 That weekend I went and visited my friend who works at MAC, I came in for a foundation match and she ended up doing a complete makeover lol 

Bought my first tube of RED lipstick!!
Finally worked up the courage to apply it myself...
It's really weird to see my face so thin... I Love it, don't get me wrong...still just getting used to it!

My next big leap is........
