Here is my submission for becoming a true FREAK!
My name is Pamela and I had RNY Gastric Bypass on December 29, 2008.
I have lost 110 pounds so far (still have about 30 to go).
I consider myself a freak because I have taken up running. Running. Did I just say that? If you had asked me a year ago if I was going to start running after surgery I would have said "Why? Is someone chasing me? With a gun?" No - no running. But I have found that I love it and I am training for a half marathon.
So here are some pics of me.
The first one is Christmas day right before my surgery - my humiliating moment ever - I broke my mother's chair:
This is a random before picture - I'm in the middle:
This is my first 5K - otherwise known as my jello impersonation:
Here are some pics of me and my kids in my fat pants at about 10 months out from surgery:
This is me celebrating getting into a size 12 with some friends (and obviously some wine):
This is me getting my first tattoo (another reason I'm a freak):
Next is a pic my neice took of me as we were goofing around at a wedding I went to this summer:
This is a 1 year comparison picture:
This is me in my first pair of hooker boots:
And this is kind of a photographic journey. I call it the many faces of Pam:
This is my first time posting pics - i hope I am doing it right and that they come out.
