Proof is in the Pictures

Hello my little love muffins. I am still lost but at least trying to be happy! I went and bought a new bikini yesterday and realized in my self destructive/soul searching haze, I have neglected to post 140 pound down pictures! SILLY ME!


So here they are, for your viewing pleasure. I am weighing in around 187, maybe a smidge less. I am wearing a size 14 and feeling pretty good.






Makes you wanna salute something doesnt it? hhahahhah

You're my new hero. Reading about your experiences have silenced any doubts I had that this is the right thing to do. Thanks for being so willing to tell it all. BTW, you look fantastic!

  60. Amy, I am reading your blog from both ends now - Currently in the middle of October 2009 -I don't know if you want any advice from me since I am so new to your blog - but you might reread your blogs of August 11, august 18th, and Sept 18th(Dress up NIght) - What has changed in your relationship that has changed your feelings this much?

    ReplyDelete
  61. just a p.s. - the worst part about reading from the beginning forward is that so many of the vlogs are no longer available and I miss getting to see your awesome personality in action - please promise me when I get caught up you will make a vlog just for me.
    Also I worry because I am having so much fun reading that when I finally do catch up I will die from anticiaption waiting for the next post -aaaahhh

    ReplyDelete
  62. holy catfish!!! girlfriend, you are hawt!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I am one day post op, in lots of pain and very bloated, and I have to tell you - this is the best possible pain killer ever!! You look so AMAZING! I can tell you not only "lost weight" but you really worked your butt off exercise wise. Abs do not lie! You should be a Lap Band poster girl!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Great work Amy! I'm wearing a 14 now too, but my tummy looks nothin like that, I guess I really do need to start exercising huh? Super cute bikini too!

    ReplyDelete
  65. You look fanFREAKINGtabulous!

    I am so jealous, I am 25 pounds lighter than you but look nowhere near as good. Life's not fair :).

    Been thinking about you!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Damn, girl! I am having my band on Tuesday, so I'm really new at this. I hope I look half as good as you do! You are my inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hey Amy, I just caught up with you after a couple months. I am sorry to hear about your life change troubles. Just remember: Be true to yourself. As far as these rocking pics go: I AM PRINTING THEM AND PUTTING THEM IN MY AGENDA FOR DAILY INSPIRATION! I will be looking at your Bikini Butt every day! xoxo Linda from Detroit!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Ok, I need to know what kind of ceremonial or sacrifical dance you did for the Tummy Gods....WOW. I pray that my stomach comes even sort of close to looking like that after I lose the weight.
    You look amazing. Despite everything that you are going through right now you must be SO FRICKEN proud of yourself. *APPLAUSE*

    XOXO,
    Amy

    ReplyDelete
  69. Wow, you look amazing in that bikini. I wish I looked good in a bikini. My bikini days are over unless I get that tummy tuck i'd like. Anyway, I read your blog about what's going on with you and I'm so sorry to hear. Hope you figure it out soon and feel better.
