another milestone

I've officially lost 75.4 lbs as of today!  Here are a couple more before and after pictures of me.  Although I'm thrilled I'm more than halfway to my initial goal, my body is starting to look as though someone let the air out of me.  Like a balloon that's been inflated and deflated 30 times over.  I'm not all that upset over it, though.  I know that that's what 20+ years of dieting, losing weight, and regaining weight does to the body. And I'm almost 40 now; I'm not in my 20s anymore, when things bounce back to where they should be.  I've always said I wouldn't get plastic surgery after all the weight is gone, because losing the weight is all that's important.  But I'm starting to think about it.  I'll see how I feel when I get to my goal.

December 2013, during the first week of my pre-op diet.

Another before:  at my friend's picnic during the summer of 2013.  
I really dislike this picture, but it's reality; this is what I looked like.

After:  75 lbs lost
This shirt is pretty big on me now.
