2011 - A Brief Review

2011 was an interesting year for me. Shortly after ringing in the new year, I started a new job (Feb 13th to be precise). At that point I was also working my way towards Gastric Bypass with a pre-surgery diet and exercise regiment.

As time progressed, so did my proficiency in my new position. I was gradually losing weight and waiting for the pre-approval to come through for the surgery. The date finally came July 5th and life has not been the same since.

In the first 6 months I have lost around 140lbs (more precise number tomorrow morning when I am able to use my scale at home.) I have also had to completely change my eating habits. Breakfast every morning now consists of a protein shake rather than a breakfast sandwich. My food intake so small that people look at me funny. I have also had to go "shopping" in the basement for smaller clothes. What was old is new again to me :-P

Chrissy and I again took our annual anniversary trip, returning to the Northeast. Rather than Niagara falls like last year, we hit every state in New England that we hadn't yet seen: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Rhode Island. We also made our annual Florida trip visit my family that migrated south. I am actually writing this post while Chrissy drives the first leg.

I guess that sums up 2011 pretty well. Now to take a nap till I have to drive.
