Official starting numbers and before pictures and thank yous

I would like to start by thanking all the new followers on my blog for their lovely comments. I woke up about 20 mins ago and found all of them. It really was a nice way to start this first day on my journey.

I now also have a lot of adventures to follow, which is great! I know I am only a newbie but if you have any questions or you need anu support you can either send a comment or a private message I will be happy to help.

As much as I hate those pictures, I will be happy to compare them to my future ones... my no make up face makes me look quite tired as well

Here are the starting numbers:

Weight: 146,6 kg ( 323.2 lbs)

Boobs:127 cm

Chest:113 cm

Waist:114.5 cm

Hips:157 cm


Upper arm:49 cm

Have a nice week, I will keep you updated on how the pre op diet is going.
