WOOHOO! How's everyone doing? I am still in love with my sleeve!
I didn't realize that yesterday was my FIVE YEAR SURGIVERSARY!!!!! For me this has been a long, winding process, and has been proof positive that surgery is not a magic pill. In January 2012 I had the surgery with high hopes that it would be my miracle to lose the excess weight I had wanted to rid myself of for years. Although I initially had some moderate success (25 +/- lbs), I found myself in a holding pattern, and couldn't understand how come others who had the surgery around the same time as me were having great results and I was being left behind. I hid my surgery from others, and it added even more stigma to my obesity in my mind.
Two years ago next month, I walked into a WW meeting, and decided to make myself accountable for what I ate and how much I moved. I forgave myself for not being perfect, and made the commitment I wouldn't be in a weight loss competition with anyone but myself. I don't think anyone else ever felt like they were competing--it was my thought process! It has been slow, and the weight is coming OFF!!!!!! Last week I celebrated moving from a BMI of obese to overweight!!!!
N2DVN, you look fabulous! Congratulations on 5 years!
