I hope you are all up dancing because guess who hit her goal weight today??? THIS CHICK RIGHT HERE!!! I feel like I have just won the freaking lottery. While I was completely satisfied with where I was...there is just something mental about hitting your goal weight. I was scared that 120 was too small. Too thin. Too low. I was probably never going to make it. Right? I mean, we have all been there. Set goals. Tried with all our might like the little engine that could only to never make it to the station. Or even worse yet, to hit that wonderful goal and then see our train back up and just make a mockery out of all the hard work we had put into it. Our blood, sweat, and tears....just like that violated by regain. Not anymore honey. I have really NO fear of regaining. I have a plan. A good plan. A solid plan. I weigh every day morning and night. I make conscious decisions about what I eat. Is it good for me? Does my body need it? Will it help or hinder my weight loss goals? Do I want to waste the limited room in my stomach on it?
I am still trying to tone up. But I am looking fabulous. I am feeling fabulous. And I have SUCCEEDED in hitting my goal. Will I lose any more weight? Honestly, I am not actively trying any more. As I told my husband my set point is 125. As long as my weight stays below that number I am content. If I pass it, I will put myself in gear to get back down to the 120 mark. I plan to stay accountable. I will still be here cheering on my friends in their victories, helping them in their time of need, being a cheerleader, a listener, a friend...I love this place and I love you all!
I want everyone out there to feel how I feel! This surgery saved me. I went from being so miserable and feeling so depressed when I looked at myself to checking myself out! I am not conceited...I am proud of how I far I have come. I love being me. I love that little bitty sleeve belly of mine. I look taller and younger. It was absolutely all worth it!!
I am attaching a bathroom selfie from work today. The day I hit goal!! The day I won my WLS lottery!!
