    Default I made goal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    At 9 mos and 2 days post op I hit my surgeon's goal of 170lbs. I have never really been tied to the number on the scale, but I have to admit it feels good to accomplish the task. I have experienced so many "non-scale victories" in this past year that have been incredibly motivating and those really mean so much more to me than the number on the scale. The most recent was being taken entirely off medication for high blood pressure. My two biggest health goals were to no longer have high blood pressure or be pre-diabetic. I can check those both of my list of health issues! You see my father, who I adored, died from obesity related illness at 70 which was way too young for us to lose him. His illnesses started probably around my age, late 40's, with elevated BP and Diabetes and progressed from there. I saw a future of illness if I did not do something to change. That was my biggest motivator for having WLS.

    Some of my other NSV's include; wearing the smallest size I can remember - even smaller than I was all through high school, being comfortable sitting with my legs crossed, being called "tiny" and "little" by people, having much more energy & stamina on a daily basis, better overall mood, enjoying exercise, having done a 5K, eating the healthiest I ever have and enjoying it, cooking the majority of my meals and not eating fast-food, taking stairs over elevators regularly, not worrying about "close" parking spots - I can walk it no problem.

    I hope this serves to motivate others. I was hesitant to have this surgery for several years, but it was in the back of my mind and I couldn't decide. When I decided that I needed to make a change and put my mind and heart into it things fell into place. This tool has helped me in ways I didn't even imagine were possible. I've shown great discipline which I wasn't even sure I was capable of and these changes continue to motivate me to make sure this is a sustainable change. I love my new life!

    Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement. That is the one thing I had no idea I would experience is the change in my overall mood. I have such a positive outlook and really feel great every day! We all have our moments, but this journey has truly changed me in so many ways. I am blessed!
