Today is my one year bandiversary!! It marks a major milestone for me.
I was just re-reading last year's post where we had to get up and get going that day day. I had forgotten we got into an argument in the lobby of the hospital. Funny!!
For me it's been exciting. It's been challenging. It's been difficult. It's been amazing. It's been an eye opener. It's been a struggle. It's been the best thing I could have done for myself and yes I would do it again in a heart beat!!!
I will tell you some of the rough patches for me this year have been logging my foods when I don't feel like it. Pushing through plateaus when I normally would have given up. And learning my band. Taking the time to really listening to what my band is saying (like I don't want more food!!!) then life does become better.
You also throw in a major surgery with an almost complete unfill for a month in this year and I just am still amazed at how great this year has been.
I don't usually share my beginning weight because I am so very ashamed of it. But I will often tell people how much I've lost to date. Also, keep in mind I'm going from my highest weight at the clinic and I lost 25 lbs before surgery.
This morning 115.8 :) So since my surgery a year ago I've lost 90.8 lbs.
I'm so grateful. So very, very grateful. I have an awesome support system. I have a God who loves me and I (and you too) can talk to at anytime. I have a great clinic.
Now onto the next phase. Get these few last lbs off (they are going to be the most difficult) and start scheduling skin removal surgeries.
Oh yes, this girl right here is having some work done!!!
Thanks to all my blogging friends!! I hope we get to meet in real life one day!!
