In theory, I'm getting on a plane in several hours. I have 900 things that need to be done (which means about 2 will actually get done, as per usual when I go to a conference). This one is different though, this time I get to meet all these amazing people that have helped me through my journey and shared their own journey with me. It's been over 2 years since my sleeve and I still can't believe that I did it. I made it. This weekend is a celebration of that.
We did it. -- because I didn't do it alone. I had a lot of help. And I can't wait to hug those people that were there for me the whole way.
Icing on the cake? I woke up this morning to this:
I haven't seen my actual goal weight since back surgery; although I've stayed well within maintenance range. So, this is a good sign. A sign that this weekend is going to be, in the words of my nearly-13-year-old... epic.
It's been interesting these past few months since hitting goal as my body kind of settles around a certain weight. I'm just kind of letting it do it's thing, while making sure I'm getting enough food. I find that, if left to my own devices, I would forget to eat most days. The flip side is to make sure I'm getting moderate carbs. Too many and the snack monster comes out and too little and I start to feel off kilter.
Ah, fun times.
In the meantime... see ya in CA, baby!
