Thank you for sharing.  That to me is success.  Not just losing the weight but keeping it off and being a normal size five years out.  And successfully dealing with a regain.  I want to be like you when I grow up.

 Thank you for this post. I am at almost 3 weeks out and am so sick of liquids. I also had a set back with an infection and a second surgery. Your post reminds me KEEP MY EYE ON THE PRIZE!

THANKS!

Bridie,

Thank you for your kind words. Also, please know that were you are right now is the hardest part of the journey. It really will get better, so as say keep your eye on the prize! Something that I sometimes share with newbies in my support that seems to help them, is to create a 3x5 card box filled with all of the reasons that you drove you to do this. Then, take out those cards and look them over when you are struggling; it can help to put into focus the bigger picture. 

Wishing you continued success on your own journey,
