Total brag post, I just had to :)

Last Friday was such a great day.  I had surgery last July 15th, and have lost 160 lbs to date.  I am training 4x a week with a trainer doing heavy weights.  I was walking into the gym and a female trainer stopped me and said your body looks beautiful!  I thought I misheard her at first :)  That alone would have made my day...

BUT then...

I went to have a follow up with my surgeon.  I have a 25 BMI, my blood work is perfect, and she actually said I don't need to lose any more weight.  I have never had a doctor say that to me in my entire life!

She said I am her model patient, and wants me to run a 5k with her practice because she is trying to get the word out there that it is not the easy fix, that it is a lifestyle, and that you have to be committed to making changes and doing the work.  I am going to try and run it!

I know my journey is just beginning, but I cannot believe it has been less than a year and how much has changed.  How I can run around with my daughter and tire her out for once.  I can clean the house easier, do yard work, I've put myself out there in so many other different ways that I never thought had anything to do with my weight.

My surgeon says she gives her patients a 5 year timeline, similar to cancer, for obesity.  If you can get to 5 years without the obesity coming back,  you are pretty safe as long as you continue with the lifestyle changes.  It is a lifestyle. 

So 4 more years to go for her timeline!!!  Just had to share the good news :)

Great job! You look amazing. Are you going to change your ticker or do you still want to lose 30 more pounds?
