GOAL!!!

At my appointment Tuesday, my surgeon and I decided I could stop at 133 and maintain.  I was happy, he was happy, my body seemed to like the 135 range, I was fine with not making it to 130.

Then this morning I stepped on the scale:


 

Holy crap!  I am stunned.

Thanks so much to everyone here who has helped along the way, and particularly thanks to my fellow "Cirangle-ites," who have given me so much advice and support both here and in person.

Since going back to work this fall, I have not been on OH as much as I was before, but I do check in from time to time to see how things are going and throw in my 2 cents if no one has already said what I'd have posted.  This is an amazing place, and while sometimes there's a bit of drama, I wouldn't be here without the support of everyone here. :)

Ignore my very messy closet.  I blame my husband. :)

Dr. C said a 7 lb range?  Maybe the range is bigger for women thanks to our awesome hormones?  I can tell you it is not uncommon for me to gain 4 lbs one day, then lose 5 a few days later.
