I was trying hard not to get discouraged, I know from others on this site that stalls happen but I have been so lucky and have never gone more than 2 weeks without losing. When week 3 came and still no lose I tried not to get discouraged. I was so excited when I weighed today and I lost those last 4 pounds that put me at goal, well at the goal me and dr thought was realistic i will continue to try to lose and will stop when I feel like my body is ready.
I started this journey at being super morbidly obese. I was taking medication for diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesteral. I am now considered 'overweight" (LOL) and no longer take meds!
I am healthy, happy and enjoying life. I have missed out on so much, but not anymore!!
If you are considering WLS I am here to say go for it, but please remember this is not easy. You are only going to get out of it what you put into it. I donot regret my choice at all,only wish I would have done sooner!
My one year anniversary is coming up, I will post more than. Thank you to all of the wonderful, supportive people on this site. Y'all are lifesavers!
Congratulation! What awesome success you've had!
