Hello Kathryn - Congratulations, how excited you must be right now? After all the months of waiting, researching, healing, etc, to finally be able to see the "results" on the scales is nothing short of fantastic. I've been through it myself and I know it's a long and hard journey but I also know the rewards more then outweigh the obstacles. When the weight finally starts to come off you regain a new and wonderful sense of freedom. It puts all the challenges along the way into perspective and you realize with each pound you've lost, inner strength was regained. Remember to <b>CELEBRATE</b> all the "special moments" along the way, big or small. Too many people focus only on <i>numbers</i>, ie. pounds lost. There are so many "moments" to look forward to and embrace on this journey - don't let any of them slip by. Enjoy your new healthier life, you've more then earned it!! <i> "The key to happiness is dreams, the key to success is making those dreams come true"</i> .....Hugs and Smiles : )
As of today, this morning, roughly one week (8 days) since my lap RNY, I have lost a grand total of
(drum roll please)
I was such a doubter. Just last night I was saying to my husband: I don't think it's working for me...(I don't know why, really, it's a psychological thing I guess) and then today, come to find out, I have lost 25 lbs!!!!!!!!
I'm just shocked and thrilled and happy and relieved.
Thanks for letting me share!
