Weight is something that many folks battle with. For me blogging about it helps me track and share about my journey but most of all I do it to inspire others. I have encouraged a couple to get back tuned in on their Lapband journey, I have talked to others thinking about looking at the Lapband. I have many who have felt inspired to do little things for their health and that is great. It is not easy by any means!! I am an open book I can tell you the good, the bad, and the ugly. Something ugly today is how bruised my stomach is but I guess no pain no lose in my case.
If you are a follower, you know I am not one to ever hide the facts. I got to 301 this time when I said enough is enough. Yesterday before surgery I had gotten down to 287. So I have set many goals with rewards, getting my nails done, day trip get away with the family, and overnight with Tony, and possibly a purse when I hit 225. That is a good weight for me but I will work very carefully with my team to get to a good weight for me after that. Team that is a big thing! I have many on my team: My Lapband doctor and his staff that are all great, my primary, my social worker, my gym, and more importantly my family and friends.
I ask for encouragement and I am always willing to chat with you about my journey and such. Life is a journey, every one's is different but that is why us helping makes it easier! I will use this as a way to share my journey. Pictures from yesterday are attached!
