Two month surgiversary!

Small victories.

That is my main focus.

I have hit my health goals this far. My most recent labs have now shown that I am no longer a type 2 diabetic. That was my main reason for decided to pursue this VSG surgery in the beginning. That is a huge accomplishment for me.

Some non-scale victories I have had are clothes fitting loser and being down 2 pant sizes. I can move easier and I am currently sitting in my bed Indian style as I type this, something I was not able to do two months ago. Chasing my nieces and nephew around and playing with them has become something I do with ease and I am not out of breathe within the first lap through the house. I can fit into booths at restaurants without feeling stuck or trapped. Sitting in a movie theater chair isn’t something I dread because for the first time in years I am not longer spilling into the other seat. And one of the coolest things is that I most recently found my collar bones!! These all may seem so little but they are huge NSV’s for me and have pushed me through the moody, frustrated days.

Today is two months since I had a life changing surgery. A surgery that has been a tool I needed to get back to living the life I put on hold when I was almost 400 pounds.

While my weight has never swayed or hindered my confidence it did effect my everyday life. I am proud that I took the steps to move forward. I am proud that I was able to realize that I had a problem and I needed help getting back to a healthy weight.

Going to the gym has become a stress relief. On the days I’m angry and frustrated that I had to change my life and I forget why I made these life changes the gym reminds me that I’ve come so far and I will keep going further as long as I keep my drive and remember my why’s.

I did this for myself, no one else.

Current weight: 307
