So its my birthday today...I am 42..Yikes..can't believe I am 42..I still feel like my 20's at times.
I remember last year at this time. I was recouping from my second surgery to fix my port. I remember thinking yay me....sitting there, was this going to work, at this point I was doubting it because I hadn't really lost much weight and I was a couple months out from my original surgery with no fills and eating pretty much anything. I was pretty down. I wish I could have told myself to relax and realize that I would be 170 at my next birthday..down almost a 100lbs, I would be living in size 10's flirting with 8's I never thought I would get here...I had hoped to be under 200 but I always had doubts.
Well I don't have doubts anymore. I did not give up...and there were many times I wanted to. I kept doing what I saw so many other successful banders do. So for my next birthday..I plan on being at goal at 150. I plan to be at maintenance and I am looking forward to this new year and new me. I think this is going to be a challenging year for me, but I am ready!
