I HAVE worked this tool!

Sign in to follow this  


Since I've been one who has told most everyone about my surgery, I usually respond to compliments with something like, "I was so fortunate to have this procedure." Well, today as I was walking down the hall, a colleague passed me and said again how amazed she was with my transformation. She asked me how I was continuing to do it and of course I mentioned the surgery. She replied with the fact she knows about the surgery, but many people have surgery and do not succeed. It made me stop and realize that I have worked this tool and I'm proud of that.


While I am definitely not perfect, I make decisions daily about food and exercise to make this a lifestyle and not just a temporary thing. Now I still feel that the sleeve is mostly responsible for my success, but am starting to feel that I played a big role and can be proud too.

You sure as heck should be and can be proud of your success. I firmly believe that having the sleeve is only part of the equation. The majority of this journey relies on US, and our determination.

Many cheers to you DeeDee ! ! !

I pray that I will be able to reach the same peace with myself a year from now that you have reached. To be glad that you made such a drastic (positive) change in your lifestyle and feel pride in yourself for following through has got to be an awesome feeling. Oh Lord, my mouth is watering again :-}

Thanks for all of your great updates and pics of your personal journey. It's a wonderful resource for those of us who haven't crossed over yet.

I would say the opposite - the sleeve helps but what YOU do with it it at least 75% of the result. I think you should be damn proud and not sell yourself short of your huge accomplishment. Congratulations!
