I am so very excited.... & more than a little nervous!
I've scheduled my surgery, I've lost over 30lbs & have passed my surgery goal weight by almost 20lbs!
(Goal was below 320lbs & I'm currently at 305!)
As my surgical date is a little under 2 months away, my new goal is to be below 300lbs by the time of my surgery.

I've found several things to keep me motivated:
I bought a pair of pants two sizes too small, a pair I so wanted. (They now fit!)  As this worked so well, I bought another pair two sizes too small.
(Thank you eBay, or it would be TOO expensive!) 

I set a goal for myself each week, usually about 2lbs. If I reach the goal, I treat myself to an audiobook. (Which feeds my new walking habit!)  

I meal prep like an absolute fiend. Those audiobooks also come in handy when I'm prepping.

I also very much a huge fan of Sistema Tupperware!! They are amazing!
I've also struggled:
I've binged. It was an episode that filled me with shame & then started a cycle of eating absolute garbage.
Breaking that cycle has been very hard. 
It seems simplistic, but eating clean, healthy food helps with the shame, as does keeping to a routine, & lastly journaling... that helps.
