Small Victory At 2 Months Post Op!



Recommended Posts

I don't consider myself a "success story" yet, because I have a long way to go until my goal, and a lot to learn. But I wanted to share one way in which my life has completely changed since my weight loss.

I stopped going to theme parks about 4 years ago due to being repeatedly turned away from rides because of my size. However, yesterday I went to a theme park for the first time in years and was able to fit on EVERY SINGLE RIDE! I rode a rollercoaster!!! No more panic attack waiting to see if the bar would fit over my stomach or if I could squeeze into the seats. It was a dream come true for me. Here I am yesterday:

Little things like this make the hard work worth it.

Today is my 2 month post op! Went for my check up lost a total of 32pounds! I'm sooooo happy! I'm wearing some capris today that I haven't fit into for the last two years. Going to knotts berry farm next month so I feel more confident I'll fit too! I'm having a pool party this Saturday and feel great!!!! :)

Bravo! That is a great VICTORY! I know that dread and the embarrassment of having to walk away because the bar wouldn't close. I am soooo looking forward to getting on every rollercoaster and ride imaginable when the weight finally comes off. (banded 6/26)

It's amazing the number of things in life that we missed out on, big and small. Life is meant to be lived, this is our chance, Let's Take It!!

Continued success!

I've been pinned into rides too and wondered, "Geez, it can't be me. Plenty of folks bigger than me walking around this park...." not realizing that none of us fit. Size does matter.

Congratulations! I'm in MN, too, and can't wait until I can go to ValleyFair and ride the rides again with my kids! Maybe next summer?

I met one of my goals this week, too. I wanted to go into a mass retailer and put on a pair of jeans that fit. I did it! I about cried. Of course, I put them back on the shelf and headed to the thrift store and found 3 pairs for the price of that one!

Thank you for the support!! It's nice to be able to share these victories with people who have been there. When you have been fighting weight for so long, the little things like this mean so much. We will all attain our goals!

Congrats Sarah.
