Welcome to the goalies bench! I love it here, and so many of us fit because we are all smaller! I haven't ridden a horse since I lost weight, but I gotta tell you, the amusement park rides are so much more fun now that I'm not stuffed in the seat like a sausage. And I don't have the fear that I can't fit at all!

Thanks Lynda. I like the Goalie's Bench... That's fun. I was making amusement park plans for my nephew's annual visit this summer...can't wait.

So I made it to the goal posts. Any more lost will be nice but I've achieved what I set out to do (and maybe more). Here are the stats:

Weight at start of journey: 420

Total loss: 240

Total days since I made the decision and started surgery: 689

Weight loss before surgery: 51

Weight loss since surgery on 10/10/11: 189

Average lbs per week: 2.4

%body weight lost: 57%

Pics later everyone. I'm going to take a horseback riding lesson and Celebrate today!!! I made it!

Now the work starts: Next chapter.. Maintenance: The pizza Strikes Back

Congrats on your success, Terry! You've worked hard to earn that spot on the "goalies bench"! And what a terrific way to Celebrate your success- hope you enjoy! :)

Thanks OWS. It was a great experience. I'm going to keep at it. English riding seems to be a hell of a core workout based on my day after soreness...might have to get some padded shorts too...hahaha

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
