Whilst i have a weight goal that i know i will be comfortable with, its a long term one which is always at the back of my mind. I also have had lots of short term goals with regards to the distance i can walk, initially it was to get to a bridge which was 100 meters away (no that far on retrospect however this was far for me at the time as i couldn't walk without having to stop as i was completely exhausted!). I have built up the distance to now being able to walk 6-7 klm straight and i now do that twice a day! The power of the mind with a tonne of determination (to never let myself go backwards) is amazing.

My surgeon and NUT have never mentioned or asked what my goal weight would be, so one day I asked them why they never suggested a weight. Their response was that they didn't concern themselves with numbers. They were more interested in me being healthy and happy. So I set my own little goals centered around being healthy and happy. I don't stress about the weight. My current goal is to climb as many 14ers (14,000 ft mountains in Colorado) as I can in one year. I have climbed over 8 in the last 3 months.

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
