I love this thread ....

When I get to my goal weight I'd love to go to NY. I've always wanted to go there. It's a long way from my home in Australia, and right now I wouldn't be comfortable in a plane seat for that long. While I'm there I'd love to go shopping, clothes in the US are so much cheaper!

I like the idea the poster above had about the Pandora charms for each 25 kg lost ... a great motivation when you have a lot to lose.

My final goal ... just participating in life more!

New York is amazing. I live about 3 hours from New York City and I try and get down any chance I get because the city just feels so alive to me.

I have been thinking about this and I think I will finally treat myself to the lion head tattoo on my back I have been planning. It will look better when I am slimmer and will be a symbol of my strength and courage through this all!

I plan on getting plastic surgery as soon as possible

I also plan on the plastic surgery to clear up loose skin and hard-to-shift visceral fat ... but only after 8-15 months of stable weight at (or close to) GOAL.

My surgeon said there is a tendency to rush to plastic surgery support too soon before one has had a few stable months at (or near) goal. He said that these people had a higher chance of longer term dissatisfaction and adjustment in his and his colleagues' experience.

Once I get into the 100's....ten or so pounds to go....my bestie and I are going to one of those indoor trampoline park places. I met her the first day of first grade. 40 years is a long time to know someone:) Of course jumping on trampolines in your mid 40's is sort of deranged....but when we're together everything is fun and we laugh way too much:) We're also going roller skating. Bahahaha!

Oh! And I'm taking hubby on a replay of our cheapo and sentimental camping honeymoon 25 years ago this summer. We're going to a Water park and doing water slides. Funnel of Fear, here I come:) Looking very forward to playing in Lake Michigan in a swimsuit and not feeling self conscious:) Will also do some horseback riding on the lake shore, ride the carousel, go metal detecting, read books to each other and play cribbage. Looking very forward to this:)

I actually rode the Scream, which is a ride that goes up maybe 80-100 feet in the air and then drops you to the ground. The shoulder restraint came down and I had to hunch down for the seat belt to be applied. As the ride started lifting us into the air, my seatbelt popped open, and the shoulder restraint lifted up. At 12 feet in the air, I tried to jump so that I didn't fall out at the height of the ride. Everyone was screaming.

Needless to say, they stopped the ride and brought us back down. I dodged a bullet that time, and have refused to even try to ride if the seatbelt didn't EASILY fit in the future. I had taken the walk of shame a few times before, but this was my last straw.

That was 4 years ago.

I hope you and your daughter enjoy many memories of tackling the biggest and best coasters ever!

Soooo this actually made me cry. I too havent been able to get on rides with my 4 kids their 8,9,11 and 13 and thats their norm, their like ok moms not going on...they dont know it cause I'm fat only hubby knows that. Kids just think im scared. Little do they know in my 20's I rode front seat always. Wow like I never even thought of this I think itll be things like this that Im not thinking about right now that I'll be able to do.

My goal is going to the beach every weekend and a wardrobe (I feel like the wardrobe is not such a big deal cause if I dont get it after nothing fits I'll be naked lol)

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!
