So I think we all know we are here to lose weight and begin this journey... for me I need to be healthy again, but what are you looking forward to the most... I keep talking about being active again with my husband and things I look forward to doing with my daughter but really deep down no joke, I will be excited to tie my shoes without feeling like I am going to roll forward and pass out... how about you guys what is that one thing that really keeps you determined? I know the hard work we have been doing to get to this point it is with in reach and I am so so so excited and ready!

I can not wait until I can cross my legs like a lady and feel comfortable.

I just want to feel better and have more energy and confidence when I walk into a room!

I agree I am so used to trying to hide when I walk in a room, but so clumsy I usually trip walking in... but it would be refreshing to feel that confidence of I am here!

I hear you about bending over to tie shoes and also being more active and having energy to do things with my husband and daughter. That is the one thing that keeps me determined-I am doing this so I can be around longer to grow old with my husband and be there as long as I can for my daughter

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Think I am hitting a stall-ish period. Weight loss is def slowing and I need a kickstart to get it going again....any suggestions?

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
