Weight Loss Odyssey in South Dallas

January 2011: The single best decision of my life was having a VSG -- vertical sleeve gastrectomy -- in December 2009. I'm down about about 135 pounds so far. Now, a year out from surgery, I need some help to achieve that last 50 pounds weight loss.

Update November 2011: Down about 35 pounds on Spark; still want to lose about 20 more. Stick with the plan, it works!

Update July 2012: Officially on "maintenance" -- trying to hold my weight between 140-145 until skin-removal surgery in December 2012. I'm down a total of 175 pounds right now, and with the skin-removal will probably be close to 200 pounds down from my high weight -- almost 2/3 of my total body weight. I'm amazed just typing it out....

Hi Katey! Thank you for the comment on my blog. I am finally...finally starting to get excited again. It feels like delays lead to so much disappointment, but now the end is in sight. Thank you for all your inspiration and encouragement. You look so happy now, it's amazing what a new lease on life the sleeve can give.

Much love and Hugs, -Rose

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.

You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

"It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up." - Vince Lombardi

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.

Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

"Never, never, never, never give up." - Winston Churchill
