It's been awhile since I've blogged anything. I'm doing great and hanging in there at my goal weight. I've come a long way and I recently got up the nerve to follow through with my tatoo that I promised myself when I hit my goal weight! I'm really happy that I finally decided to do it, it makes me feel like I'm truly celebrating my victory! I remember when I posted a thread asking my fellow team members if I should do it, because my husband wasn't really supportive of the idea. Everyone answered that I should do it if I really wanted it for myself and the funny thing is - now that I've done it, I think my husband loves it just as much as I do!!
I'm 1.5 years post op and I look at myself in the mirror and I can see past the lumps, bumps and sagging skin to the person I wanted to be for so long. I'm still so glad that I made the decision to have my RNY. It changed my life and I'm healthier and happier from it.
I believe I will always be a work in progress - I can't afford to forget how much WORK it took me to get where I'm at today. I sometimes make bad food choices (just like anyone else) but I know that I can't make them on a regular basis. It would be so easy to slip back into old habits. People now tell me that they can't remember the "Old Donna", they can't picture me fat anymore. That's great, but I can still remember how I looked and felt and that's what keeps me motivated to stay on track.
