Well, it's one-year almost to the hour that my life changed with the WLS. It's been a challenging year but a great year. Although the scales may not be quite where I'd have liked them to be at this time, I keep looking at what I have done and remind myself that the rest will come. Since surgery, the scales have come down about another 80lbs.
This week I looked back at some of the goals I set prior to surgery and to date have reached about half of them. A few weeks ago, we were doing some work in our kitchen and for the first time that I can remember, I was able to climb a ladder without a problem to paint the walls & ceiling; up and down off the floor to paint baseboards, etc. I have more energy than I can remember having in so many years it's unimaginable. I now have a job I love going to that a year ago I couldn't have imagined having.
So, as I look forward to the next year, I'll have to set myself some new challenges and get ready for another fantastic year.
This year, one of the biggest things I learned about myself was how much my friends - both cyber and face-to-face - mean to me. So for my sparkfriends, thanks for your support this year!
