Your 'Aha' weight-loss moments
One of the main reasons I decided to have the surgery is because my father is the only living male on his side of the family, all lost to heart attack/disease or cancer at very young ages. I do not want to be added to the list. I have never and will never regret having the surgery and am very proud of myself and the team of doctors who saved my life.
Since losing the weight, I am full of energy and absolutely hate to sit at home. Before, it did not bother me to come straight home from work and sit in front of the TV until it was time to go to bed and now I have to make myself come home, just to go to bed! Yes, losing the weight has boosted my self confidence tremendously, but actually knowing that I finished something that I had started makes me feel even better about myself!
