Remembering Life 2 Years Ago Today

It is hard to belive it has been 2 years since my surgery. I got on the scale this morning and was at my normal, 142, which made me very happy. So far I'm doing good with maintaining, I just pray I can make that same comment in another 2 years.

I can run
I can run up and down stairs 4-5 times in a row without huffing
I can paint my own toe nails
I can get up off the floor without having to use my hands or bracing myself
I can get in/out of the car like a normal person
I can run errands (we're talking 6-7 stores) and not think twice about it
I can feel confident when walking around
I can smile for no reason at all because I'm proud of myself
I can do anything I put my mind to

2 years ago today I made a choice to change my life and boy oh boy has my life changed!

Wow great post and so inspiring for someone who is considering this surgery. I'm just skeered, LOL. I can relate to the huffing and puffing and not being able to paint my toenails though. Thanks, I needed this today!

Congrats Amber!!!! You should be very proud of yourself. So many think this surgery is a quick fix, but in all reality it is anything but. Thank you for being a success story not just in the first year when weight loss is so easy but 2 years later!!!
