Congratulations, Ron! You are such an inspiration to us all!!!..
Aww... Thanks Guys!!!! All of you are so wonderful! It was weird that all of it hit me all at once.. All in all it's been a great year and I am glad I have all of your help and encouragement on here.. it means a lot!.
This is all a real.
Process. I am planning to attend my very first "live" support group next week at my hospital... I am hoping it's a positive experience for all that show up. I decided I'd like to see how they work and what they actually talk about.. and maybe exchange some ideas and adcice.. It should be interesting..
For those that asked I went from around 320 to 165.. in about 5-6 months.. it came off fast and have been beyond my goal of 185 for quite some time. I think the hardest thing I have had to deal with is other people's reactions.. and their worry because they saw me lose it so fast.. I can understand that..
Thanks again!!.. You are all wonderful people!!!!!..
Wow, I hadn't realised you had lost 140 lbs in 5-6 months! That is a tremendous shock to the body let alone the mind. No wonder you are feeling so emotional. Apart from the fact that you have succeeded so well at something that you did for yourself..
Sometimes when we take the time to reflect that's the only time we really consider how BIG the achievement has been..
I've been following your posts and comments and you have really worked on the mind thing and the relationship to eating. You are such a positive influence on this group..
Sincere congratulations on all you've achieved in such a short time and looking forward to following your future achievements..
Congrats on your successful first year! What an amazing story. Thanks for being here to cheer us newbies on!.
WOW..it just seems like yesterday right. My surgiversary is coming up at the end of March. I just can't believe it..so different than the person we used to be..it's unbelievable, exciting and scary all at the same time!! Congrats to you....
You look fabulous dahling!!!.
Wow Ron, Congrats to you for your great success! In my short time here I have noticed your advice and comments are truly helpful and your story is inspiring. Thanks for being there for us and good luck on your "live" group too!.
