As a bariatric patient, it is an amazing feeling when you hit your goals. This is a lifestyle change and we work so hard to change the way we look at food and exercise. One thing I have learned on this journeyis how important it is to have a reward system after weight loss surgery. This is a long process and I truly believe we must reward ourselves for the progress we are making.
Yesterday, I woke up and stepped on thescale and did not see any movement. I felt discouraged and sat there and evaluated everything I had done the day before to see what I needed to do differently. I was really frustrated because I have been working extremely hard. I went on with my day and continued to make healthy choices, even though I was feeling really down.
