I've stood on that scale now for exactly 200 (TWO HUNDRED!) Fridays in a row.
Each and Friday I've told you my weight.
Whether that number on the scale was good or bad - I've kept myself accountable here on this blog.
When I began my pre-op diet prior to Lap-Band surgery, I weighed 258.8 lbs.
Did I ever think that I would get below my goal weight of 145 lbs and maintain that weight for almost two and half years?
I've said it before and I'll keep saying it: The journey with the Lap-Band is 80% mental and 20% the Lap-Band.
It's a mind game.
Even on that very first Friday weigh-in, I just knew that I would get to goal.
I had to believe it and believe in myself.
This journey has been for me.
No one else.
Does that make me selfish?
Sure it does.
But it's been one of my secrets to my success: I had to lose the weight for me.
So here I am today, telling you my Friday weigh-in for the 200th time.
Three years and ten months since my very first Friday weigh-in.
And what was today's weight?
