    Little Victories

    Here's a list of little victories I have encountered since gastric bypass surgery:

    • The steering wheel in my car is much further away now. I had to move my seat forward and lower the wheel.
    • While Christmas shopping, I realized I had walked the entire store twice over without even thinking twice. Before surgery, I would have made a map so as to only hit the areas I needed. Otherwise I would have been exhausted just walking from the parking lot.
    • I no longer look for the closest parking space.
    • Instead of looking down while walking, I hold my head high.
    • I don't plan my next meal while my mouth is still full of the previous meal.
    • My jeans are 2 (almost 3) sizes smaller.
    • I weigh less now (2 months post op) than I have in over 10 years.

    I thought I'd share some pictures of our Christmas decorations.

    A good friend had this sent to me.

    This present is for me. I wonder what it is?

    My favorite ornaments are the ones the girls made.

    My stepdad (he's also my boss) gave me this.

    Our tree. Someone needs to help Santa Bear (on the bottom left).

    I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas. May the holiday be everything you hoped for.

    I still look down while walking because I am so clumsy. I've been known to trip over my own feet. LOL True story.

    When I read your weight loss updates I always think about my friend. Girl, you have no idea of what lies ahead, the new clothes, the new attitude, Woot just wait for the spring time.

    I am happy for you!!!!!!!!
