Onderland – WLS

Okay – there is this place called Onederland.  I haven’t seen it in a very long time (like approximately 19 years).  I didn’t realize what it was that is until my Gastric Sleeve Surgery support group peers were posting that they had reached it.  Onederland: When your weight is under 200 pounds.

I have been at 202 or 200.6 for the last week.  I was really hopeful after our trip to St. Augustine that with all of the walking we did it would boost my metabolism.  I am not sure if that did it or if slow and steady wins the race.  But I will take it.

I reached it yesterday morning.   198.8.  Jump up and down, take it.  I don’t want to EVER be over 200 again.  This is such a milestone for me.  Honestly, Stephen (our youngest) hasn’t ever seen me this small.  My heavens.  Just typing that out is shocking to me.  It has been forever for me to see this weight.

My goal that I set with my doctor is 190.  I am eight/nine pounds away from goal. I know that I won’t stop here.  But I don’t know where I will end up.  I just want to be healthy.

So…what goals have you met?  Have you set any goals?  So now to beat my time in a 5k, right? Well, and to see 190 lbs.
