My oldest son has lost 104 lbs since November of 2016. No surgery, just self discipline and planning. I am incredibly proud of and happy for him. He inspires me to know it is possible. Yes, I have read other stories of weight loss being 100+ lbs. Some with surgeries some without.
I told my husband, if our son can do it- so can I. My husband believes my weight issues are due to medications I'm on. I told him I'm continuing to go for my own 100 lb weight loss . He said he would start working on more promotions and start saving. I asked- what for? Why?? He said- for skin surgery!
Now, I think he was attempting to be supportive. And I know my skin isn't as elastic as my son's. But...delivery...or choice of words...made me feel weird. Almost feeling he won't want to look at me or like what he sees when I do lose 100 lbs. I'm pretty sure I'm wrong thinking that. I'm sure he was trying to be positive for me. I think he meant it as a big reward.
I'm not sure I'd remove skin for vanity sake. I would for comfort or medical reasons.
I'm going to give my husband the benefit of the doubt. I am going to keep moving forward. I am believing I am on the road to doing this. I have a trip in mind as my big reward. And he will be there with me.
Here's to continuing on in a positive forward direction. Standing tall( I laugh cuz I'm 5'1"), chin up, looking ahead. If and when I have a road block I will tell myself to think not react. Then choose what keeps me pointed the right way.
