Every day has something good in it. Sometimes it's hard to see at first. But once we take a moment we can see that there was likely at least one good thing. Maybe someone you admire told you that you're doing awesome. Or you got a new job. Could be that you got home and your kids cleaned the house...it could happen.

For me, there were several good things about today. The traffic was good coming to the office. The weather was so gorgeous today and I got a nice walk in. Also, not having any "picky pouch" episodes has been awesome.

Your turn!

    After a couple busy weeks with doctor appointments, spring break with a chatty kid at home, easter outings, and big family get togethers I'm having a quiet week at home alone and I'm LOVING it. I still have to do our business taxes, but I can listen to my favourite music, drink decaf all day, and I don't have to talk to anyone or answer any questions... bliss!

    I got up when my alarm went off this morning and got in 6500 steps before heading to work. When I got home I only needed 2000 steps to complete my 10,000 for the day.

    Great thread idea!! My daughter has been fighting riding her bike without her training wheels for 2 summers now. Today she got on and rode a mile and a half with me running with her. It was awesome!

    First night of golf league for me. Lots of people who have not seen me since September (80 pounds ago) and who I have known for years. A ton of positive reinforcement from people who are genuinely happy to see me healthier than they have ever seen me. Played a crappy round of golf, but that's irrelevant compared to how I felt seeing my friends.

    Yesterday: I timed my 300m swim at 9.5 mins and feel great about it and the sun and water felt really nice.
    Today: I put on some Old Navy 44 waist jeans that I bought 4 years ago because they were a good goal and on sale for $5. This is the first time I've been able to put them on. They fit a little snug but they aren't uncomfortable and buttoned easily. Yay!

    had to move down from my 3x shirts to the 2x ones, and they're kinda loose. so cleaned out part of the closet by removing all the 3x clothes. luckily I have several different sizes in there cause I hate to throw anything out.

    I enjoyed the archaeological dig through my clothes that I grew out of and never threw out. It was fun to pull out stuff from 10-12 years ago and have it fit or be loose.

    What wonderful days you all have had!! The "downsizing" and getting your grooves on! Rob hit his goal! Y'all are amazing and inspiring people!

    So, today the best thing that happened to me is I am getting a promotion! This means I will also be moving to a different building. I will have a longer commute, but the atmosphere of the new office will make it all worth it. And if I decide the commute is too awful to drive, I will start taking the bus. Such exciting things await me!

    This morning's weigh-in has me down 125 lbs since my last pre-op weigh-in; only 41 to go to get to goal. I would say I'm in a damn good mood today. LOL

    I'm officially on a regular diet today post-surgery! I had a third of a baked sweet potato with butter from Longhorn Steakhouse (no sugar) for lunch- not sure what to try first for dinner but I plan to take things slow. I had someone I hadn't seen in a while compliment me on my weight loss (38 lbs. lost as of today from pre-op clear liquids).

    Now if we can just get rid of all the rain down here so I can get out and walk in the evenings, life will be grand.

    Thanks for this thread, My family is doing well. My headaches are getting better, I accomplished a lot at work, I am at a plateau with weight loss but my coworker took long to say hello back because she didn't recognize me at first because I've lost so much weight and she said I keep getting skinnier & skinnier. Good times!

    Fit into some old pants today that are 6 sizes smaller than pre-surgery. Also, today is one month since I had the Sleeve. Best thing I've ever done for my health.

    Thank you all for the support and good info. :)

    It's only been a couple of weeks since my surgery and today has been the second day I didn't have to stop what I was doing and take a nap in the middle of the day. It feels so good to be getting my energy back.

    Yesterday I could finally get my wedding rings off - they'd been stuck on there for the past three years or so. At my highest, I was afraid I was going to have to get them cut off (the rings, not my fingers - haha). Now I can get them cleaned - they're filthy!
