A Quick update :) Motivation is the key

It is almost a month since the last time I posted, and I'm doing well on my new goal. My dh and I have been dieting together, isn't that always easier? He's continued to lose more than me, but I've broken through the plateau that always spelled the end of weight loss for me. I generally get to that weight, hang out a pound or two above, hit it, and have even gotten a pound or so under, then bounce back up. Of course, most of the time, I was the only one trying to diet. So my dh gets my heartfelt thanks this time.

But the real motivation is getting that surgery done. As my body mass goes down, I'm sure the pain will too, and that might make the motivation slip away as well. Hope not, because this is the turning point for what the rest of my life will be like. A decade or more of health or sliding into poorer and poorer health. :) or :(
