I am Truly Grateful

Hello, Its been a month since I posted to this blog. First let me say that I am truly thankful for all God has done for me. First and foremost that I am a child of the one true King. I am grateful for my salvation and God's gift of eternal life. I am thankful for all my family and friends that have been there for me during my weight loss lifestyle change journey.

It has been a very busy month. We have Halloween and Thanksgiving. As far as WLS (weight loss surgery) goes I have been in a plateau for 3-4 weeks. I was sitting at 314. Just sitting. Not gaining, not loosing.  I determined to not cheat and to just keep going forward and pressing on.  And I am glad I did. This morning I weighed myself and I believe I have broken my plateau.  I am down to 311. Determination and perseverance pays off. I am still in excellent health and am not having any negative side-affect from the sleeve surgery.

One further development in the past month has to do with Becky.  She has a boyfriend.  Becky and I went to his family's house for Thanksgiving Dinner last night.  Becky has expanded her limited menu.  She tried 6 different foods last night and liked some of them and tolerated all of them.  She is so funny. We haven't been able to get her to try new foods for quite sometime.  It took a boyfriend to get her to expand her tastes.
