I think for those of us on this journey we should remove this word from our vocabulary. I believe this has negative affect on our psyche. We seem to use this word in front of the amount of pounds lost in a week, month, or longer period of time. This word automaticly shows disappointment in our accomplishments. The way I look at this journey is this; I needed WLS to help win the battle against my weight which I was losing for years. What I needed to realize was I spent a lifetime putting this weight on and no matter how much I wished or prayed it wasn't coming off over night. Yes we will have bumps (less than expected weight loss) and obsticals (a weight gain in a week or month) in our way, but if we stay the course the end result will be what we all are searching for, which is our own happiness. Ok I'm done I'm off the "soap box". I wish everyone a great day and I hope you all can stay positive.
