    Girl, you had BETTER be bragging! You have every right to! Weight loss surgery is not some magical "fix it all", you still have to work HARD to get that weight off and keep it off! I don't think there is any shame whatsoever in opting for surgery, it's a very brave move, and you should be applauded for your decision and your ability to get your weight down and keep it down!

    I agree, and I hope my comment didn't come off as being negative! I have a friend who has lost close to 100lbs with WLS and she does work very hard, and sometimes still gets her butt kicked in weight loss challenges that run on another forum by people who haven't had it. Definitely still requires work and determination!

    You are living proof of what I have been saying for a long time. The excess weight makes a huge difference in how you ride, and how much you enjoy it, (not to mention the horse) and how much easier it is when your weight is under control.

    Even sitting still in the saddle is more enjoyable, not to mention being able to bend over to adjust something, or mount without having to use a crane to get up there.

    But glad to hear you are doing so well.
