I posted a link to the Band Superstars website on my Facebook and said that they were success stories of women who had lost 100 pounds or more. I had a friend take issue with the fact that I implied that success only comes from those who had lost that much weight. It got me thinking about what I really consider success to be with the Lap-Band. Of course my goal is to lose over 100 pounds and I hope to someday be on that list, but I also know that success can be defined in so many other ways.
What do you consider "success"? Do you celebrate the smaller successes along the way or only look to the ultimate goal?
I have to admit that I am usually just focused on getting to my goal weight. Of course I celebrate every success along the way and love sharing NSVs. Sometimes I feel that I don't want to let myself think that anything other than getting to my goal weight is a success because I don't want to give myself the choice of not getting there. I guess that can be good or bad.
What do you think?
