"Good is the enemy of great."
(This is the quote that the book opens up with.)
I think this quote applies to my journey with WLS as well. Will I be happy and satisfied with "good" or will I continue to push to the next level, "GREAT"? I am going to really ponder this over the next few days. What makes me a good WLS patient? What makes me an excellent WLS patient? What steps do I need to take to get to the "great" category? When I think of good, especially as I am reading this book, I am starting to pair it with the word "mediocre."
My weight has always been the one area of my life I could not excel at. I have done excellent at civic commitments, job obligations, college, etc. (No, I'm not perfect, but I hope you get the point!) Now that I have been given this second chance with WLS, what will I do with it?
