Have you ever closed your eyes and fantasized about the day you’d step on the scale and see a weight starting with the number one?
Then you, my friend, have had the same dream that many of us bariatric patients have had. The dream of the ever pursued ONEderland.
And I am here to tell you that it is real, and you CAN get there.
ONEderland Is A Monumental Milestone
In the bariatric community, reaching ONEderland is a rite of passage. It says to people, “Look at me! I’m out here doing this!” It symbolizes the entryway to your body’s healthy weight. Therefore, it is hugely celebrated. And it should be!
