On this journey again
Wednesday, August 07, 2019
I am a 48 year old wife and mother....I am so sick of feeling embarassed to go out in public for fear I'll run into someone i know. When i first met my husband i weighed 120 lbs, now i have gone from 315 to 297. I have tried every diet under the sun, i would lose a little bit and then gain it all back plus some. My daughter had bariatric gastric sleeve surgery and her results have been so good it made me want to try it. So far she's lost close to 85 lbs in under 6 months.
I have only told a select few because most people who hear of it say you are taking the easy way out, believe me there is nothing EASY about this process, it is a complete change of life but one i feel is my last and maybe only way of taking the weight off. I truly believe this is my last ditch effort at becoming normal again, I have been a hermit for so many years being able to go out in public without worry, anxiety or fear will be a dream.
I am excited yet a little scared, today i finally got my surgery date. The first day of the rest of my life will be Sept 9th!
