First off, congrats on being a step closer to your first goal, Kathy.
Second, as I read your post I realized I never really considered what I would do once the weight is gone. Then, it occured to me that after so many years of failing at weight loss, I don't truly believe the weight is going anywhere, even with the sleeve.
It makes me wonder, if I make it through approval, if i get this procedure done, when will it dawn on me that I can start considering the answer to 'what will you do without the weight?'
I have been this way for 25 years. I have no idea what I even look like under all of this. It's exciting to think about in the most unusual way. Will i recognize the person in the mirror as myself anymore? Guess it's a good thing I'm already lining up a good counselor for all of this huh?
