Over the past few months I have started loving myself again. In the past, I have beat myself up for failing to meet my goals because it seemed like everytime I made a little headway, like lose a few pounds, something would happen and I'd have a setback. I'm no quitter so I'd just pick myself up, brush myself off and push through. My mantra: "This too shall pass. It's only temporary". But deep inside, this little voice kept asking me. "Why bother? Why do you keep pushing yourself only to end up a failure everytime? Why don't you just give up?" Because I have attempted and failed so many times in my weight-loss journey, I started feeling worthless, useless and a waste of space. And I started believing that little voice was right. Why bother. Well, because I matter! That's why! I am bound and determined to succeed. I want a chance to live a happy, healthy life without thinking about my weight everyday of my life.
I feel like this surgery will give me a fighting chance.
