So I had my surgery on February 14th. It was a romantic date with the surgeon. It was a tough few days, mostly because I was away from my kids and husband and I missed them all terribly. That being said, I am so glad that I made the decision to get the surgery.
I am under 300 pounds for the first time in almost 5 years. I have struggled for so long with my weight and it is so nice to not be struggling. Sure there has been a lot of adjustment, I am still trying to figure out what to do with myself when I am in that situation of wanting to eat my feelings, but even when I give in, there is only so much damage that I can do.
The increase in energy that I have is pretty crazy! I bought myself a new bike, actually, the whole family got new bikes. Going for a bike ride is wonderful. I love to be taking part in my life instead of watching it from the sidelines.
I just have to say, if you are on the fence, if you are really considering taking this step, do it. You won't regret it.
