I contribute to the blog Moms Who Need Wine. This is my post for the month, if anyone is interested. :)
It's not exactly "coming out" since anyone who knows me in real life or on Facebook would have to live under a rock not to know I'd had VSG, but this is the first time I just put it out there for total strangers.
Beautifully said! I love the part about letting go of emotional pain along with the weight. I am finally starting to do the same thing. Congrats to you!
Thank you for letting me know you on a deeper, more vulnerable level. Your courage humbles me.

It was very motivating to see your WL progress and I too share your sentiment about getting your life back.......
But this was my favorite line in your story......

May our black mark never ever go below the waterline again !!!!!!
