"Coming Out" online

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!

Great read Sarah.........

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......

"The black mark on your boat is below the water line.” 

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