Successful WLS causes amnesia! June 2017

Jun 24, 2017


In a few months I will be 13 years out!  13 years I can hardly believe.  I am at a nice weight but I still come to OH and read and remember.

I come back to OH!  It is like an old friend.  I come to read my own story and blog.  This sight has help me keep weight off for all these years. I am happy but like most people my age I would like to lose a few pounds BUT I don't weigh 360 pounds anymore and when I read my story, I remember. 

I really think that is the "secret” of keeping the weight off is to remember. We all have such stories of how weight has affected our lives and then we have WLS and lose so much weight in a short period of time it is incredible. Then we get amnesia. We forget where we came from during this process.  We shun the support groups, the WLS doctor even friends who knew us when we were MO.  

This sight. This Blog. These people are my touchstone.  I don't post much but I do read and come visit my "friends" at OH who KNOW what I have gone though and what I struggle with daily.  

Yes, WLS and be success at it causes amnesia but OH is here to help you remember.... Thank you.

Much luv.
