I loved your letter. It was powerful and empowering at the same time. Thank you so much for sharing that and I hope you don't mind if I steal it for my own use. I think it would be a helpful reminder for when the times get rough and I start to wonder why in the world I'm doing this. I wish you well on your weight loss journey not just getting the weight off but keeping it off for good this time for the rest of your hopefully long wonderful life. Have a great day.

What a great letter to your stomach! I read it to mine also. Prayers are with you today, may you have a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing your progress. I am just behind you, I am on a 4 month Medical weigh loss for insurance approval. I am starting my month two, I haven't been doing great but acceptable. I am pledging to start exercise and no more cheating! take care :)

Thank you for writing such an eloquent letter to your stomach. I read it to my stomach in preparation for our weight loss journey. I am anticipating VSG in April. All the best to you for a safe and speedy recovery.

I'm 1 year post op and it's the best thing I have ever done! Good luck tomorrow. Something I have observed is that the most successful people I have seen have previously followed a diet plan and reached their goal. I believe you will do great. Love the letter and will be sharing it with others.

I love your article and letter. I wish I'd done that too when I had my WLS in 2001. Thank you for sharing it!
