It's early days for me and my WLS journey. I hear people call it that, a "journey". I'm not sure if that's the right phrase for me but I'll use it for now. Anyway, as I said, it's early days for me. I have only admitted to myself a couple weeks ago that this is a real option for me. I had looked into it lightly a few years ago but I wasn't ready then. I began serious research a couple weeks ago and admitted to myself that I do qualify so it should be considered. I'm 52 years old and if I'm going to do it, there's really no time to waste.
Last week I attended a seminar at my local hospital and this week I spoke to my hubby about it. There seems to be a ton of emotions going through me right now about this. I've been reading a lot of other people's stories and I can see how much work I have to do. I hope I'm up to the challenge. Working to lose weight is easy compared to the emotional/mental work that I will need to do.
Next week I meet the surgeon and see what kind of a timeline I will have. Anxiety is my constant companion right now.
