They Don't Get It, But That Is Okay

Jun 14, 2009

 I saw yet another person make a judgement about gastric bypass who doesn't understand it.  My first reaction was to throw my hands up in the air and shout all the reasons why they should understand this isn't the 'easy' way to lose weight.  However, the more I mulled it over the more I realized it didn't really matter if they got it.  I get it.  The people here get it.  I have reaped the benefits of it and that is all that really matters.  I have kept 120 pounds of weight off my body for two years.  I have re-learned how to eat and exercise.  I no longer take any prescription medication related to my obesity.  And most importantly, more likely than not, I will live to see my children's children and THAT is what matters to me.
