I received this card in the mail on Saturday from my surgeon’s office, Baptist Bariatric Center of Excellence.
I had just been questioning my weight loss. It is difficult not to see how far I have come, but how much farther I need to go. Always what else I need to do, not how much I have done. Do you do this? It doesn’t always have to do with weight loss. Oh the tricks that the mind plays.
This simple action, a card with my results in a picture, hit me hard. My arms are by my side, not hanging out. I have an actual neck. I can shop in a normal clothing store. I have lost weight. I am not huge anymore.
It is difficult not to see the fat me, but this helps.
