anniversary · Bariatric Surgery - My Story · Uncategorized · WLS


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.

Happy Monday!
