Today marks my third anniversary of my gastric sleeve surgery. I am still over a hundred (100!) pounds gone, but have regain. The picture above is my heaviest – 315 or 316…the right – with my regain a coupe of weeks ago—a very windy, wedding celebration.
Some pictures of before the regain…
The picture below came in a card from the Surgery Center. The picture on the left was the Friday before surgery (after losing 20 pounds), and the right is at 183- my lowest weight. I know I need to get a handle on my regain, and yes, I am very aware of the issues that are around the corner if I don’t contain it.
But…I come back to —I am not 316 pounds. I am able to walk – anywhere – and even participate in 5k’s. I might not be very fast, but I am out there. I am proud of where I am.
I am enough. I am able to so much these days…and nothing has to do with my size or weight.
I am enough. Happy Surgery Day to me.
