3 Years

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.

Blessings.
