- So far, I've lost 27 pounds under the medically supervised weight loss! (Yay me!)
- I still have to lose 9 more pounds to meet the qualifications for the surgery.
- However, my paperwork has been submitted to the surgeon with the understanding that I will be losing those 9 pounds and possibly more.
I've also found that once I made the decision to tell others I was preparing for the surgery, I found so many supportive folks in the strangest of places. Of course, there are the "whys?" but ultimately, I make sure that everyone understands this decisions does not come from a place of vanity but it is a choice to live my life the way I want to live it.
I promise to do better here. To be honest, I missed this and I really forgot how cathartic it could be. More later
