Why I write about my health #NHBPM
I started this blog to keep track of how I was feeling about the whole process of WLS and to just wrap my brain around the whole idea of what I was doing and my reasons why. I also have some fabulous online friends who want to keep track of how I was doing and what was going on through this whole process.
To say this has be life altering would be a total understatement. Having the surgery and losing the weight has given me a new lease on life, literally. I never knew how much I hid myself away until I could no longer hide behind the fat. There are times when this is terrifying because as I shrink, I;m faced with new situations but at the same time, I'm growing into a better version of me.
I felt the need to share my story with everyone because I wanted them to understand this wasn't an easy decision and it is a life long commitment. Contrary to popular belief, WLS is not the "easy" way out. It's a lifestyle change that you can't walk away from. I will be altered FOREVER! Instead, I'm learning how to live with a new me and sharing that journey with the world and that, my dear readers, is why I write about my health!
