WLS: Not the Easy Way Out

Ok, I need to address something.  Some people think weight loss surgery is the “easy” way out.  I know in my case, it was the ONLY way out of immobility.  I am now down to 478…thats only like 21lbs gone since Jan, and thats ok with me.  It’s going slower because I can eat more now an am struggling a bit with my eating disorder.  I am reading a really good book though that is straightening out my mind.  “The Life You Want” by Bob Greene (yes, Oprahs trainer!)  It’s a fab book and talks A LOT about not feeling shame or worthlessness.  It’s fantastic and I cannot recommend it enough.

i have serious head issues when it comes to food.  It started really young and they are deeply ingrained in my psyche.  I will beat this, but it’s going to be long, hard and slow going. I’m ok with that.  I need to focus less on the control side of things and more into the why’s of it all.   By reading this book, I have found out a lot about myself and how I think and feel.  i have a lot of negative self talk going on…and Im learning (slowly) to over write it. But it is definitely NOT easy.  I wouldn’t change it for the world though. My life is so much better because of WLS.
