It’s been a while since I have ended things with Mr. Cheater. I still think of him often but it’s not upsetting to me anymore. I can only hope that he will discontinue his ways although I would bet money that he will not.
I am preparing myself for a gastric sleeve. I am a little over 100 lbs over my ideal weight. I just want to get back under 200 and I will be happy. I’m not really nervous, either. I’ve been reading about it and saving recipes on Pinterest for after the surgery. I’ve only known two people who have gotten the surgery and one has gained about half of the weight back over many years and the other one no longer works with me so I have no idea how well she is doing. She’s the one that referred me to Weight Loss Institute of Arizona.
Is it bad that I can’t wait to be at a healthier weight so that maybe the perfect man will enter my life? Of course I want to be healthier for myself and my kids. I honestly feel like more people would notice me if I was 100lbs less than what I am now. Yeah, that’s a lot. Life happened and I gained weight. I am an emotional eater, I always have been. I feel that I have grown enough and learned enough that I can make it through this surgery and not gain the weight after losing it. I have become so strong in the last two years that I really am proud of who I am. Now I want to focus on my health and my happiness about myself so I can truly shine.
Have any of you experienced weight loss surgery? I would love to know your thoughts, good or bad. Maybe you have a favorite recipe to share? I’m all ears!
