It has been just over a year since I walked into your office for my consultation and I vividly remember how traumatic it was to have to admit that this weight thing had gone too far and I that I couldn’t do it on my own, consequently uncontrollably crying as I walked out and then all the way home. I knew this decision would be life changing from a health perspective but never in a million years could have imagined the changes that have happened inside. In just six months since surgery, the feeling of moving around in the world as a “regular” person gives me immeasurable comfort, confidence and contentment. I have heard people say “If only I had done it earlier”. I don’t feel this way. It feels to me that I wouldn’t have been ready before now and everything has happened exactly when and how it was supposed to happen and I couldn’t be happier. Some days it is painful to look back at the “before” and the now visible “sadness” that resides in my eyes that I thought I hid so well. It is also sometimes difficult to accept that people are treating me differently because of the way I look but I realise now that it was probably the giant repellent force field that I had constructed around myself – who knows? I do know I wouldn’t trade a second of the pain, the challenges, the loose skin, the “bingo wings” or the hair loss for the life I have now (which includes a little romance for the first time in my life!). Today I make plans and not excuses and it’s exciting. Being able to make them in a pair of size 12 jeans is just a delightful and unbelievable bonus! *
