I had noticed a classmate of mine was losing a ton of weight and looked absolutely stunning. So yes I asked what she did and of course it was the gastric sleeve surgery. I was so excited for her and excited it was something I could do. I had struggled for years with my weight and was actively trying to shed the pounds. My personal trainer said that my body was crazy because I would plateau for months on the same five pounds. I would work out 2 hours a day...once at 5 am and again at 5pm. It was grueling but I wanted to make a difference in me. So now I had this amazing surgery I could do and finally be in shape like I wanted to be. It would take me some time to actually have the surgery. I struggled with doing something to my body that would take away something God created. I struggled more when a close friend of mine passed away due to complications of a gastric bypass surgery that was done here at home. But still I knew I had to have the surgery to make a difference in my life. I didn't go in with goals to lose a ton of weight. I just wanted to feel better. I wasn't huge, just big. I am 9 months out of the surgery and down 75 lbs and I feel great. A month after my surgery, the kids and I were playing hide go seek outside in the dark. My 10 year old daughter said I'm glad you got the surgery so you could run and play with us. That day I knew what I had done was right. And as time went by I could see the difference in my appearance and with that came confidence inside of me. IF I had to do it all over again, I would do it! I wish I would have overcome my fears sooner and did it sooner.
