Sometimes I really do struggle emotionally with my feelings after having had weight loss surgery. Difficult emotions rise up and you're forced to deal with them otherwise you return to old patterns. I didn't sacrifice everything I did to have this life-altering surgery just to throw it down the drain. So I have to walk through tough feelings, like not being able to eat most meat without wanting to throw up, some hair loss (although not nearly as bad as others) or the excess skin that is here with all of the weight loss. However, I have an amazing support system in my life that lets me know I'm not alone and that I'm very much loved. That means so much to me. I'm continuing to do good things for myself, like having great workouts at the gym. The surgery was a tool but I still have work to do. I wish I could explain that in a way people can truly understand. It's not the easy way out. Honestly, it's much more difficult. My anatomy is different now and it always will be. I'm not complaining, just expressing this wasn't an easy decision but one that has literally saved my life. I'm really grateful.
