I knew that I was a big girl and needed to lose some weight, but it never really hit me until I saw these photos of myself from my first ever swim meet. I am at my highest weight ever. I weighed less at 9 months pregnant than I do today.
What is so shocking is how your own brain can play tricks on you. When I look at myself, I don’t see that I am this big.
This has been an ongoing issue for me my whole life. I have been to therapy so many times I don’t have enough fingers or toes to count that high. Growing up I was the token fat girl in class that would get laughed at and teased. Kids in grade school can be very mean and when you don’t have the coping skills at a young age it never leaves you.
I am on my final steps in getting approved for weight loss surgery. I just found out that the office just got the last piece of paperwork that is needed. I go on Tuesday, May 5th for my last class and then see the surgeon on June 1st, with possible approval 2 weeks after. The it will be the waiting game for a surgery date as he is about 4 to 6 weeks out after you get approved.
Keep your fingers crossed!!
