I want to be very honest about my journey thus far.... as im talking to other flight attendants about their weight struggles and journeys, sharing my experience and answering questions regarding my procedure, I’m realizing a lot of things.
I haven’t really had the time to be grateful for the ease of my weight loss because I had to take on my dads emergency, my huge life transition, and continuously battle relationship issues that consumed me for the last couple of years. But as I listen to people talk about all the different diets and methods they are trying to do to lose weight I feel SO GRATEFUL. My heart has probably been broken for at least 5 years but one thing I don’t tackle daily anymore or think about is what I will eat to lose weight, what diet im going on next, or how im going to reach down and tie my shoes. Having the courage to take the big leap and get this major surgery removed the obsession and consumption of dieting and eating from my life. I haven’t really thought about it much so it’s been hard for me to remain grateful Bc now I’ve just been focused on my internal work and mending my heart. The truth is, gastric sleeve released me from thinking about dieting and weight loss. It’s not even on my radar. Most days im just trying to stabilize my mental space and feel okay despite the “turbulence” in my life. As I hear people talk about their weight struggles and even their alcohol and smoking cigarettes struggles, I realize that so much of my life was consumed with being someone who binged on everything I consumed and this surgery literally CHANGED MY LIFE. Yes I still struggle with depression, heartache, and loneliness, and also what im going to eat, but I no longer put emphasis on weight loss or food or worrying about holiday season or anything so for that im GRATEFUL. And NO I DONT HAVE ANY LOOSE SKIN Bc I was only my high weight for a short period of my life. #transformationtuesday #wlscommunity #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevecommunity #wlssurgery #gratitude #transformation #vsglife #vsgcommunity #vsgjourney #gastricsleevecrew #verticalgastricsleeve #bariatricbabes #vsgfamily
