Making the decision to be healthier
Saturday, May 25, 2013
The last few year I have not been logging on to the web site or doing the things I know I need to do to loose the weight. I have gained back all the weight I loss when I was on here before & more.
I had a doctor's appointment earlier in the year & she informed me at that time that I have diabetes. Diabetes run in my family & I had low blood sugar as a child. I have always been told it is not a matter if I get diabetes but when.
My doctor has recommended that I have weight loss surgery. I know 4 people that have been through the weight loss surgery. But that doesn't make things easier right now.
I have been doing a lot of studying looking for answers on some of the questions I have. I have read a lot of blogs & post from the weight loss surgery team. Some of the questions have been answered but this has only made me think of more. I have ordered the book "Weight loss surgery for dummies" I was surprised I had to order it & it would not just be on the shelf. On the 29 I will have my first clinic appointment & information session.
Many people who discuss weight loss surgery seem to think it is an easy way out. There is often such a huge negative reaction from people when it is discussed. I haven't told many people about my decision.
Even posting something on here I was afraid of the reactions I might get. Reading the posts from others has help with this fear but I know not everyone is struggling with weight loss and do not understand my decision so I have decide not to tell everyone about my decision yet.
