Back on track!

I sooo owe you a couple of entries! It's been a little crazy here.

DH joined Weight Watchers and I have to say...I'm glad he did. Watching him learn the program has really made me step back and re learn a few things myself. So that has been really good.

My friend had her surgery and is doing really well. It makes me sooo jealous. So I mentioned to DH that she lost 8 lbs. this week and he asked me if I still wished that it was me. I asked him if he wanted the truth and I told him that I did still want the surgery. So he said that I should have it if it is what I want.

And I do......so I am working hard to get that last 15 lbs. off so I can have the surgery. I am hoping to do it in December but we will see how it goes.

I'll tell you more tomorrow but I wanted to get this out there.

Love to all....

    Sounds like you are doing well on being healthier. I am tentatively scheduled for surgery December 2; was originally scheduled the beginning of August but my husband was diagnosed with cancer and died the last week of July.

    emoticon That's great news that your DH is making progress with WW!

    Have you been fully counseled about bariatric surgery? The medical consequences are serious. It's like an organ transplant; you are swapping one set of problems for another. I interned at a hospital that does a large amount of bariatric surgeries. The suffering involved is not insignificant and many of the patients regain weight. I have an obese nurse friend who had the surgery years ago; somehow he managed to regain most of what he lost. He went through all that pain and has the chronic effects only to return to where he was. I worry that is a possibility for us if we change our bodies without changing our minds.

    Especially now that your DH is on board with you, you may be able to make the behavioral changes that would make surgical changes unnecessary.

    Forgive me for chiming in. I hope you feel the care and concern that motivates my comment. Of course I support your freedom to choose surgery for yourself and I wish you the very best in whatever you chose to do.
