Why am I blogging about WLS?

Why am I writing these blogs about weight loss surgery?
* I am not trying to convince anyone to have it done. *
WLS is not a good choice for everyone!
I just want to share information. Some people have asked me casually about it, and it's hard to give a simple explanation. What do I say? I failed at decades of diets, so I have my stomach made smaller to force me to diet?
For people who want to know more, I want to share information.
I also want to document my own journey. I'm a blogger and scrapbooker. I enjoy doing it.
And again, I feel strangely defensive about my choice.
In my small circle of friends, family, coworkers and other acquaintances, it seems that people hold strong opinions about WLS. And it also seems that the people who know less about it are the most vocal against it.
Personally speaking, I did it, it was a good choice for me, and I feel good about it. I'm tired of the snide comments I get, and I feel bad for others who are being told they are taking the easy way out, or worse.
I'd love for my friends here to continue reading about my journey with WLS, and I welcome comments and questions!
