In the Weightloss Surgery (WLS) Community, we celebrate our successes in our WLS journey with Face to Face Friday.
I had a revision to my skin removal surgery this week. My surgeon didn’t like how it was healing. I had time on my hands while I was recuperating. I found the picture from before my bypass and one of the more recent pictures.
When the surgeon discussed the revision with me, he asked what my expectations were. I told him I didn’t know what to expect, he thought that meant I had low expectations.
My surgeon didn’t know the girl on the left. I’m getting to know the one on the right. It took me a while to realize that it wasn’t low expectations…it was identifying that as my body. The reflection in the mirror and the pictures aren’t like anything I’ve seen of me.
It’s been a journey! And it’s not over…this is a forever journey. It’s all lined up the way it was supposed to and needed to along the way. I’m so thankful for everyone who was in their right places for it all to work out.
Thank you for joining me on this journey.
