I have one friend who had gastric bypass. She and her husband are now getting a divorce.
There are those that say that rate of divorce increases dramatically after WLS. I honestly think those relationships had many issues prior to the surgery. I cannot imagine not having my wife by my side through all of this. I want to look good for HER too.
This week has been a challenge. I have overeaten quite a bit. Each time I have something I go through this process that is kind of... saying goodbye. Breaking up with food is going to be tough. It is always there for me. A friend, comfort, a get away.
This surgery I am having is going to be a TOOL. A tool that I can't simply just use when I want. It is a forever change. FORRREEVVEERRR. It isn't a guarantee. It isn't going to be an easy fix.
Even with all that in mind- I am ready. READY!
I have my last nutritionist appointment on Wednesday. Hopefully then we go forward with submitting to insurance!
