Day 44 post op

At my parent's house so I have no weight today.

This cartoon has nothig to do with today in general, but more so my entire freaking life!!

I went to the church I grew up in for the first time in a very long time for Easter service with my family. For quite some time I've avoided going to places because I was SO tired of people commenting on my weight. I know I'm fat, I don't need you or anyone else to tell me!!! It's like once I gained weight, nobody ever commented on my hair, earrings, clothing, make up-nothing. Everything else faded under the looming shadow of my excess weight. If you know someone who has gained a few lbs or a lot more than a few, take a cue from something that we all learned in kindergarten.If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. I can now step down from my soapbox.

I love my mom and dad, but coming to their house is hell on my way of eating. Before surgery, that usually meant snacking on whatever junk food was in the cabinets. Since the surgery, however, I've not been tempted by any of the carby goodness lurking in their cabinets. One tiny square of a Hersheys bar is all of the Easter candy that I had today and I am satisifed. I never really thought that this would happen and on some crazy days I still think that it won't work for me. I still cannot get my head around all of the changes that the VSG has brought into my life. I don't know, I'm having a really hard time trying to find the words, but I am really grateful that I was able to have the surgery. Well, I've gone on long enough and I need to save some of this longwindedness for tomorrow.
