Day 59 post....The VSG can make you a better version of you

??6.6, -1.0 from yesterday, 56.8 to date

Losing weight has been incredible. Periodic Table said to me yesterday," Baby, this has been the best money we ever spent." I couldn't agree with him more.

With each pound I lose, I'm finding myself more and more. The excess weight was keeping from being the person that I wanted to be, but I just didn't realize just how much it was suffocating the life in me. It's just now that I am peeling off and discarding these layers that I can actually see how it affected me. Just yesterday, The Kid was under the table at a restaurant, and without thinking about it or skipping a beat, I jumped out of the booth, quickly squatted down, and promptly put his little behind back in his seat. It was only when I had been comfortably back in my own seat for a minute that I said to Headlights, " Damn, I wouldn't, couldn't have done that before I started losing weight, friend." I just hit me.

I spent so much energy bearing the physical and emotional tonnage of corpulence, that I was depleted when it came time to put the energy into my family or even myself. My nails, while chipped and in desperate need of a do-over, are polished for the first time in years. Jewelry that was once collecting dust now adorns my ears, arms, and neck again. Little stuff that I never thought about NOT doing, I find myself effortlessly doing. This VSG and the changes that it's brought into my life so far are unbelievable.


  1. Very cool post. Love to hear about all of the great changes that happen when people find themselves again. I wish you many many more "finding you" moments :)
