Surgery does a pretty good job with the physical part of obesity. The mental stuff is much harder. Surgery cannot make us make good food choices or force us to exercise or slap the third cookie out of our hand. In all the years that I struggled with food, I wanted to be thin, but I didn't want to give up binging and overeating. I wanted my cake and to eat it too. Literally.
I have learned so much in the last two years and you guys have been a huge part of my success. You've given me a sounding board. You've listened and supported and encouraged. I know I wouldn't have been so successful without you and I am eternally grateful!
