4 Years

It's really hard to believe that I had the surgery
Four years ago tomorrow.
My weight has been pretty consistant.
In the 150s during stressful times.
In the 160s during normal times.
Never above 170.
I feel good about myself.
I lost the one who fell in love with me pre-surgery.
But I have found a new.
I have been raising a toddler
Who runs and jumps and is full of energy.
I can't imagine chasing her at 286.7.

Hi Carrie, I just wanted to let you know I recently found your blog and reading through it has really encouraged me to push forward with the surgery. Your success is such an inspiration and really gave me the information I needed to be comfortable and ready to do this. I am hoping to schedule my surgery within the month as I am already accepted and insurance cleared. I hope you have been doing great since you last updated and continue to write. Thank you for sharing your story.
Sincerely, Lu Lu

When you say you lost the one who fell in love with you pre surgery were you talking about Tammy or your former self?
