So I read a facebook post today from a few girls I follow blogs on. I will say it made me really sad. The girl was actually quite mad that her friend was getting WLS when clearly all she was doing was eating garbage and not moving enough. This is the exact type of attitude from someone who does not know what they are talking about. Yes I did get that large from not eating right and not exercising enough but it wasn't for lack of trying for about 30 years....I could drop 100lbs but I could not maintain that loss. Losing the weight was not the problem..sustaining the loss was the problem. I was a yo-yo dieter and that is not healthy. I truly believe that this is not an issue for some as it is others. I also believe when you have been overweight your whole life it is hard to keep that weight off. I guess I don't think of WLS as the easy way...and I don't think anyone who has had it..think that. In fact I don't know a single WLS person who believes it was easy. The only people who think its easy are those people who don't know much about it. Yes, there are those that gain weight back after WLS...thats because it is a tool...its not easy and requires lots of work on your part. I spent a lot of time making the decision I did to have WLS and it hurts me when someone can be so flippant about someone elses decision....fine if you don't want to do it don't, but don't SHIT on someone elses day forcing your beliefs on them!
I am not sure why she really felt the need to rant on FB about something she really doesn't understand..it hurt my feelings. Mainly because I LOVE her blog, she is hilarious and funny and I followed her religously...I don't think I can do that anymore.
On a side note, I am giving my buddy Elizabeth from InsidevsOutside a shout out...she is still recuperating from her surgery(got her port replaced) and the poor girl can't take pain meds..only tylenol...I heart you girl and hope you feel better soon!!!!
