Anyone who knows me knows that I do not exercise. I have not ever exercised nor did I think I ever would exercise. That was BB, Before Bariatrics. There are many things that I have learned so far that have changed the way I think -- the need for exercise is but one of those.
For those who are unaware, I had bariatric surgery. While I am thrilled to note after five months I have lost about sixty-five pounds, it has been a journey that has held some unexpected results.
I had six months of preparation for the surgery. I thought that seemed unnecessary until I got nearer and nearer surgery. I realized then that it was something that amounted to a totally different life style. Those who seek bariatric surgery have several different reasons for seeking this kind of solution. In my case, I was experiencing difficulty in being as mobile as I wanted to be. I had lost significant amounts of weight two different times in my life. One time, the weight stayed off for about eighteen years then came back on quickly. The next time the weight came off relatively quickly, but did not stay off very long. I learned about myself and my relationship with food during both of these experiences.
