Are YouLiving After WLS?
Last week Kim Stover, my gorgeous friend and our frequent contributor here at LivingAfterWLS, wrote about how she notices her new energy when it is time to decorate for the holidays. In her article Kim spoke of her first holiday decorating after weight loss, ”I had more energy and was more able bodied to do the decorating. Since this was a once a year event, it was very obvious to me how my weight loss was now affecting my life. Yeah for me!”
I, too, enjoy a great sense of energy this time of year and it is noticeable when I reflect on the many years of morbid obesity and the exhaustion that comes with a unhealthy overweight body. Last weekend we made our annual trek to the high Rocky Mountains to cut our Christmas tree. The snow was – literally – thigh deep and I laughed my way through it enjoying the energy and spirit of the moment! What a great day to celebrate and rejoice at having a normal healthy powerful body!
You know, before surgery many of us make “to do” lists for our lives post surgery and post weight loss. Since having surgery are you accomplishing what’s on your list? Are you enjoying your new normal healthy powerful body? Are you Living After WLS? Post your story here – I know I love to be inspired by each of you and so do the members of the LivingAfterWLS community!
