i'm pretty open about the whole thing. after all, it's kind of hard to miss!! but after ALL THIS WEIGHT i'm starting to be reluctant to give people exact numbers. some of them just add up the number of people i've lost and it just makes me uncomfortable.
but most people are very supportive, even those who are 'against' it. after they hear me, they realize that this can be lifesaving, and not just life-threatening.
but interesting thing happened yesterday... i was at a step niece's baby shower with some folks i know only very very very slightly, and they knew about my surgery. i didn't bring it up.they mentioned it towards the end of the afternoon. and they were curious but plainly reluctant to ask me, so i told them anyway, and then they told me all about their WW points for the day.
i couldn't wait to get out of there!
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
