I'm feeling pretty good right now.
I told my mom that I was considering weigh loss surgery.
To say that my mother and I have a difficult relationship is an understatement.
My mother's response to me telling her that I was getting allergies shots was to inform me that it's because of where I live and I need to move. (I have no clue where she thinks I should move, but I certainly wouldn't move closer.)
So I really had no idea what to expect from telling her about the weight loss surgery. Part of me was that I didn't want to tell her.
And she did alright. She actually said that she didn't want to influence me one way or the other so she didn't want to say much. She said that she knew losing weight would be healthier for me, but surgery had risks. And that was it. We then talked about our struggles with weight and had a pretty good conversation about it. She was amazingly non judgmental.
I'll admit, I find weight issues to be a particularly sensitive topic, and my mom has an uncanny way of pushing my buttons. But not today.
