Two years ago today, I had bariatric surgery. I had a lap-band placed, and I think it's one of the best, if not THE best, things I've ever done for myself.
I went from here:
and in the process regained my health and my zest for life.
I don't deny myself any food that I really want, but I do eat far more mindfully now, and often enough just asking myself, "Is it really worth it?" suffices to stop me from eating something I really shouldn't.
That's one big milestone. Another one that I completely spaced is my four-year blogiversary, which passed unnoticed a few weeks ago. Go, me!
Both things, weight-loss surgery and blogging, have transformed my life immeasurably. I've made the best friends I've ever had through blogging, and I can't picture how dull and dreary my life would be without you all. So thank you for being my friends, all you bloggy people out there! Whether you lurk without commenting, read and comment, or blog yourselves, you are ALL appreciated.
There's a kiss for each and every one of you!
I have been COMMANDED, by a certain lovably bossy someone who shall remain nameless, to add the following photo to this blogpost.
