Re: dealing with negativity
Hi Mimi & welcome! You shouldn't have to defend yourself---this is your decision and I'm sure you've not made it lightly. This is what you feel is best for your life. Remember that. Don't worry about what others may say, just keep your mind on your goal of a new life. And don't ever let anyone make you feel that you're taking the "easy way out" by having surgery. It's by no means, easy! It's still hard work, but this band is a tool to help you stay in control and to learn new habits. That's the way it's been for me at least. Surround yourself with people who support you, and ignore the others. And this is a great place for support!
Soooo....when is your surgery?? Keep us updated!
A dream you don't fight for can haunt you for the rest of your life.
