My hair was being frizzy that day and I can remember snapping a pic and thinking later “holy shit, Could I be any uglier if I tried” after that photo it was nearly a year before I would take a picture of myself again and I refused to have my picture taken. My heart breaks for that brave, amazing woman. She went for 90 job interviews over a 2 year period and had no success but first 2 interviews I went for after my WLS I was offered both jobs. She felt that she deserved to be overlooked for things because “hey, I’m fat and I hate me so why would anyone else want me around” she was frustrated by her life and so sad on a daily basis BUT SHE REFUSED TO GIVE UP!!! I was terrified after failed lap band, to have surgery again, it took me 10 years to get my courage up but it was worth it. I haven’t had an easy time of things but I would do it again, and again and again to have the life that I have now. If you are in your deciding phase about making a life change, I promise it’s worth it!! If you have to wait until this pandemic passes I’m so sorry for the wait but thankfully you are smart and won’t waste a decade of your life like I did! Thank you Friends and family for all of your love and inspiration.
