Support Wednesday: One Step

I did not make my support group tonight because I did not get out of my first appointment with a psychologist for weight loss surgery until it was too late. I was a little worried about the whole psychologist appointment because I always think I am a bit messed up.

I was supposed to meet with one doctor but met with another today and that was fine. I settled right in and answered all the questions truthfully. I may have spooked him a bit when I told him I did not want to see the number on the scale but I saw it anyway. *SIGH*

He asked why I was overweight, how, when, where of my being overweight. I went on about how I was harassed, Mom was not doing well, and well, food was there and even though I have been up and down and up and down like a roller coaster, I am ready. I want to be healthy. I do not want to be in Dad’s shoes at 62 and I am heading there.

I did a lot of talking. Once you get me started on a subject I care about, watch out. Supposedly everything I said about being invisible is common but he said I am going have to work on the attention thing. I am. I am working on it. That was a huge part of my failure in my previous attempts. It is kind of upside that I would be considered invisible at my weight now that I think about it, right?

He listened and asked questions. He explained the options and as of now, I am looking at either the sleeve or the bypass surgery.

I am totally ready. It is a tool like a ladder but you still have to climb up.

I am thinking about adding a guest post or two now and then to spice things up. Would you be interested in guest posting? If so, let me know!


  1. Lots of appointments can be exhausting. Especially mentally.
    I've never experienced the invisible feeling you mention. Who do you want to be visible to that you are now? I hope you don't mind me asking:)

  2. Good for you! Im glad you are ready!

    I'd guest post, but I dont know what I would write...
