What a NSV!

Today, I was chatting with someone I met several years after my gastric bypass.  I don’t bring up my surgery in regular conversation, because honestly, I don’t like to bring it up unless need be.  Somehow or other, it got brought up, and I mentioned “after my gastric bypass”.  She looked at me blankly and asked what I meant.  I said I had had gastric bypass almost seven years ago.  The shocked look on her face made my day! 

“Why?” she asked.  I explained I was (obviously) very heavy and had some health problems.  She said “I never, ever would’ve guessed.  I figured you were always tiny Kate”.  Me?!  Tiny?!  Wow!!!  Thanks!!!  Now that, friends, is what makes this surgery so worth it.  When seven years down the road, it’s a shock that you haven’t always been the way people see you today.  That you’ve come so far, your heavier self is not even a memory for many in your life!

Hello, I'm Kate, and I'm a 10 year gastric bypass post-op. I started this blog, as well as my nutritional website betterbariatric.net, to help other bariatric surgery post-op's on their journey as well as pre-op's with their decision if bariatric surgery is right for them or not.
