What will life be life be like after the surgery?
I can't say for certain, but I have a pretty good idea.
I will never be able to chug a glass of water or any other liquid.
I will have to sip for the rest of my life.
Never again will I be able to take a bite of any food and chew three times and swallow.
Never again will I be able to eat rich fatty food without paying a huge price.
Never again will I be able to eat anything sweet without paying a huge price.
I will have to chew every bite until it is the consistency of applesauce.
Does this seem like a big price to pay? Yes. What is the advantage to doing this. For me, this is the tool that I have not had before. No longer will I have to gain and lose the same 70 lbs. I am confident that the sacrifices listed above outweigh the distress of yo yo dieting.
