Writing this may actually be really hard!
I have wanted to put this on here for so long, as I feel like having it out there, will give me some accountability. Mostly as if you guys all know I’m doing this and see my talk about junk food, or falling off the wagon, then someone can link me back to this.
I’m writing this, the same day I’ve been denied a surgery to remove my Gallstones and Gallbladder. Why was this denied? I’m classed as too high risk due to my weight and BMI.
Now for any person, this would be a horrible blow. It may even make them feel low for the rest of the day. For me, I went in waiting for him to bring up my weight. Waiting for the obvious, “Have you tried removing fat from your diet?” “Have you tried exercising?” “Do you really feel this is the right next step?”.
The day before, I’d been to a dentist, to get a wisdom tooth out. It didn’t go forward due to my crappy veins (but that’s a story for another day!), but before leaving, she did mention that it would be difficult to find any other oral surgeon to preform the procedure, due to my weight. This is something I truly didn’t see coming.
This may not seem like a lot to make me want to restart my weight-loss journey, but if any of you has or have gallstones, I do believe you’ll know why I need this surgery to go ahead!
So now it’s time for me to make a complete restart on my weight loss journey. I’m not 100% sure how I’ll be going about it though. I’m considering going back to Slimming World, but with my insane work schedule, I’d have to do it online!
I know a few of you lovelies who read my posts are on your own journeys, so I would be extremely grateful of any advice any of you may have!
I’ll be doing a weekly update, and a monthly weigh-in post. For personal reasons I won’t share the number on the scale, but I am aiming for a BMI between 30-35 as this is what I need for surgery. I’m currently just below 50, so it will be a slow and steady journey!
If anyone has any advice what-so-ever please leave it in the comments! Any advice is greatly appreciated!
