Four years ago today,
I was heading to the hospital for my weight loss surgery. I was 21, a senior in
college, and taking half a semester off to, hopefully, change my life.
Now, I know that some people might thing: Eeek! 21 is really young to have such
major surgery. But make no mistake about it - I was FAT......and not like
"Oh, I'm the chubby friend" fat; I was the “I'm not even 5'3" and I
weigh over 340 lbs.” fat.
Between doula work and nursing clinicals, my body ached and I had had enough.
