On Friday I told the first person (other than my family and healthcare professionals) that I was having Gastric Bypass surgery. After answering questions about the surgery and what it means, she was very excited for me given that she knows what it could mean for me. I've been somewhat embarassed by the surgery in that "I have to have surgery to lose weight", but it made me feel good to tell someone and to get the encouragement and support that she gave. Maybe I'll tell others ... who knows!
