Stretch marks & double chins

image

I had my last supervised weight loss appointment today. Exciting, right? I left feeling like I’ve accomplished so much. But in reality, it’s only been 3 months. I’ve struggled and soared. I can’t help but think about all of the people who have to do 6+ months of this.

I will say that I am super blessed to have such an amazing team right here in our town. I feel supported and ready to take on this giant life change. Not only by the medical team, but friends and family too.

A week from today, I’ll have my pre-op with my surgeon. Right after that is my final meeting with the nutritionist before the surgery. My surgery will be scheduled within 30 days of these appointments.

This road has taken me through ups and downs. Judgment and acceptance. Excited and scared. I can say that I’ve learned a lot about myself. I’ve learned to love every flaw on my body. The stretch marks on my belly caused by pregnancy. The home to my children. Where my body protected them and helped them grow. How could I hate those stretch marks? They’re a reminder of the beautiful things a woman’s body is capable of. My thighs that touch. My double chin. I know these are things I would rather be without, but to be perfectly honest, I’ve accepted that I may never lose these. And I’m okay with that.

My name is Jessica Wolfe. I am the wife of an incredible man and father. He and I have been together longer than we have been apart. We have two sons, one is 18 and a freshman at Indiana State University majoring in Music Education. Our 13 year old son is in the 7th grade and is being home schooled. My vertical sleeve gastrectomy surgery was on June 16, 2016. My total gastrectomy was March 3, 2017. I’ve recently found out I have a fairly large benign tumor in my brain. I also have something going on in my lower spine between my L5 and S1. It seems as though surgery is imminent. Through this blog, I share my life with you and am brutally honest with myself so that when I do look back, I can see what it was that made me make the decisions I did. I also welcome opinions and questions as it challenges my thoughts and helps me grow from where I am. If you want to check me out anywhere else, please do!
