A few years ago if you told me all of my answers were within my body, I would have ended the conversation right then.
I chose to have lap band surgery. I decided to gain weight so I could raise my BMI high enough for insurance to cover it. I was so disconnected from my body and my Self because that was all I had practiced for so long.
And when the weight came back I was numb to the deep disappointment I felt. I had anticipated the weight coming back in one way or another. And then when it did, I was full of shame and embarrassment.
The first step I took was the hardest. It was to go back to Weight Watchers for the dozen time. To let Mike pick up Michael from daycare. And go to a meeting near my work on Wednesday nights. I had not lost weight with them before but I was so desperate to find the path that would work for me and I knew someone who did really well with it.
That was the first bravest step I took. I am so grateful to that version of me because The Universe kept showing up as long as I did, too. And all of those steps led me here.
I never gave up and I change my entire life. I was taught new concepts and went within before I knew that was what I was doing. It was the only way that would have opened me to up to my current reality.
The life I live today was the faintest, smallest, most impossible truth I wanted so badly. I am equipped with more knowledge and deep understanding to help anyone see the light.
You are in darkness. You cannot see anything. Let me be the crack of light in the doorway. Know that there is a way out. Pick yourself up. And gather your things. Because you can choose different for yourself.
But you first have to recognize you’re in the dark.
You are a not a lost cause.
You are not hopeless.
You are not unworthy.
Trust that the deepest truth is that this was always meant to be this way. Because your greatest teacher is the most uncommon part of your being. I will show you how and teach you to connect with yourself and your body. And this journey will have been the greatest love story ever told.
Your body is waiting for you to acknowledge it. Your body wants you to see the light. You can do this. I will hold your hand and together we’ll rise.
This is Life After Lap Band.
