When I had the gastric sleeve in October 2017, I wanted to lose weight but it wasn’t the numbers that mattered most to me. It was being healthy enough to have a baby that mattered. Then, just over a year ago, I found out I was pregnant. It was a reasonably healthy pregnancy aside from having no energy and needing to keep an eye on my blood pressure. Then my little miracle arrived five weeks early at the end of February.
Until the day I found out I was pregnant, my journey was about losing weight, getting healthy, and improving my relationship with food. Then my journey became about her and what I want for her.
More than anything, I want to set a good example for her. I want to show her that food is not the enemy I once thought it was. I want her to love and take care of herself. I want her to be kind to others.
I’m excited to watch her explore the world and discover new things. What kind of person will she become? Where will her journey take her?
