So, let’s talk about Before and After Pictures. I don’t know about you, but I sure was not interested in having my picture taken prior to surgery. I didn’t need any reminders of how bad I felt inside or outside.
It has made it quite difficult for me. Now that I’m looking for a before picture to post, I can’t find any. I had to scrounge through every file I have just to find a single photo.
Before and After Pictures are really fun to look at and are very motivating. I remember before my VSG surgery, I spent hours being inspired by people’s online photos. So I ask, why is it so hard for me to post mine?
I still have an aversion to the camera. I talk a lot about breaking old habits. I think this is another one for me to overcome. I am so uncomfortable when people take pictures, that it looks like I have a grimace on my face instead of a smile.
There is another thing I noticed too. I still have a nasty little voice in my head. The one that likes to ridicule how I look. I thought that I was finished with her, once and for all. But, there she is, still making those nasty little remarks. Well, I’m still a work in progress.
