We all like something for nothing, don’t we? I am always delighted when I get a coupon. I love a good coupon! Like this one I got a CVS the other day. I especially liked that on it, it addressed me as Miss, but that’s another story. But is this coupon really something free?
I don’t think there is much in life that is free. Now I am not a pessimist. I am actually the biggest optimist going. In fact I am an optimistic to my own determent sometimes. I’ve always been a worker. I don’t have an issue working hard for what I want. Maybe that is why I have a sense of initial delight when I get a coupon or something for “free.” This coupon wasn’t free. It is an enticement for me to come back and buy more. And maybe I’ll use it and maybe I won’t. I could just crumple it up and throw it in the trash.
Ok where am I going with all of this.
Well, for those of us who have had weight loss surgery, we have been given a tool, maybe we can call it a coupon. It doesn’t mean we are all going to use it the way it was intended. And I can tell you it won’t be easy using it. But we have a choice whether we use it or not.
After a few years post weight loss surgery most people can eat pretty normally and tend to stray from the rules. I for one have done that and I know many others who have. Now our new tool will keep most of us in line but we can gain weight.
What I want to tell you is that if you choose to use this tool as it was intended it will be a huge benefit to you in long term weight loss and maintenance. Don’t crumple up your coupon and throw it away. Don’t throw away your weight loss surgery dreams after a few years. Continue to embrace your tool and use it as it was intended.
Work hard and use the tool, you will be successful and although I still believe nothing is free and weight loss surgery is certainly NOT easy. It will work!
