Three years ago on this day I started my journey

Today marks the anniversary of my VSG. Wow what a journey this has been, with many ups and downs along the way. Although I have experienced regain, I can honestly say that I am in a better mind frame then I was this time last year when my spiral down the rabbit hole took a turn for the worse. It is very much a bitter sweet moment for me today. 

I know I still have a long road ahead of me to get back to where I was two years ago, but just knowing that I made it there once, empowers me to get there again. I still have my tools, although they maybe a bit dusty -- and the resources are out there if I need a bit of extra help along the way.

I would like to extend my gratitude for the kindness shared on here. Falling back into my old habits was embarassing to have to admit. But we can't learn from our mistakes by avoiding the lessons that come with them. Having a safe space to do that is truly invaluable to me. 

My hope for the next year is to continue to work on mindfulness, deal with my emotions as they come, and avoid feeding bad habits that no longer serve me. Thanks all :wub:

Best of luck as you continue to work towards your goal.  I am 13 months out and I can definitely relate to the return of bad habits.  For me, it's grazing. I continue to come here for support, ideas and advice; but only I can control what I put in my mouth.  Like many have said, surgery doesn't fix the brain.
