Hi Lisa

The only thing wrong with not telling people you have had surgery is that it makes it appear to be something to be ashamed of when it ISN’T!! If you broke your leg, would you be ashamed at having to use crutches? Would you be ashamed to wear a hearing aid or have a pacemaker fitted? WLS is simply a tool to help us. I Look people right in the eye and proudly tell them that I have asked for help and have been lucky enough to have been given it. It’s not a shameful secret!

Having said that, it is a medical procedure and absolutely no-one else’s business. It’s your right to keep it private. Just make sure it’s for the right reasons. I think being ‘loud and proud’ is the first step towards self value and, let’s be honest, lack of that is what got us all here in the first place right?

Love Doodah xx
