I've decided to have bariatric surgery. I made the decision towards the end of last year, and I started a separate blog so I could write about it.
Initially I wanted to keep this very private. I just wasn't ready to share it. But there's a lot of stigma around weight-loss surgery, and I like to poke holes in stigma whenever I can.
I'm taking steps to improve my health. There should be no shame in that. If some people are judgmental or feel superior, that's not my problem.
If you want to come along, I'll be writing about this at 85 percent thinking.
