    • I might tell a few select and close family and confidante's.
    • It will depend how I feel that day.

I'm really not shy about it at all. I typically tell people when they ask about my weight loss. All of my family knows. I don't post about it on Facebook or anything though.

My mom said she is on board but I know she is very concerned. She always supports my sister's and I with everything we do. She would never tell me she didn't want me to do it. I just keep trying to reassure her that the procedure has come a long way. I hate for her to be worried though.

I have told my sister and of course my darling knows as we had long discussions about it.  I am sure the rest will all get to know after the surgery.  When I think about it, the reason is probably because I feel a bit like a failure resorting to WLS.  My head still says I should have been able to do it myself which is a result of how we were brought up - you can achieve anything as long as you put in the effort.  Oh well, I want to live rather than exist so if I am a failure in some peoples eyes, so what!!!!!
