One Month Out!

Sign in to follow this  


It's hard to believe that a month has already gone by since my surgery. I am feeling great and have lost 22 pounds so far. I'm not sure if anyone else went through this, but I feel a little "down in the dumps" sometimes when I see others eating yummy food, or if I have to quit eating WAY before I want to. How selfish is that, I want to lose weight but be able to eat like I used to. I am very happy that I had the surgery but making the lifestyle change is a little harder than I expected. I am however eating new foods all the time which makes mealtime interesting. I am still sticking to the low carb plan, but I am not stressing out about it. I just eat when I'm hungry and that seems to be working just fine. :biggrin0: The tender spot on my left side finally quit hurting, yea!! I can actually sneeze without any pain. I can't stand my chewable vitamins but I'm trying my best to at least get one in every day, I'm supposed to be taking two. The calcium chews are yummy and give me that chewing satisfaction. I promised pics after I lost 25 pounds, so only three pounds away! I?ll be in Mexico next week, so I'll post an update as soon as I get back on the 30th. Thanks for reading and support, I really appreciate it.

I am 4 weeks out and finally trying new foods, I still can't eat very much before I am full, so I have changed the way I approach it. I take a very very small bite and chew it till it becomes vapor, my fork is on the table and not in my hand. I also talk more at dinner, that helps with time. So just as I am full the rest of the group is finishing up. Seems to help make it more normal. By the way I have been to the gym almost everyday, can't stand chewable vitamins, switched to only swallow pills, and have lost 47 lbs so far.
