  1. Same thing with me. I spent weeks after surgery thinking about food and feeling sorry for myself thinking I could never eat “normal” again. It’s like a break up with food. I wish I would of had someone tell me it passes and things get better. For now, just take it day by day. Your though patterns will change. Just give yourself grace and time. ❤️

    help during Covid 19 stay home

    I’m having trouble trying to not snack during the day. Plus I’m not moving as much and just kinda laying everywhere. I notice when I make myself get up to do something. Like yard work or house work I feel better and the scale turns in my favor. It’s hard and this is not an ideal situation. All we can do is try our best. ❤️

    I’m 6 month post op and my stomach sounds like a bear is trying to get out as we speak. It’s embarrassing sometimes in a quiet room.

    Onederland! What a great feeling!

    I just hit onederland a couple of weeks ago. Never ever thought I’d see the day! Great job!! 💪
  8. My husband was against it (married 17 years). He would say things like “you can loose the weight yourself without this” and be discouraging. He didn’t even stay with me in the hospital the first night, my mom did. Bottom line.. I did this for ME! Be too busy with were your headed then who’s coming with you.
  9. Thank you for this!! Just hit 4 months and stalling since Christmas and was freaking out!

    Missing you

    Chips and salsa. 😖
  14. It’s great that you realize all this. It’s ok. You fell of the wagon. It happens to all of us sometimes. Start now not tomorrow and get right back at it. It will make you feel better on the inside as well.
  15. You WILL feel better. Might not seem like it not, but as the weeks go by, you will.

    I tried hard for the first week to just drink water. Second week I just ate yogurt for protein. I was so stressed about it and finally said forget it. I was still breathing and Alive and that’s all that mattered in the beginning. Lol. I just ate what worked for my tummy and stopped stressing so much early on. You’ll get your protein in due time.

    Honestly I didn’t do any protein shakes as I didn’t like them. The first few weeks I was just in survival mode. I probably barely got any protein daily. I just did whatever I could to get through the days.

    Girlfriend I know exactly how your feeling. I’m now 8 weeks post op but felt the exact same way right after surgery. I was so sorry I got it and cried for almost 2 weeks straight. I still feel this way from time to time when nothing taste the same anymore and I get frustrated. But trust me, it gets better. Just hang in there and take it day by day. I know exactly how your feeling

    4 weeks out

    I stalled at 3 weeks. It was so frustrating especially after watching weight fall off first 2 weeks. About a week later I started loosing again. It’s just your body getting use to the changes. Hang in there

    My ugly truth about WLS

    I can relate with your first paragraph 10000%! I feel the exact same way. I try to explain it to my family and friends but they don’t get it. I’ve felt very alone in feeling this way. Just know you are not alone.
