    Scared to eat.

    Strangest thing in the world I just said f* it at a barbecue and took a bite of a rib. Just one. It stayed down was delicious. Hours later had another bite. I was like how that went down easier than an egg or any type of chicken I've tried? Everyone's body is so different. Mine is different from itself from day to day it seems.[emoji2376] Sent from my SM-G950U using BariatricPal mobile app
  2. Feb 24th here. Was having a hard time mentally and physically in the beginning but it's been getting better along the way. 20lbs down since surgery day. Moved into soft foods this week and I cant believe how many things I cant eat for another 3 or 4 months. It's hard having the family sitting down to burgers and or pizza and I'm like no thanks I cant eat that yet. Then I get the you should just try a couple of bites. Yeah nope. If I take too big of bites I still have this rock in my stomach feeling. I'm thankful that I can keep things down now and the heartburn has subsided. Still tired more than I'd like to be but I do notice once I do get moving I have more energy longer and can walk further with less joint pain. Everyone keep up the good work!

    Substance use after WLS

    Oh man. This is so what I want to avoid. I posted earlier about how easy it would be to pick up my old self destructive habits. Mainly any of the ones that make you not feel hungry anymore. I havent tried it but the temptation is real. I wouldn't try it because it could turn into a coping mechanism instead of a weekend party time thing and then it's never any fun again as you forget how to function and digest food normally without it. Your tolerance is going to be super super low and just a fraction of what you used to do could possibly be fatal. The risks just dont seem worth it. Be careful with whatever you choose to do or not do. Sent from my SM-G950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Failed My Psyche Eval

    Wow I just made a mental health post. I'm sorry your process is delayed a bit. I had a 20 min phone psych eval for my clearance. To be honest I wasnt ready. Here I am 3 weeks after surgery and mentally in a very dark place. I didn't think I was going to actually have the surgery. This was my second time starting to look into it and up until I was strapped on the operating table I didnt believe it was going to happen. I thought something is going to delay or deny me like last time. Dealing with the cold turkey stopping of food is hard, especially with not alot of support. I can see how easy it would be to swap out eating for Any other self destructive habit and I'm trying so hard to not do that. Best of luck to you on your journey. It may not feel like you need it but hopefully you'll get the tools to deal with the psychological effects of the surgery and have such a better time adjusting post op than if you wouldn't have.
