Typical 'southern' girl, you were pretty before surgery.....now you KNOW you look amazing!!!!! Congrats, keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!! I know you feel great about yourself!!!!!!!!!! :001_smile:

Today is my 5 month surgiversary.

Everything is going great...I don't have really anything new to report.

I'm down 67 lbs since surgery and 91 total.

I haven't taken measurements in a while...need to do that soon.

I'm still not exercising very much...wish I could make myself LIKE it. I did walk 2 miles tonight.

I don't log my food everyday but I eat pretty much the same things over and over so I have a good idea where I am on any given day.

I love my sleeve....my hubby named her Veronica. LOL Don't ask..he names everything including our houseplants.

I have so much more energy now and I'm starting to like shopping again. One of my employees came over this evening and I cleaned out my closet and gave her 4 garbage bags worth of clothes. I think I now have about 3 pair of pants that fit...lol

I went from a tight 24 pants and 2x/3x shirt to a 16 pants and a regular xl shirt.

Starting to get a little flabby and wrinkly in my upper arms and inner thighs but it's not too terribly bad yet.

I've had zero problems so far and other than being impatient I've had a very textbook experience.

All my co-morbs are gone which is the absolute BEST thing about losing weight.

I feel like I'm gaining my health back which is the best feeling. I didn't even realize how much my weight was affecting my health and holding me back from LIFE.

To anybody on the fence...I say GO FOR IT..this is the best thing I've ever done myself and I've not had a single moment's regret.

I'm over halfway to goal and hoping I'll make it there. I have great restriction although it does vary. It's a very strange thing to me still.

I had to dig deep to find some before pics because I absolutely HATE pics of myself....and they're quite embarrassing to me. I still don't like the camera so my two post op pics are self pics with my iphone that I took to send to one of my best friends who lives in a different state than me.

You and I were sleeved one day apart and your write-up here is very close to where I am, too. I am down 105 pounds now and similar clothing stats, too. I actually bought a size 14 skirt today - I haven't worn that size in 20 years. Simply amazing.

You are doing GREAT. Like you and other posters said, I would have to dig very deep to find some old pictures of me and be BRAVE enough to post them. I am a chicken shit *lol* .. but I will soon. So many people around me are finally saying something about my weight loss now. It's humbling on one side and a reminder on the other that life has changed significantly already. I am aiming for another 40 pounds.

Way to go! Great post .. thanks for the update.

Wow Blue...you're doing GREAT! Be brave....if I can do it you can do it...post some pics!

I bought a few pair of pants that are size 14 because they were very cheap...but I can't wear them yet. Hopefully soon though!

I'm seriously running out of clothes

Oh my god *lol* .. I will soon, I promise.

I have NO clothes left. I just did a consignment a few days ago and put in pretty much everything I owned. I am having to go and buy things now but what really rocked were the tight new jeans I bought. Waahoo! It was GREAT. I felt so good and the funny thing is that I am not where I want to be yet so I know the best is still coming. I am buying smaller sizes that I can't get into yet, too .. the motivation is there .. it will be soon I hope.

Simply put .. I am proud of you. You are doing great :thumbup1:

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
