Happy Feelin's in the air...

Recommended Posts

This will be a quickie. I needed to purge my thought surrounding my first post-op shopping trip yesterday.

Given my previous post and the whole emotional roller coaster thing?I think retail therapy helped a bit. I have a wedding to go to this weekend, and don?t have anything to wear that FITS *grin*

liquid diet on 9/7). To try on a size 20 dress, then a size 18?? After I have been wearing a 22 or 24 (depending on the cut)?totally made my day!

Im certain the size 18 dress was cut WAY big, but still?Just looking at myself in it?thinking ?wowwwwwwwwwwwwww?. I couldn?t stop smiling? I?ve even noticed that my knees & back aren?t hurting as much. I guess 30# can make all the difference in the world.

food again after having NOT for a month. Especially after that chicken salad incident?but we?ll see.

I guess other than that, everything is ok.

I?m looking forward to many more milestones and shopping sprees. And I can?t WAIT to to rock my new SIZE 18 dress at the wedding. *super smile* Nope. Folks ain?t ready?

1stshop5.jpg?w=225&h=300 Yup - wearing this to the wedding!

Thanks again for all of the encouragement, and for taking this ride with me. It?s gonna be full of ups & downs?but it?s sure to be memorable!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 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!!

        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 .
