Recommended Posts

I get a lot of messages from people just getting started, or just getting to normal food, and I remember being there. I remember never believing that I would be able to eat something decent. Well, here's a little nugget for everyone, and for me, seeing what others were eating really helped me wrap my head around all of it.

Everyone wants to know what eating postop equals or they need visuals for reference. Tiff's lunch for today. 5 tortilla chips with salsa, 1fajita w/ 2tbsp of refried Beans, 1tbsp sour cream, 4 small strips of grilled chicken breast meat & lots of sauteed onions!!!

I tear off the majority of the tortilla. 2 years out, I could technically fit more in if I wanted or really ate super slow, but this is my standard lunch portion size. I'm completely satisfied and really love the restriction. Pretty mushy meal when all factors are considered, but here's proof life post vsg is very doable and normal food is possible!

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
