Nearly 11 Mos Post Op - With Photos



Recommended Posts

I was 281 Lbs at the onset of my VSG journey. I'm happy. What else need be said?

Everyone have a great day!!! I'm off to do my treadmill and continue on until I'm 110% satisfied I'm done. :)

Thanks everyone!! I am enjoying my journey the futher I get down the line :)

wondering1, no I have not had any plastic surgery what so ever. I do a lot of toning workouts and I run as well which I'm sure are the main reasons why my skin has bounced back so well. I am still going to get some though, and matter of fact I'm getting my breasts enhanced and I will get some Lipo in my inner knees which will help with comfort while running beginning September. Right around my one year Sleeversary.

In reality I'm very comfortable here right where I am. I do see some spots I'd like to work on however as far as being full speed ahead like I was in the beginning, I'm just not doing that anymore. I am doing my challenge but for the whole month before this I didn't even try one bit.

Hugs to all in your journeys!! We will all do this together!!

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
