I've been looking at all your incredible before and after photos and it is breathtaking. You all look at least ten years younger ! - I wanted to ask you all something - when i look at your photos I'm looking at them without knowing you at all so I see them without bias. I'm wondering when you look at your "after" photos do you really see the full difference in yourselves ? what I mean is, are they as startling to you as they are to me ?

The last week has been a turning point to me- I'm finally realizing that I'm genuinely petite (I'm 4'11). I'm wearing between a 6-10 depending on the brand and a small-medium top. It's crazy for me to think of myself as normal- I've never been normal, much less on the smaller side of average- heck I was almost a 10lb baby! But I'm finally realizing that my huge gut is really tiny in proportion, and my thighs are actually pretty darn good looking legs.

When I look at my pictures I wonder "is that really me?" I see an incredible difference in pictures. But sometimes when I look in the mirror I still see myself 85 pounds ago. It's a fight to remind myself I'm not that girl anymore.

Leslie...

For me it is not only startling it is equally devastating. I didn't even realize the real difference until I put the 2 pics side by side.

Its like you look at yourself every day in the mirror so you see some changes but not really. I still see a huge person in the mirror even though I have lost what I have. My mind has not yet caught up with my body.

A a current photo (I am not done yet' date=' still in progress). The horse I am riding is on the smaller side compared to what I am used to.

My before photo is of me just standing. I will be honest, it is hard for me to look at that photo, but it is a good reminder of where I never want to go again.[/quote']

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 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 .
