Its been 8 months since my surgery (June 27th). I have been struggling this whole time to see my weight loss, and I've struggled with some pretty obnoxious plateaus that has me battling my mental demons that would cave and fall on old habits of defeat. I've started feeling really remotivated. I looked around at before and after pictures of folks here. I looked around on Pinterest as various weight loss blogs, and fitness sites, and woke myself back up. I got a wrangle in on my eating habits again, and cleaned that up, and am back to my hard core workouts after a 3 week hiatus. I was feeling pretty good this morning. I still can't weigh myself at home, because I've yet to buy a scale. I think I will this week. So, instead of weighing myself, I took a progress picture. And for the first time placed it side by side with my starting photo. I was so floored. I got tears in my eyes.

I had no idea.

For the first time, I SAW MY WEIGHT LOSS.

I'm flying again, and so remotivated to remember who I am and who I am proud to be. I am proud to be healthy. I am proud to love to workout! I love myself, and I am worth it to keep fighting this fight. I made the best decision of my life when I deceided to get sleeved. I am no longer pre-diabetic. I am no longer on bloodpressure medication. I am starting to return regular blood tests on my PCOS. And these pictures this morning.... how can you go back now after coming this far???

My before taken the morning of surgery. My current "during" taken this morning.

      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 .
