I was sleeved on the 16th of may and what a journey it has been!! I've been through pain, regret and finally happiness. The most difficult part is watching people eat!!! I suffer so much from head hunger it's untrue! I still have to prepare food for my son, and watch my friends eat all the food I loved. But on the upside I'm over 35lbs down I starting next week I can start the pureed part of my diet ( one month of liquids is really hard going) so I'm looking forward to introducing food back into my life!!! It has been so much harder than I imagined, even with all the research I did but it is worth it in the end!!

May 15th here. I understand. I went grocery shopping for my family and realized that it has really changed. I threw Snacks in for my family and made sure I got plenty of drinks and fruit for smoothies. There are flashes of wow that looks good, but then I think I am over 35 down and I smile through it. We are going to make it!! Be encouraged!!! Blessings!!!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
