Hey Kathy,

I'm a dude ;-) I started Pre Op weight was 436. Because I had severe diabetes, I was prescribed a miracle drug called Victoza. That help me drop 50 pounds. The day of my surgery I was 379. Today I weighed in at 194. Total weight lost is 242. Weight lost since surgery 185. It is hard for me to believe myself. And as I left my doctor's office I realized it has been 9 months to the day. I appreciate all of your responses and kind words. I would love to help out anyone that is pre op or post op that is struggling. I don't have all the answers, it has been a struggle, I've been very lonely. I am grateful for receiving the surgery and the outcome. I really think it is part of God's plan for me. On Monday I was told that I have been hired for a job that is going to change the course of my life. This is miracle #2! I am overwhelmed by everybody's responses!

Thank you and God Bless all of you!

hey dude ;)

glad you are so happy that the sleeve and your hard work brought you success :)

many times - people/me isolated themselves while being overweight, don't want to go out, be seen by others :(

hopefully, you'll become more confident in the future, meet more people, and make friends, not feel so lonely :)

starting a great new job

having wonderful people like us around ;)

what more can you ask for :lol:

keep up the good work :)

good luck with the new "life changing" job :)

bet its gonna be great

I have confidence in you :)

keep up the good work for the rest of your healthier, happier, longer life

good luck

kathy

      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 .
