Sorry for the New Body

Recommended Posts

A moment of reflection: Ok, this is for the now trying to get rid of the past negative stuff. Before, co workers friend and family members... Just eat less and exercise... that's all you need to do... have some self control... push yourself away from the table. "WLS is the easy way out." You don't need WLS you just need to stop eating so much. I can't find something pretty to wear so I'll stay home. Have you heard these before?

Post op Coping skill from the ever growing box of coping skills: A facet: to help cope with the physical change seen in the mirror. These are things I heard and were said to me too. After having the surgery going through post op issues daily, and yes daily... the masses seeing the change and the change continues until there is no more... stuff from the above list.

Now it is... "OH you are too skinny!" "Are you sick?" No boobs + no butt. You get the strangest comments from friend and family... it's not about how you look now... It makes them reflect and maybe not so comfortable about their own situation. It's always a lot easier to focus on other peoples issues and or problems. Turn it around. Make it positive! Learn more about WLS and share what you learn. Be an advocate for WLS and help stop the shaming from WLS and morbid obesity.

BTW: The new body is not new, its been dormant waiting to bloom. ;)

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
