4 months post op and I am loving it!



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I would like to share how great it is to finally see the hardwork and sacrifices I've accomplished. My HW is 230lbs, SW is 215 and I am currently 173 lbs. I will say this that it is not an easy way out! It is so hard to give up everything that you were accustom too. But having healthy issues like Diabetes... 300-400 blood sugar everyday, shortness of breath and even time to spend with my kids are so limited.. That is why, I decided to change, to go with my WLS! It is the best decision I have ever made in my life. My husband along with my children are very happy to see me live longer! So for you out there who are still deciding to do WLS, I say, DO IT!!! Everything will be okay! I have attached my before and after pics! God bless you all! Have a wonderful Christmas!!!post-139269-14507971346163_thumb.jpg post-139269-14507971735024_thumb.jpg post-139269-14507972495116_thumb.jpg

When did you start to feel normal again? I'm not even 3 weeks out but I must say I'm sort of miserable. I want my energy and strength back. I want to be able to have an actual day without every thought being me trying to get Protein, food, Water & meds in.

you will get there. It takes time. At 3 wks, I was tired all the time, constantly struggling with getting water and protein in, getting sick from my shakes and was just miserable, but I'm 3 months out now and my life is better than normal. My energy went through the roof, the sipping becomes easier and more routine, and eventually it just becomes so much easier and the weigh starts falling off and that makes it great too! I'm 60lbs down from surgery and over 100lbs down from my highest weight. You will get there. Your body just needs to heal right now. ????

I am so sorry for not responding right away. I just logged in again after a long time. They are right, it takes time .... Just make sure you do not skip your Vitamins and always drink Protein shakes... That helped me a lot with energy! I never felt weak during my time. Think positive that you are doing great! Drink Protein Shake slowly even if it takes you hours! Below is my current pics after 6 months...post-139269-14555979355251_thumb.jpg

Kristen,

Thanks for posting. My surgery is coming up on March 21, and while I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life, I am nervous. It feels better to hear how happy you are after changing your life in this way. Thank you.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
