6 months out and amazed every day



Recommended Posts

On April 5 this year I had my rny. A year ago I was told that I was looking at losing 20-30 years of my life because of my insulin need and weight gain. I wasn’t even 30 yet. Now I’m 10 lbs from goal and scared to loss that much because I am just so happy were I am now. I went from a size 18 to a size 4/6 on bottom and a 2-3x on top to a small. I’ve never been this tiny and looking in the mirror is hard some days because I don’t know who I see. But overall I am so much happier. I’ve been off insulin since less than a week after surgery. My asthma is better. And generally my moods have been so much more stable. I am learning to deal with emotions and not eat them (I’ve tried and the physical pain isn’t worth it). And now I am just trying to see how to do these last few pounds till goal without freaking out! Workouts are in my future but for maintenance and maybe I’ll build some muscles . But being so small feels weird. I don’t know what to do with that feeling yet but at least I know it’s there! Anyone else struggle with this?

@ kplumlee1205 we have similar stats, my surgery date was March 20, 2017 Hw:240, Sw: 232, CW 153..

I struggle sometimes when I look in the mirror and especially in pics BUT I'm thankful... I have Lupus and since surgery I'm down from 10 pills a day to 2 pills a day! My goal now is to maintain and tighten up
