6 year surgiversary



Recommended Posts

hey dudes/dudettes

six years ago today (12-15) i was waiting to go into the

OR!! like most others i was terrified - so excited. having

the sleeve was a great decision. i did it!!! i am still around

and able to talk about "it"

i did have my ups and downs, but easy recovery,

all was/is good.

i've enjoyed many wonderful NSV's.:)

buying smaller clothes in a regular store.

sitting in the middle seat of three on an airplane.

i am able to do many normal, basic day to day activities now

that i had difficulty doing six (6) years ago! it's wonderful.

might sound silly, but i love that i am able to bend up and down and

up and down etc., pulling those damnnn weeds on my front lawn!!

no longer run from the camera (especially family pics)

sit closer to the steering wheel. i get in and out of the car with no trouble.

putting on seat belt is no prob.

when i sat down in restaurant booth and movie seat for the 1rst time after

weight loss, i said "these seats have gotten bigger!!:lol:

my health has dramatically improved.!! medication dosages have been

lessened or gone all together.

i KNOW my attitude has changed/improved. i feel better than before about myself.

i am not perfect!! welllll, then again!! LOL

Life is NOT all peaches and cream just cuz i lost weight. i still might have

problems. But the fact that i look pretty damnnnn good, helps me to deal with

some issues better than when i was heavy.

i could tell you more about some problems - but then what would i tell

you on my 7th year surgiversary?:rolleyes:

my sleeve is very smart - it helped teach me how to eat and drink

properly - knowledge of Proteins and carbs and other things. moderation

etc.

at 6 years - my success must/does all come from my head/mind!!

i'm on my own. (no restriction left to speak of) but that's ok.

i remember everything i learned - work hard to follow the rules

all the time. but, once again, even i'm not perfect, really.

sad to say i am 8.3 lbs over GOAL, but i am working on fixing

situation. (guess honesty is one of my better qualities) LOL

see you next year

Kathy

      My name is Jose and I am from the UK, I had a gastric bypass a month ago so I am at the beginning of my weight loss journey.
      I would like to know how many calories I should be eating a day to stay healthy, thank you for your time

        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.
