So my weight loss journey 6 months post op rny



Recommended Posts

So I will tell you a bit about me and my journey. I am a 27 almost 28 year old poly kink non-binary. Pansexual wife to a pansexual man of almost 5 years whom I've known my entire adult life. I've always been heavy. Both my parents had addictions. My mother passed away in January of this year due to a massive heart attack and the issues associated with that. My father was where I got the obesity from he's battled diabetes high blood pressure cholesterol for close to going on two decades now and had a stroke at 35. I when I was diagnosed with diabetes at 22 decided nope I wasn't going to be my grandma who had strokes and 13 heart attacks mind you she was a smoker. Or my father. I was going to beat this. So I took that nasty metformin. I asked and asked for anything better until about 3 years ago I was put on victoza. Mind you I started with a baseline a1c of 9.7 when diagnosed. This most recent trip to the endocrinologist my a1c was 5.1 so low that they are removing the diagnosis of diabetes out of my chart completely. So in September of 2015 I decided initially to persue gastric bypass. I would later around the time of the choosing of my surgery date begin to have a total psychotic break from reality. I had 4 trips to the psych unit in 1 year. And my marriage got very strained. I also got placed on SSDI disability because I lost the ability to fully function after a long two years of medical and mental battles I tried again this time in a much better place. I had been thru months of therapy I was stable on meds and in a great place. I had gastric bypass on August 28th 2018 I had a highest recorded weight of 311 I had started my program at 280 I had a weight the day of surgery of 274. My 6 month post op visit was Thursday of last week I weighed 210. I've lost over 100 pounds in a year.

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....

      1 month and 4 days from surgery and not losing. Actually have gained a couple pounds. Can't figure out what I am doing incorrectly. Have an appointment in a couple weeks hopefully she can sort me out. I don't know if I am not eating enough, not drinking enough, not walking enough. I get 60g of protein min a day, most days more. I have lost only 12 pounds since my surgery and I honestly thought I would be further along then this. Feeling regretful the last couple of weeks and I know it's early on but I feel like my honeymoon is being wasted.

      Hey ya'll. I've been trying to get more protein in my diet. I started tracking what I ate this week and I like it so far. It sort of feels like a game. I've also been trying to eat alot slower. That helps.  My coworker who hasn't seen me in a week said I was slimmer. That made me feel good! lol Tomorrow, I have 3 appointments. I have my weight management, my psych and my visit to my primary care. They recently changed my primary care doctor so I'm looking forward to meeting this new person. Tomorrow is a big deal for me. I promised my nutritionist that I'd lose 3 pounds the next time she saw me. (I don't know why I said that) She told me she believed me because of the determination in my voice. idk ya'll. This whole process is scary. I'm scared of starting over. Last month, I weighed 205.5 LETS SEE how much I weigh in at tomorrow. Send positive vibes ❤️
