Current Weight 149 BMI 27 Happiness 8/10 ๐Ÿ˜‚

It's been a wild ride y'all. Still I firmly believe it was a fantastic choice. You don't know the end results when you begin a project (including tje hiccups) but thays perfectly fine. I don't mind a challenge.

I have started in one place (VSG) changed to another (RNY) which i never imagined as a possibility or necessity for me because i never had reflux prior but i remain excited and hopeful about the future and about all of life.

My weightloss is old news to most people. Its no longer jarring, shocking, surprising, exciting or headlining so I get to settle into real life and stay the course permanently.

Am I afraid of regain? Yes and No.

I am afraid of going above a certain weight 160-170s (Beyonce pre Coachella weight ๐Ÿ˜‚) but everything under that is gravy ๐Ÿ˜ I will not eat myself into a higher range. I also will not exercise my self artificially lower. I spoke with my nutritionist about a year ago about this ans its not for me. If it happens it will be medically induced, and Ya girl will be honestband open about everything going on.

Do I have perfect food habits? Yes and No.

My habits are perfect for me. Balanced. I can eat a salad and dessert. And feel no guilt. Dial up or down my intake according to need. (*I do no/never have food addiction* so in this way I believe I got off easy. If I had to contend with that I'm not sure where I would currently be, but hindsight wise choosen full DS, IMHO anything else is not a good choice)

Do I love my post WLS body more? Yes and No.

I loved my body from the start. Never hated it ever. But when I was heavier I began to become randomly sicker i a matter of weeks. I had to have surgery. No choice really. But now I feel the same way I NEED plastics. No way around it. I don't look horribly melty but I'm heading in that direction if i lose anymore weight.

Have I gained any new insight now vs earlier... You've guessed it! Yes and No.

I'm still the same old GTL albeit updated model ๐Ÿ˜Ž but I have learned to meet people where they are and work with them there amd move on when the path diverges. No more people projects. I have a few real projects I'm still not done with so i need to focus on important stuff ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

I'm a little more chill in certain ways But a little more aggressive in others (i STILL call people out on their BS)

Pics soon I'm on the move...
