Hey, just want to say “hello”...



Recommended Posts

Hi there, I’m new this site and WOW! It’s great! It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for!! I had my initial consult with my Dr. at the end of August. I just finished my nutritional courses and I’m waiting for my final consult to set for Dec 5th. Then I’ll have my surgery date! Yesss!! It should be sometime in January! I’m having the sleeve. Although I’m extremely excited about this decision and very ready for this change, I am also quite apprehensive at the same time.

I have only lost 10lbs so far. I’m trying not to get discouraged with that at this point but rather focus on the positive changes I’ve made up to this point.

I just know I can’t do this on my own. I definitely need support from friends, family, and those who are and have gone through this. I need help, that’s for darn sure! Love reading all your stories and experiences ❤️🤗

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
