Today I have realized...



Recommended Posts

Today I have realized that this surgery really does play with your hormones and your mind. No matter how much you prepare for it Like I was definitely not prepared for this no matter the Months of consulting and going to the nutritionist. Depression with the sleeve is really ****. Anyone else feeling like this?

There is transient depression as we heal. For no reason, you might wake up depressed, or have it descend upon you.

It's important to know it's temporary and has a physical derivation caused by fluctuating hormones released from your fat as you lose weight, or as a result of anesthesia and having someone inside you messing with your guts. (Your guts produce neurohormones that regulate mood.)

Hang in there. Deep breathe, drink LOTS of Water, do comedy therapy on Netflix, walk a LOT, get outside into sunshine and nature, hug someone hard for a long time! Smile to your reflection in the mirror, get enough sleep, eat your Protein and veg and all will be well in your world soon.

You are 100% correct - See my long post on how i crashed. It is hard and some take it harder, Just got help and get back on track, I did it was not easy and i will say there are times i get confused about my decision.

But look at it as i do .... We both would be dead shortly from some Fat Related disease, We both were not happy with our body/ and life sucked when we were unhealthy - So no way in hell now that we have busted our asses to get healthy are we letting a little mind games mess with us!

Game on Mind - I will win

i cant speak for anyone else yes depression is a big part of why i was obese and tried to hide behind it for 40 some years anyone who knew me would say i was very comfortable in my own skin as an obese man and very confident almost cocky it has taken so much head work and redirection of emotion to keep this going with out falling into old habits and going backwards

ps i was never really comfortable in my own skin still working on that daily

I had the depression too for the first month or two. I was crying everyday wondering why I did this to myself and asking myself why I couldn't just lose the weight the natural way. My recovery was worse than the average and that didnt help the depression either. Eventually the feeling will go away and you it will all start to make sense. Its probably hard to see that now but trust that you will be more than ok.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
