Feeling sad



Recommended Posts

Hey I’m sure it’s normal to feel a little sad, you’ve made such a life changing decision and it’s okay to mourn that! I believe you’re having a completely normal reaction to the changes of your old self, old habits, old mindset, etc! You should also let your doctor know how you’re feeling, hormone changes do take place when having wls! Praying for your peace 💕

yes - it's normal to have mixed reactions. If you're a menstruating female, you may also be experiencing the infamous "hormone dump" that a lot of people have. From what I understand, estrogen is stored in fat cells, and it's released with the rapid weight loss. It'll eventually stabilize - but I've heard the first few weeks can be touch & go with weird moods and irregular periods.

Sorry to hear that. I am 2-1/2 weeks out, and the happiest I have been in years. I guess it's all about perspective. Just tough it out, as no matter how you feel now, 6 months from now you'll be ready to take on the world !

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
