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 !

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      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...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
