Emotionally roller coaster:

Yesterday I was so upset! I didn't blow my top but I wanted to. I finally ended up taking my anxiety meds and calling it a day. Today I'm super depressed.

Anyone else running the gamut of emotions?

Yep, I did today as well...

Hey everyone, just checking in cause I haven't in a while. My scars are healing nicely. They're little pink thin things. Much, much better than the ones from my gallbladder out where they sealed the incisions with glue and the scars left are big circular deals.

Had my first post-op appointment with the surgeon and my dietician cleared me for all foods, not just soft. However, I've still been sticking to soft foods just cause they're easier on the tummy. Getting in around 500-600 calories a day, which my dietician mentioned was to be expected this far out. So feeling better about that. I had been worried that I wasn't eating enough even though I sort of felt like I was eating all the time. Still so strange to feel like I'm kinda constantly eating but still only be eating so few calories. I am down to 242, so my stall is long gone, which yay! It lasted about 2 and a half weeks total when I was at 252-251. Total of 28lbs lost since surgery on the 8th which is pretty amazing. Also down 12 inches over the past 3 weeks, not all from one spot but an inch or from various spaces (thighs, biceps, chest, hips, waist, neck).

Starting to feel more "normal" again which is amazing! Getting on soft foods and more regular foods really really helped. I think my favorite meal right now is just deli turkey, cheese, and some olives or dill pickles.

Hope you are all doing well too!

Wow! You lost alot! Good for you!!:) I'm at 5 weeks today and I've lost only 15lbs:( it's very hard to stay positive and be patient right now bc of that...so I've been doing what I do best unfortunately and eat the wrong things or eat too much. It really stinks! I was trying to be what I call active which isn't much unfortunately but now I haven't even been doing that! Idk whats going on with me...I had 2 premiere Protein Shakes today and my 4 chewable vitamins and still hurt all over and have no energy. I probably didn't have enough Water though now that I think about it. Gosh, I gotta start logging everything I eat and drink. I have been slacking with so much since I've had marital problems going on, family issues, and daughter going off to college, and my 2 lil boys are just driving me nuts this summer:/ I need to step my game up I guess ughhh
Well anyways, glad your healing real well and feeling good! I hope to join you there soon lol

I hear you, Christina! I feel the same way. I had to buy different Vitamins because the chewables made me nauseous. I barely lost any weight and I have no energy whatsoever. The scale finally moved today so I'm feeling hopeful. If we keep doing what we are supposed to be doing, it's going to work!

      I don't know when I reached Onederland but just weighed myself @198. 😁

      Constantly amazing myself. This is probably a normal experience for all of us on a WL journey.
      This morning I was at 174 pounds (78.9 kilos). I can perceive that my brain hasn't really caught up to this yet, as I still feel obese, even though I am close to being considered a normal weight, not even overweight. The smaller clothes, the higher fitness level, the great blood work results, the energy- these all tell me a totally different story!
      I have NEVER EVER been, never, not once in my life, nada, zip, zilch, zero times, been "thin." I think this explains some of the disconnect between the reality of my body and the stuckness of my brain. I do have confidence that my mind will catch up soon ❤️
      Not really having the experience of true hunger yet, but I can perceive the peristalsis of my digestive tract. And I am getting very good at spotting head hunger, and simply noticing it, like a Buddhist.

      I ordered the Barbecue Protein Crisps here from BariatricPal, and find them quite tasty. The Ranch flavour, not so much. They are very filing and have a satisfying crunch.
      I continue to shrink, and am amazed at the changes all over my body. Visually, it is striking to me. In the mirror, I look thin to my eyes, but I don't feel thin, although I can see more bones and veins and tendons and floppy skin. Cardio-wise, It takes a lot more effort to get my heart rate up and I'm now monitoring which heart zone I can get into and for how long. My resting heart rate is the lowest it's ever been.
      If I think about it, and I left myself feel it for a time, I weep (like, boohoo cry) with joy. I am so grateful to myself, and proud of myself for having the courage to have taken the leap to better health.
