Hi

Sleeve done 11/29/21. Doing pretty well in my opinion. They don't really prepare you for the mind blown moment. At least that's what I call it. Today, this morning actually it dawned on me... my relationship with food would never be the same. This is a good thing for me. But when it hits you you don't expect that punch. I enjoy reading the comments here. Yall get it.

Your relationship with food can return to where it was pre-surgery. The restriction doesn't last forever so don't rely upon it. It's up to you to learn a new way of eating and cooking.

I agree with you. food is fuel and a chance for good health. That’s a new way of thinking for most of us. I’m finding weight loss (15 months in it now) seems more of a head game. I spoke up for myself at work because now I truly feel I have power and deserve to express my goals and want to work in a team. After that, the weight fell off my body like I’m going on a down elevator. I didn’t need food to express myself. I have personal autonomy. That’s how my relationship with food has changed.

I used food for comfort and to alleviate boredom. It was a sea change to think of it as fuel and nutrition. Five years out and it’s still day by day, but absolutely doable.

This is exactly what I was referring to. It is a daily thing and I'm glad. Beat thing I've ever done.

Because I'm more mindfully eating. Listening to my body and understanding my cues. It's a very introspective process and whe it can be hard understanding and dealing with the triggers. I'm a better person for it.

Just like any annoying ex, food will try to get back in your life at some point, so keep some boundaries in that relationship.😁

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
