Two weeks since surgery! (And my easy crying lol)

Recommended Posts

My two week anniversary today (lost 10.4 kilos since my bypass, 22.93 pounds) and generally had good progression over the time.

I’m shocked by how little I need to eat so far in purée section but presume this increases over time.

Biggest shock is how easily I cry over emotional or sad things. Cried seeing someone who I thought might be homeless yesterday. Not that I was emotionless before but gee, this has been a ride lol

I have had moments of regret and realisation of what I paid to have done to me. I doubt these will
Continue past a point but my mind has been my biggest enemy, the rest, so far, has been good.

I had "buyer's remorse" the first couple of weeks. It's common - and people usually get over that pretty quickly.

a lot of women notice crazy hormones the first few weeks or months of surgery (weird menstrual cycles and emotions all over the place). It's because estrogen is stored in fat cells, and it's released during rapid weight loss. It'll stabilize once your weight loss slows down.

The kick to the hormones after this major surgery is a massive factor in contributing to your emotional flux. Also dont forget that the anesthetic will also be playing merry havoc. It will be okay. 😊

        I would love to be your accountability partner. I had the sleeve in 2021, so maybe I can give you some insights.

        Please message me back, looking forward to hearing from you!
