I am her for an update with a lot of excitement! I am 4 months post-up!!!! My life has definitely changed since May 12, 2017. I am no longer on blood pressure medicine and my blood pressure is awesome! I could say that this was the easiest decision I have ever made, but honestly it was not. During the time when I was unsure I began reaching out to people to get real opinions about weight loss surgery. Often times I would watch hours and hours of YouTube videos to better understand the process as a whole. The one thing I could not bring myself to watch was actual videos of surgeons doing surgery. Researching this procedure took me three years but was a huge help to me and I am glad I did.
I am delighted to be down 78 pounds, basically a 3rd grader!!!! Honestly, some days I really cannot see it. Other days I see the weight loss and think about where I came from. Seeing weight loss is sometimes difficult for weight loss surgery patients but creating before/after collages always seems to help. With this process I have found that weight loss surgery support groups are a great help. Seeing other women and men living their lives after weight loss surgery is the best thing about being open with my weight loss surgery.
Being a person who buys clothes based on the fabric content has become a little easy for me. I continue to try everything on and it’s super weird buying smaller clothes. I went shopping recently and stood in a dressing room where everything fit or was too big. That has never happened to me in my life. I had to pick and choose what was worthy of my coins, I ended up buying my top three items. Thank you all for reading my most recent update, until next time!
Which surgery did you have, and i’m proud of you, maybe one day I can get to that point and be healthier
I had gastric bypass surgery. I have other blog post about it and how I made my decision.
