I am back finally

Monday, February 15, 2010

I have been missing from sp for a while as been so busy packing moving and unpacking but finally I'm sorted weighed this morning and i have lost 7 lbs in the last month so happy about that, I am now starting a big push on exercise and healthy eating as i see the surgeon on the 5th march and i want him to see a big difference after all his hard work....i must admit it has taken me a while to get my head sorted although i can only eat very small portions that does not mean i will automatically loose weight so all those people who think weight loss surgery is a cop out and a cheat you are wrong you still need to work at it, you need to eat the right things, and exercise it does not just happen i admit i thought well i can't eat much so i can just have what i like and found that i was losing nothing even put on a pound or two, so it has taken me time to get my head around it all but finally i got it and so now i am eating healthy and exercising and i am sure that the weight will realy start to come off now.

Weight loss surgery is not a easy way out and it does take time to understand that you can't just eat what you like as i have found out but i am determined to shift this weight and by having 3/4 of my stomach removed i have to make this work it was a drastic measure to take and i admit i thought i could just eat whatever i wanted and the weight would drop off but i have found that is not so and you still need to work hard to get the results, so i am ready to do this correctly and finally loose all this weight.

Since the op back in october i have lost 49 lbs but still have a long way to go to reach my ideal weight but I'm gonna do it.....

    Hello there, I have an idea of what you are going through, my mom had 34 of her stomach removed due to cancer back in 1964. I helped take care of her for a little while.

    You can do this, I know that getting one's mental thinking ajusted to the task at hand, eating healthy with every bite, due to the fact that one stomach is small and cant hold much of any thing.. how do you do with the water needed. Sip on water all day long.. to not get dehyraded. emoticon
