    Vanessa,
    How are things going? lets see with me I am plugging along weight coming off slowly which is fine. Averaging 1 to 2 textured meals a day, still feel pretty picky about what tastes good to me any more, not always reaching my protein, was trying to not have protein shakes, and getting protein in by eating, that doesn't seem to be working, so back to a shake or bar a day to up the intake...

    you are doing wonderful, and you are right, it will come off eventually. Have you discovered anything you do not like anymore? I find I need lime in my water, don't like coffee anymore, drinking tea. But I do have lots of energy and have been getting lots of things done around the house. I start back to work tonight...

Almost 2 months in

by Vanessa7 on 04-25-2017 at 01:13 PM
It has been a crazy ride. I still can't believe I had the guts to go to Mexico alone for surgery but thank God everything has turned out well. In the beginning i was having some major mood swings but it's gotten better. Those lovely craving never completely goes away but you have to learn to deal with it. As a reminder I like to try on one of my dresses that didn't fit before and I can honestly say...wow.... curves popping out instead of fat rolls lol. It's a beautiful feeling.

22 days post op

by Vanessa7 on 03-24-2017 at 08:28 AM
I can't believe i'm 3 weeks post op. I've been fortunate to not have any issues except 2 weeks of hives from the antibiotics but other than that its been an easy recovery. Yesterday i ate a little more than I have been eating and i felt uncomfortable so i'm going to have to just stick to half a cup of food. The worst part of the surgery is the food addiction still lives on, even after 80% of your stomach is removed. Food made me happy for 30 yrs and I miss it terribly but I know i made the right

At the hospital

Had surgery today and what an experience! So far so good but before almost had a change of heart. The moment right before and after surgery has been the worst. I said a prayer before going under and God took care of me and the others. It's surreal

5 days pre op

by Vanessa7 on 02-26-2017 at 07:37 AM
Unbelievable, it's almost my turn for surgery and seeing my name in the next week's surgery list has left me with mixed emotions. Sad because I'm leaving behind food which has been my everything, scared with the unknown outcome but staying positive, numb because I let it get to this point, and overall happy and anticipating a new beginning where I can start really liking what I see and love myself.

So today my journey officially begins. The last couple of months I have had a hell
