2 months post op - 70. Lbs down

Rate this Entry
2 months post op and 70 lbs exactly lost since pre op diet.

So if you are thinking of having the sleeve, a few thoughts from me at this stage:

1) having the sleeve is tough. Not due to the op or healing; but just getting used to the new way of eating and the eternal struggle to consume enough protein.

2) after 8 weeks, I am only just now being able to eat more a few tablespoons of food. I have learnt to listen to my new sleeve and regulate my food intake to create a new wayof eating for me.

3) at first eating was a struggle and i despaired at ever being able to enjoy food again. This passes!

4) support is great. Find someone who doesn't mind hearing about your worries.

5) I can walk without my back hurting. I can swim again. I can traipse around london all day without wanting to sit down. Plane seat belts fit me. I am regaining my life back day by day.

6) i have had to buy clothes because mine no longer fit. I know i will only wear these for a short time before needing to buy new again. This makes me happy. I have gone from 5x to 2x. Next stop is XL.

I dont regret having done this at all. It does become easier - but it is a lifelong commitment. I still have a bundle of weight to lose - and a lifetime of ensuring i keep it off ahead. But after the first 8 weeks...YIPEE!
