Hi everyone! Just sharing the progress made so far. I was super nervous about my vsg because I'm young (20). Although I'm so early out, I don't regret my decision at all! I'm still learning how to eat. I'm in college and on the go often, so I don't measure out all my meals. Often, I eat and feel a bit sick afterwards which I associate with me probably overeating. So everyday is a learning process. I haven't stepped on a scale in 3 months, so I'm unsure exactly how much I've lost but I will find out in 2 weeks. I did this to not stress over what I eat. I want a healthy relationship with not only food, but with myself and this definitely helped me out with that. I eat a balanced diet (moderate carbs, high protein). I know this goes against what a lot of wls vets preach about, but I didn't want live a restricted life anymore and it works for me. I definitely do have to expand my diet because I'm currently living off P4 protein packs and tuna w/ crackers for 70% of my diet, but I'm working on it!
I don't have pictures with me at my highest weight (330), but the one in the black sweatshirt is pretty close (April 2017). The picture of me in the white shirt was taken yesterday. I felt bloated after a small meal, and was expecting that 330 lb girl in the mirror when I walked by, but I was taken aback when I saw that I wasn't that girl anymore. It's hard for me to see differences. So I decided to snap a photo.
Thank you everyone for the support that I received with all my pestering questions early out and pre-op.
