So I am 7 weeks post VSG. So much has changed in so little time. I know its just the beginning but I am amazed on how much difference this tool has done for my life.
First off, I had regret. At first I didn't until I started eating real foods. I hated that I didn't enjoy foods as much, that 1 bite and I was done. Now I couldn't be happier with the results. Yes your eating ways change and at first it may not feel as if you've done something good but trust it and just make better decisions and it will.
I have tried pizza, chicken strips, fries, and most of the bad stuff. I didn't realize how bad and strong head hunger and food addiction was until this surgery. I honestly don't like these bad foods anymore. The more I chew the more I realize the taste is different and it just doesn't make me crave it.
My food choices have changed and I am eating better. I also incorporated gym again and I am melting the pounds away.
My heaviest weight was 368 lbs. I am currently 306. I can now walk to my office from my car and not be sweating and out of breath. I can finally tie my shoes and not have to hold my breath while tying them. I walked for 2 hours the other day hiking with my girlfriend and my back wasn't hurting and neither was my knee. My energy is through the roof! I feel happier, better, more alive. I cant wait to see what other amazing things change in my life.
So if you're reading this and are on the fence about getting surgery then take my advice and go for it. It is honestly the best decision of my life. It literally saved my life.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Sorry if it sounds rushed I have been up since 5 am and I am still half asleep lol
