March Sleever Update

Recommended Posts

So, yesterday marked one month since I had my surgery. I have lost 18 pounds since surgery and 10 pre-op. All together, almost 30 pounds in 6 weeks. I have to admit, I am rather pleased with the progress so far. There was a two week stall in there where my body rebelled against the fact that I was only consuming about 500 calories, but now that I am on solid foods, my body is MUCH happier and it seems like I am losing about 1-2 pounds a day. It's crazy.

Things learned thus far:

Eating slow is a lot harder than anyone can explain

Getting in all the water and protein is a full-time job

Most of the time, things smell better than they taste

Most of the hunger really is in your head

Check out clothing, fashion mags, etc. instead of watching Food Network

Crystal Light = best. thing. ever.

Depression post-op is a reality. It's also a choice - every day.

I am sure there are more things I have learned, but for now ... I am just trying to enjoy the ride.

Oh you are doing fabulous! You list is right on...exactly what I remember happened to me at first. Mostly now I just deal with the head hunger. Especially since food taste better now.
