It’s hard to believe it’s already been 7 months since I had Gastric Sleeve Weight Loss Surgery. I’m down 68 pounds since surgery 120+ pounds total.
Physically I think I’m doing very well. I have pretty good energy. I’m back in the gym 3-4 times a week doing cardio & strength training. I’m hoping to get back in to Yoga soon!
Mentally, it is still a challenge. The holidays were harder then I expected. I’m really feeling the strain of not having food to turn to for comfort and stress relief. Mental life isn’t at it’s best right now.
I can see the physical changes, but It’s frustrating too. My facebook groups are both helpful and depressing. People who had surgery about the same time as I did, or even after, are losing so much mroe weight then I am!! One lady has surgery 6 weeks after I did and is down 100 pounds already!! Guys of course lose a ton of weight quickly, but I’ve got several who are down 140+ pounds in 7 months…and I can’t seem to break 250.
It’s a process and I’ve just got to keep following the path. Even with all the ups and downs, this is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
