I DID IT! Conquered my fear of fish and snorkeled. I didn’t pass out like last year, and I actually didn’t swim through as fast as I could! It’s all because I drank 2 margaritas before… Liquid courage. #proudmoment (at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon)
I got RNY on 1/7, and I've lost 35 pounds but I still feel like I look the same... how long did it take before you started to notice a difference?
When you no longer fit in your pants, week after week and have to keep buying new ones from Salvation Army or goodwill lol. I would say about 50bs you’ll see a difference. I’m sure there is differences in your face you may not see. That’s where it first started to show for me.
How long did the whole process take? Like from when you were initially referred for surgery to the day you got it?
It took me 6 months. Almost exactly. April 2012-October 2012. The only reason it took 6 months is because I have cigna for insurance, and they required me to go to the nutritionist for 6 months. Otherwise, I would have probably had it done in June of 2012.
Are you where you want to be weight wise??
I still have 20 more lbs I’d like to lose. Not too bad, but I’m very fuckin proud of where I am because I NEVER in my life thought I’d be this size. Size 12 is about average now a days. I’m happy, but I still won’t give up on being even better.
Are you disappointed that you're not thinner?
Not at all! I’m still a work in progress sweet heart!! I still have at least 20lbs that I would like to lose, I really need to get back into the right mind frame to get rid of it, but the best part about it all is… I know I can do it, and nothing will stop me, I just have to do it when I’m ready.
Went to Atlantic City last night with friends… Let’s just say I haven’t gotten out of bed since I got home. Wicked bad hangover. It was an amazing night.
would you give us the blogs url??
If you ask for it not anonymously, and I trust you! lol
I’ve had so many guys tell me they aren’t interested in a relationship that I’m actually just used to it.
Why did you choose gastric over the vertical sleeve? Just curious. I'm going through the decision making progress.
I just felt it would force me into eating healthier options. I basically wanted the fear of ‘dumping syndrome’ to keep me making good choices.
Guys THIS IS A BIG DEAL!!
I have a Valentine tomorrow for the first time ever!!!!! He’s not my boyfriend or anything as of now, but I am spending valentines day, with a guy. This is historical…. Even though we already discussed how we don’t give a shit about Valentine’s day. Oh… And he’s British :)
