A HUGE Change in 127 days
« on: February 09, 2018, 01:49:49 pm »

On Oct 5th, 2017 I had gastric bypass. Officially down 60pounds but it is more like 75 pounds.

If anyone thinks that surgery is an easy way out is sadly mistaken.

Wow...you look great Raylin.  I admire you for taking the step. I would have been too scared.  I know it is not easy as I have had a couple of friends who have done it.  Best of luck with your weight loss.

I hope you are happy about it.  I hear so many things about changing of eating habits, no caffeine (yikes!) etc and heck, I can't do that now  :-)   Congrats

AWESOME Raylin.  My Nail person had it done a year ago, she has lost a whole person and more.  I know how difficult it is and I admire the heck out of you.

I also have known a few people who've gone through various kinds of bariatric surgeries--definitely not "easy", and the lifestyle adjustments that are necessary after the surgery can be really challenging.  Congratulations!

kckc,

There was a few times where I was wondering why the heck did I do this. I can't eat poultry or fish since surgery. Lots of the stuff tastes too sweet now.

I have lost lots of muscle tone which I need to build it back.

Can't stand coffee & most teas, some green tea I can do. Drinking lots of water.
