Lost 20 and Some Change~!
I'm down 20 solid lbs. Its been 3 months but I'm solidly there and I'm so glad. I feel like I have just enough restriction and I feel that I have the hang of this.
At times I've felt frustrated and as though I was losing too slowly and things haven't changed; but they have:
-I know longer binge eat...I can't. I haven't eaten more than 1 slice of pizza at a time...in the past I used to eat 4-5 pieces.
-I eat much smaller portions and can't comprehend eating the man sized meals I used to normally eat in the past.
-I eat much healthier food
-My heart doesn't pound like I'm going to have a cardiac episode. I had two panic attacks last year where I thought something was happening to me because I was that out of shape. I never want to go there again.
-My BP has gone down to 118-120/70.
-My face isn't swollen
-My WLS pre op brought to light some thyroid issues and the removal of my thyroid.
-I've gone down a clothing size 20 to 18
Things have definitely changed for the better and I'm so glad.
Thanks friends for supporting me...I've gleaned so much from your advice and support.
Happy Happy New Year.
