My 6 months out update!

on 7/16/17 8:00 am

morning everyone!

Today marks my 6 month out anniversary from RNY. Started rough but as of April things have been smooth sailing. My biggest issue was being able to eat. Nothing tasted good and I couldn't eat more than 1/4 cup for the longest time. Now I've been able to eat 1/2-3/4 cup at meals now and able to eat around 900 cals a day.

This has been an amazing tool and I feel so lucky to have gone through this. I feel great (besides the "fat brain" still popping its head around from time to time").

I was 324 when I started this, 304 at opti, 290 at surgery and now 203.3. I'm 5'9 for anyone that's wondering. I have bat wings for arms, saggy belly and boobs but hopefully one day once I'm finished losing I can get that stuff corrected. After being larger for a good majority of my adult life and having 2 kids my stomach is a mess but I've learnt so much since I started this process. I've proven people that didn't think I could stick to it wrong (my mil and a few others). I'm happy and treating myself much better than I did before.

Ontario WLS friends- The best advice I got here: call for cancellations. Quickening the pace has been best for me. I know some who preferred the pace set by their centre. Do what's best for you. You are your own best advocate in health care and in life. Shine on, amazing people!!
