Clean the junk out of the house.
look at recommendations for food he can eat...usually dietician will give a list
don't force food or make suggestions
be ready for roller coaster of emotions
body changes are normal
libido may tank
when he is full believe him
encourage exercise.....walk first
food tolerances change and what he liked before could change
shopping for clothes can be rough...buy on sale
i needed help showering for first two weeks...those little stitches hurt when you pull too much
sitting on the toilet hurt like hell too..didn't realize how low it was
pack your patience
Be happy for him!
rejoice in his weight loss as well as his NSV (non scale victories)
be open with compliments...men like to hear it too
give him time to adjust
Help,him find good,things to eat...snacks, meals
try not to eat crap in front of him...I told my husband he better hide it or I would throw it away!
hope that helps...
i try to be so supportive but i guess i have feelings of jelousy and hatred that i never thought i would have and i feel bad that i do. i want to not even be around him since his surgery. i feel like a bad wife and person..
This is a great list
Mind if i print it out for my partner to have a copy of.
we are just starting to delve into the meaning of this surgery upcoming and our relationship and where it stand with this change. we have been together 18 years and i cant see her changing, but it would be nice to have some things to help smooth the transition.
the one thing she has done Sue, Is promise me that she will be honest and tell me what she is feelign about everything.
and remind me that she loved me when i was 170 and loves me when im 295, she will always love me. let him hear it.
I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday!
