Four Years Today WOW
Mar 16, 2014
I'm in the middle of packing moving in another week and decided I needed to take a breather. While sitting here I just realized that it was four years ago today that I made the best decision of my life and had vsg surgery. I'm not going to say that it's been smooth going this last year (the first three years were a breeze), it's getting harder to stay in control of what I put in my mouth. I have gained about 12 lbs in a year which isn't bad but it does concern me how easy it is to go back to my old ways. I know what I need to do and once I move (cause right now my home is a mess) I can get back to following what needs to be done and lose those pesky 12 lbs. I am still down 102 lbs and still fit into my size 8 or 10 jeans but they are getting a little tight and that is definitely my wake up call.
Well have to get back to packing - uuuggghhh!!! I love my vsg and would do it all over again!! If you are on the cusp whether to do it or not, take it from someone who had arthritis (still have it but not as painful), high blood pressue, and terrible knee pain, who weighed at time of surgery 267 lbs (was up to 298 at one time) was done to 150 lbs at one time (will be there again) do it - it may be hard at the beginning but overall it is so so worth it.
