WLS as i see it

i feel we as WLS patients have a tool to help us lose weight

but it is really up to us to make better food choices and to exercise..

*as a lap bander, it pains me to see people say i need a fill to lose weight..yes those do absolutely HELP but if you eat around the band (due to being too tight) or eat sliders as its easier then eating lean proteins, fills wont help*

i started out with a BMI of 62

i was as wide as i am tall yall…

i am not perfect

the last two months have been hard on me mentally due to family issues

with my mom and now my hubs parents..and of course missing my son who is stationed in the UK

with the USAF

life is life

it passes with every tick of the clock

dont waste it..pondering am i doing this wrong or why is it not working (it is but you

are still thinking about dieting and not health) AND most want overnight/quick without

having to change what they DO eat and how they do not MOVE..

with the WLS tool of your choice

add eating better quality foods and making better choices most of the time

toss in some little exercise (start walking) even if 5 min and SEE what happens

YOUR life will get better

but YOU have to give it a chance

the person looking in the mirror is the one who holds the key to your success or not

i truly believe that…

i gained weight and got super morbid obese because i over ate a lot of crap/fast food and sat on my fast ass…now i am doing the OPPOSITE…and the lap band/plication only helps me not eat so much…it tells me when i had enough but letting me know (it talks to you if you listen)

dont wait

just do what you know you need to do

follow what your doctor advised for the BEST results

if you are hurting or in pain or concerned or worried

or wondering what to eat or drink or WHATEVER, please reach out to your DOCTOR

the people on this forum are fabulous but they are NOT your doctor. you need to stay

in contact with the people who operated on you..

dont wait

dont make excuses

every day that passes, we do not get back

and lastly

IF YOU ARE LOSING INCHES YOU ARE LOSING WEIGHT

IF YOU ARE BUYING SMALLER CLOTHES OR YOUR CURRENT CLOTHES ARE TO BIG,

GUESS WHAT

YOUR WLS IS WORKING
