the only (advice) i want to give is the following (take it or ignore it):
call your doctor if you are hurting or concerned or need (assistance w/questions can i or should i eat/do/drink)
i strongly advise anyone to do what THEIR doctor says, not mine or anyone elses..
use common sense (you cant gain true weight overnight and you wont lose true weight overnight)
eating more calories than you burn off will make you gain weight with or without any WLS
reality is clothes sizes getting smaller is a accurate sign of losing weight (dont focus totally on the metal monster)
you do not have to be at goal in six months…get there when you do…WLS has no expiration date
and last but not least
believe in yourself to give yourself credit..
you know if you eat too much of the not so great food chioices out there
dont say the WLS did not stop you..you stop you…..YOU can control yourself..
(you wont step out in front of a train would you??)
WLS will help you but it wont be the save all as that part is up to you and me
be well and all the best to you.
