Throwback to four years ago when Mr. G. and I were still long distance (he was in LA, I was in DC), and I came to visit him in California. At this point, I was lazy, depressed, barely moving, eating takeout every day, and could barely go up a hill without taking a hundred breaks. I was also the SAME weight I am now. I was the SAME weight last year when I changed my eating habits 100%, worked out almost every day, went hiking all the time, did races every weekend, and counted every single calorie that went into my mouth. Something ain’t right.. No standard tests came back from the doctor giving me a reason why I suddenly couldn’t lose a significant amount of weight anymore, or why my “set point” seemed to be 237lbs whether I worked out and ate 1,200 calories a day, or stayed in bed and ate takeout twice a day. I’m really hoping this surgery fixes whatever the fuck is wrong with me, but I’m still really tempted to go to an endocrinologist and try to dig deeper. I need ANSWERS. I’ve lost 70+lbs multiple times before, but these past few years I lose 5-10lbs and that’s it - no mas! I really just can’t take it anymore! I’m 35 and want to enjoy what’s left of my most active years while I still can! #WLS, #VSG, #Obesity, #WLSInstaCrew, #WLSInstaFam, #MyFatLife, #PreWLS, #VSGInstaCrew, #VSGInstaFam, #GastricSleeve, #PreVSG, #WLSJourney, #VSGJourney, #VSGDiary, #WLSDiary, #TBT
I’m already struggling with what to wear! Everything looks sloppy on me I have always had big shoulders and a wide chest but since iv lost a lot of my weight around my top section all my clothes look funny ohwell only a short while not a long while lol
I’m just gonna jump on the old bandwagon - here is my #TBT from senior year of high school. Notice anything different from others who have posted??? I wasn’t obese!!! I didn’t gain my weight until I got to my 20s, I BLEW UP around age 22 when I started my office job. (I had a chubby phase when I was 13 that lasted a year) Gaining weight was hard on me emotionally. Because I knew what it felt like to be thin. I saw how people treated me differently. I stopped getting attention from guys. It wasn’t that I was “ugly”. I always thought I was cute and always tried. But things were just different.
I tried and tried to lose weight every way I could think of on my upward climb to 255. But I just couldn’t do it by myself. I needed a tool. I reached my 30s, still trying, 31, and then finally I just got fed up with my life. And I decided to go for the gastric sleeve. Best decision of my life. If you want to know more about my experience with vertical gastric sleeve or VSG, please visit my YouTube (link in bio) I have a video there titled my VSG experience. :)
