In my opinion: you went and had your guts rearranged because you needed help, a tool, to change your life.
.
Many nutritionists, "experts", etc will talk to you about "balance", moderation, etc. Personally, I say "bullshit". Most of us are not wired for moderation. If we were, we wouldn't have needed surgery.
.
So, MY TAKE on it is this: think of food like $$money$$.
.
You have been spending freely, like there was no tomorrow, for a long time. You are now on a very limited "budget".
.
Your stomach holds very little. The space that you have needs to be "spent" wisely.
.
Protein is like your house/rent payment. It comes 1st.
Right now, it's about all you can afford. If you don’t make that payment, then not so good things will happen. Protein is something we can’t get from pills and it is essential to our health now more than ever.
.
Next it is time to pay the utilities, all that stuff we don’t like but NEED, that is your water/fluids and vitamins. Take care of these essentials, your life literally depends on it.
.
All the vital stuff paid for, ok you have a little extra cash like 50 bucks, use that on your veggies/fruits. It is like buying running shoes, an investment back into yourself.
.
Lastly if you have really done well budgeting, then there is mostly like a little extra to buy something fun and not super important, this is where you spend it on carbs/delish drinks etc. It simply can’t be the first place you spend your budget but the absolute last (and some people don’t do this at all).
.
Use your tool while it's the strongest and give your body what it NEEDS with what little space you have available.

We hosted Sacramento area WLS meet up and had such a wonderful experience.
.
Meeting these true survivors and warriors in person is absolutely uplifting and inspirational.
.
Thank you all and already planning the next one!
.
FYI - anyone in the area is welcomed!

After successfully completing “5k to yo couch”, I finally got a few early miles in.

Face to face Friday.
.
Having a supportive partner has been so vital to my health.
.
Even before her WLS, she loved and helped me reach goals I never thought possible and I do my best to help her.
.
She is my pride and joy and way more than a pretty face, sexy curves and booty that rap songs are written about!!

This surgery is not a walk in the park. It takes a concerted effort to actually live in a way that is diametrically opposed to the way we have been living for most of our lives.
.
You don’t just wake up after bariatric surgery and find that you no longer have a taste for a Krispy Kreme.
.
You have to develop that disdain and disinterest in such foods by finding other things that while are not a Krispy Kreme, give you just as much or even more happiness than the soft squishy donut when paired with weight loss.

.
Part of maintaining our weight loss was understanding that good health is not just eating smart and exercising, good health is also something very cerebral.
.
It is the mental game that can be the toughest. If you beat yourself up verbally all the time your mental health will suffer and that will effect your over all health.
.
None of us are perfect.... not everyday will go as planned!! Roll with the punches and take life one day at a time.
.
A bad choice does not make a bad day. Stand up, dust off and go forward, don’t let a few bad choices stop all the amazing decisions that got you to where you are today.
.
Seeing the scale go up or down won’t prevent us from enjoying things like traveling to Paris and walking the city.
.
Never forget that life is tough, but guess what, so are YOU!

The honeymoon phase is one of the most crucial parts of this Weight loss Surgery (WLS) journey.
.
Much like when you first get married, there is that fog of bliss which hides the reality of bills, housekeeping, laundry, kids, work and other habits that have not had a chance to frustrate you yet.
.
The same fog of bliss happens with WLS, when our guts are rearranged we have no idea that we are no longer the captain.
.
We truly don’t grasp that we have absolutely nothing to do with the massive rapid weight drop during the honeymoon phase. It is during this pivotal time that some will say “hey WTF, I can still eat all the same crap and lose weight”. They will think “dam if I lost 70 pounds eating McDonalds, then I must be doing something right”. The truth is that during this phase you could be stuffing your gullet with twinkies and the weight would still come off.
.
But your body is not stupid, after it gets used to how your new digestive system works, the weight loss will come to a screeching halt and even reverse if you keep on the same path of not following your food/exercise plan. You will watch in horror as that scale is now going up and up, even though you are eating the same food you did the last 7-9 months.
.
This surgery should be a turning point in your life, your honeymoon phase is the time to break free of the foods that kept you mentally and emotionally in prison. No other time will the weight come off with minimal work and exercise. Why not make this a time to unlearn old habits, create new ones and see a positive outcome (the weight loss) this won’t ever happen again.
