throwback thursday. I’ve tried to be very honest about my journey after weight-loss surgery. As many of you know, I’ve gained over 20 pounds since having surgery almost 3 years ago. Over the past month or so, i’ve met with my nutritionist twice, re-trained myself on how to eat, written down everything I’ve eaten, and lost 6 pounds! For me, the first year after having wls was easy. I never journaled, I stuck to mostly high protein, low carb foods and the weight fell off. After a year, reality smacked me in the face. Little by little, I gained and gained and gained until I gained around 25 pounds back. It’s been 2 years since I’ve seen the scale move DOWN and that’s an awesome feeling! For a while, I was doubting whether or not I could even lose weight again. I’m so proud of my 6 pound progress and can’t wait to get the rest of this weight off!
