4 Weeks Out

30 pounds in 30 days but it’s been far from easy!

While on purées I was craving “real” food like crazy. The commercials of pizza and ice cream almost killed me!

Now that I’m transitioning to soft foods, I’ve got bigger problems. Almost nothing agrees with my stomach! I feel like I’m either starving or nauseous or actually throwing up almost all the time!

My energy is still subpar (and I’m being generous), but I have been trying to ensure adequate water intake in hopes of improving that in case it’s dehydration (which gastric bypass patients are at high risk for).

With all that said, I still do not regret my decision. I know this is a process. I know that in time things will improve. It’s just taking longer than I anticipated. I am grateful to have gotten the surgery when I did since they are now canceling all non-essential surgeries.
