When you are a couple, and one decides to have bariatric surgery, many fears may set in. One of the biggest ones may be “will my partner/spouse still love me when I’m thinner.” Maybe they are much thinner than you and love a bigger person. Maybe there’s a dependency on them to help take care of you which potentially could fade leaving them unneeded. Maybe there is a certain expectation of you being a bigger person that they cannot live without. Maybe they are afraid that you will leave the relationship when you are thinner. All of these things promote fears of weight loss in many couples. Most times the person deciding on surgery is looking for a healthier life and does not take the time to consider how their partner/spouse is going to react long term. Unfortunately, the support may not be there and fighting begins. There could even be sabotaging of ones journey to prevent the weight loss. So, if you think you have a partner who may feel this way, have an open, honest conversation with them explaining your decision and why before moving forward with surgery. It is very difficult to attain success on this journey when you are surrounded by constant negativity. Take a step back, assess the entire picture of your relationship and be clear of your expectations before beginning this journey. Success is much easier when you have the support, love and encouragement that you need. #weightlossjourney#weightlossexpectations#weightlosscommunity#vsg#vsgsurgery#vsgcommunity#sleevesurgery#sleevegastrectomy#vsgproblems#vsgissues#bariatricsurgery#bariatriccommunity#bariatricissues#bariatricsupport
I haven’t done an update in so long! Im staying steady with my weight, I haven’t been eating the best but, I’m definitely not eating like I did with my first! I haven’t gained any weight and am feeling pretty good so far. She’s sitting very very low and that’s usually where my pain comes from lol but with the help and support of a belly band and some Tylenol I can keep those pains at bay. My baby shower is next weekend and I am so excited for it and due date is 3 months away but seems so much closer😩💜today I am 27 weeks 2 days! I love this little girl and her whole family is so excited to meet her!
Well another work week is over for me. It's finally been a decent week. The last month and a half has been rather rough on me. From saying goodbye to the best woman I've ever known, to trucks breaking down (even the rental I had while my 18 wheeler was in the shop) to 3 and 4 hour late releases from the warehouse. Those made for long long days. Mix that with the cold weather and I have not been working out like I should. This is already the hardest time of the year for me. Last winter I put about 30 pounds back on. Thankfully I was able to drop it fairly quickly. So now I'm just focusing on damage control. Then probably about March, crank it back up! Anyways, I haven't been posting much and just wanted to check in! Hope all of y'all are out there killing it!
What a ripper Saturday! I had an amazing brunch today, followed by a walk, a lay down, a longer walk with the pups, a cooking adventure and topped off with my favourite chocolate ever - Haighs. And I hardcore adulted by rationing it out to myself instead of inhaling the bag 😂. Today’s #vsgeats were:
B: Dukkah salad w/poached eggs, smoked salmon, mushrooms, tomatoes, feta, pumpkin & spinach
S: Medium cappacino
S: Choc mint protein shake
D: Chicken & salad
S: Haighs rations
I also had tea, instant coffee & protein water. Upping my protein is making a huge difference to how I’m feeling. I like it a lot! 🤤💕🙌 #vsg#vsgcommunity#wls#fooddiary#wlscommunity#adelaidewlsbabes#saturday#alltheprotein
It’s a struggle still. I have my good days and bad days. More bad days than I should have due to the last few months. I’m struggling. I admit it freely. #wls is no joke. It’s not the “easy” way out as do many people think it is. It’s a TOOL. A very useful tool when you follow your doctors plan. The struggle comes with changing my habits that I’ve spent years having and getting used to the rapid weight loss. I’m still in the mindset that I can’t fit in that chair, too big for that and so on. Getting up enough courage to try it is hard because I’m so used to trying and having it fail or this is the best one...people seeing it and making fun of me. That’s the hard one. I wonder why people have to be so cruel. That’s another post for another time.
#150dayspostop so here's a nice way to celebrate being 150 days post op! My CMO got me a bottle of wine with my face on it 😂😂😂
Some backstory for you...
As you know I pledged to do 6 months alcohol free because of Steeevie which began 1st July. .
My work peeps knew about my abstinence from alcohol but didn't know why. They were fine about me not drinking but begged me to get involved when we had our Christmas party. The compromise was, they get me wine with my face on it and I'll drink at the Christmas party.
The party was Thursday and your girl had a couple cocktails 💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾 to be fair I broke my abstinence on my birthday 3 weeks ago but still.
I love my winnnneeeeeeeeeee!!! Gonna keep it forever. ❤ my work peeps too
HUGE SHOUT OUT!!! @adz_in_control
This incredible guy has just recently smashed out his first ever 50k ultra i have seen Adam transform and smash his running goals as he goes he has absolutely killed it! I feel like we both have a very similar drive and that determination to get to that finish line the meaning behind all of the glory for us is something so strong that the emotion that overcomes us as we do something we once couldn't is something that i can not even explain!
Mate I'm so proud of you, keep pushing through! and many some day soon we can do an ironman together 😉 @adz_in_control
