Meanwhile, keep your eye on the prize. No, you won't have the immediate gratification of a lot of the foods you used to eat, but you will have your overall health and you'll feel proud for a job well done. It takes time to form new habits, but once you get there you won't want to go back to the old ones. Have you talked to your doc about your dizziness and shortness of breath?

I can share that I have a cousin who had WLS a few years back. She reached her goal a while back and I believe she's about half her previous weight. She makes getting her protein a priority and it's worked well for her.

Good luck! Hope to see you around the forums!

thank you for the support and yes i did spoke to my doctor about the dizziness and shortness of breath he said it was normal with the days i should be fine. my mom also did this surgery a year and 4 months ago and she said she also when trough all the changes im going trough, she said ill be better in a few days and that the emotional part comes along with this huge change that once i see my self going down on lbs ill feel so much better.
