What did Gastric bypass do for me?
- Rid my body of sugar once and for all
- Severed the grip from unhealthy carbohydrates and processed foods
- Requires that I chew each and every bit thoroughly
- Requires that I eat much, much slower
- Cut my food intake to four small meals a day
- Made protein a number one food source
I have to say, all in all, I feel as though having this surgery took me back to exactly what I was doing for most of 2013 when I lost nearly a hundred pounds. Those first ten months of 2013 were that happiest months of my life. Why? Because I was eating and drinking and moving my body to support a balanced lifestyle.
It wasn’t until I thought it would be ok to have a glass of wine and an occasional sweet sugary treat that I lost my momentum. I have learned greatly from this. I will no longer drink and allow white sugar or processed foods to pass my lips. It’s not worth it. I find having lots of energy and a focused mind much more attractive than a stinking glass of wine or some silly “treat” that will only wreak havoc on my mind and body.
I am so glad I had the surgery and look forward to living a balanced, centered life.
All is well in this girl’s world.
I hope everyone reading this is equally as happy and blessed in everything and every day of their lives.
