Picture Perfect in Georgia

by Donna
(Georgia)

I have always looked in the mirror and have never seen the real me. Not until I saw pictures of myself did I truly see how fat and ugly I am. What a shocker.

I always thought I was pretty and no matter how much I weighed, I would always be pretty. I was so wrong!

I decided to do whatever I could to be the picture perfect woman in a photo that I see in the mirror. Maybe not perfect in the mirror but certainly better!

I had the Realize band surgery almost two weeks ago and I am sooo hungry. I get my first fill in about 2 weeks and can't wait to see if I can get a hold of this hunger. I feel like I have done this for nothing because I am able to eat just like before. What makes this different than any other diet I have tried? Why am I always so hungry and why am I able to eat so much still?

Can anyone give me some great advice out there? Why do this surgery if the outcome is the same? My doctor told me to just cut back on my eating but if I could do that, I wouldn't be fat now! And I wouldn't have gone through the pain of surgery!

Just because you can NEW

Just because you can doesn't mean you should. I had that same problem after surgery, but realized that just because i could eat didn't mean I should. If you want to keep eating eat vegetables , don't eat the stuff that got you in this position in the first place. Drink a lot that will help as well. Patience goes a long way in less than 3 months I went from a size 18 to a size 12. Good Luck. The band is a tool you have to do the work.
