So I am 2 weeks post op yesterday. My weight in missed the 40lbs spot by 1.2lbs so I was very happy with the results. Still having some strange pain in my stomach and my hematoma over my port site is still present but that does not bother me unless trying to lay on my side. I celebrated by going and buying zumba fitness for ps3 and tested it out this morning. OMG it totally kicked my butt. I had not ate yet today and was able to get about 15 mins of a 20 min work out done before I felt like I was going to faint so I decided I better eat and try again later. I may need to stick to walking for a little while and just learning the steps of the zumba it seemed to make my pain a little worse in my stomach hopefully I havn't done too much and messed up my band or something. But I am trying to be more active and hopefully meet my goal of 50lbs by the time my post op appointment on the 14th. Anyway just a little update for now... hope you guys are doing okay. I can't take the protein shakes so I am picking protein rich foods to eat like for breakfast I will eat a egg with low fat cheese, lunch a cheese wedge and chicken salad things like that to keep my protein level intact good. Still not drinking the amounts I need to be and having a hard time adjusting to getting in these vitamins but I am still a work in progress.. Time to go pass out after that work out!!!!

Good to hear things are swell so far! 40 lbs!!!! CONGRATS!

ZUMBA!?!?!?! WOW! You must be doing great!

I only started doing 20 mins on the elliptical at 2 weeks and wasnt allowed (nurse) to use the arm bars even at that point. Amped er up to 30mins today and used the arms. All good! My nurse said that the internal stiches are still healing for up to a month and suggests no HARD AT IT until 6 weeks.

But each to thier own inner voice huh!?

Keep it up and I am sure you will hit your goal!
