1 Week Post Op



Today is exactly 1 week post op- I was sleeved last Friday 8/17 weighing in at 216 lbs and hating myself. This morning I stepped on the scale and weighed in at 204.8 lbs for a loss of -11.2 lbs. While I'm relieved the numbers are going down instead of up (especially from gas and bloating post op) I'm also very humbled. Last night I went to an event with my water polo team and I realized that this surgery has literally changed my attitude and stopped my self loathing dead in its tracks. Everyone said I looked so happy and glowing- especially after just having surgery (I told them all it was for stomach ulcers ;) ) and I was all smiles. I laughed so hard, I actually almost hurt my incesions. Best night I've had amongst friends in a while- and everyone noticed. Along with losing weight, I'm also losing a lot of personal emotional baggage that was tagged onto this weight. I finally see a light at the end of the tunnel, and it gets brighter one pound at a time...

Wonderful. I can't wait for the day I can go out and not worry if people are staring at my big BUM or if they are saying in their heads " she's so pretty if only she'd lose a few pounds"... if I had a dollar for everytime I heard that i'd be rich !!!

Congrats on your first 10 Post Op pounds... I'm due on Monday to go in. hope mine is as uneventful as many of the one's i've heard of so far.

Take care and have a great day.
