9 week update

Sign in to follow this  


I am 9 weeks post -op and I am really starting to get excited. I am allowed more food than I am eating right now-- but the scale keeps moving down so I am going to stick with what I am doing. At Christmas I weighed 284. Just before my surgery (January 14, 2013) I weighed 264. I wish I had measurements but I never took them. Today I weigh 210. So since surgery I have lost 54 pounds. FEELS AWESOME. Can't wait to see how it feels to lose the next 54. :)


I have not shopped yet for any new clothes and I think it is time. Everything is really baggy. I was trying to wait for the god forsaken weather to get warmer. I do not really want to buy winter clothes because by next winter I will be even smaller. And for the first time in my adult life- it will be soo fun to buy spring and summer clothes -- I hope.

I too hope I have those results...can't wait. My Doctor wants me to get the bypass but I really am wanting the sleeve. He said my reflux would go away with the bypass and it could get worse with the sleeve. We make the final decision Monday. I really don't know what to do. Should I go with what he recommends, or what I really feel comfortable with?
