It has been a month since my surgery. I feel fantastic. I have so much more energy. I am doing so well with my meals I am surprising myself. Have had my first fill on 01-26-2013. Not bad at all. For once in my life I am in charge of my weight. My blood sugar is way down, no more Nexium and hoepfully I can get off my cholesteral meds soon. I always look at losing 5 pounds as a bag of sugar. When you pick it up in the grocery store its heavy. I have lost 4 bags of sugar so far. LOL
