  1. I had my surgery on July 27 of this year. A week before I bought a pair of Levi’s 501 jeans 42”x32”. I’m determined to try them on Thanksgiving Day. This was the same size I wore in high school. Once they fit I’ll know I’m about 75% done.
  2. I had my gastric sleeve surgery exactly 2 months ago today. As of this morning I'm down 60 lbs. It took less than a week after surgery for me to get back to exercising. Prior to surgery I would walk 7-8 miles 3-4 times a week. I would also spend 30-45 minutes on the elliptical a couple times a week. This made the post-surgery transition much, much easier since I had been exercising from the very beginning.

    Weighing Food

    10 days removed from surgery I weigh my food. I have to because I have no idea what a proper portion is. If I did I wouldn't be on this forum.

    2nd Day Post-Op

    I had Gastric Sleeve on 7/27 and experienced the same gas pain. As seen in other parts of this thread, I affirm that the only way to fix it is through walking. No shortcuts to feeling better.
