    Week 5 Post Op Report

    What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

    I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

    I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

    I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

    I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

    I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

    I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

    I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

    I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

    I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

    None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

    6 Weeks Post Op!

    My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

    I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

    I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

    I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

    I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

    This is my new world and I am happy it!

    It was an easy procedure for me and I am not having complications. If you want to see part one of my journey go here: https://sabrinagoddess.com/life-on-the-other-side-post-op-wls
    I will be making new posts during this whole process!

    Hey everyone.  Happy Sunday!  Today is day three after surgery.  I am blessed to have the support of my family as well as members of this group.  You guys rock.  I had my surgery at 3 pm Thursday and I was determined to be walking as soon as possible.  I began doing laps around 7.  My wife was there motivating me as well as other patients who became part of the posse.  My pain was not bad at all but I did have bad gas.  I was worried about meeting my fluid and protein goals but I am surpassing both as of yesterday.  My only regret is putting this surgery off as long as I did.  Thanks guys and will talk again soon.
