I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
39pts off my Total Cholesterol including...
- 29pts off LDL
- 33pts off Triglycerides
- 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range
- A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range
My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

Just deleted all of my food delivery/ordering apps and unsubscribed from several restaurant emails. I start my pre-op diet next week- unsure what that will look like until I meet with my dietician on Monday, but I want to be prepared for success. Let's go!
Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
I'm a week out from go-time! Today starts the all-liquids phase of my pre-op and about a month of being liquidy total. This afternoon is my last appointment with my surgeon before the main event. Looking forward to it!
I'm experiencing a situation at work today. This skirt fit comfortably snug during my pre-op diet period (last time I wore it). Today? Well...
I just began Week 5 today (sleeved 10/13). I have not lost anything on the scale since about 10 days out. That doesn't exactly bother me. I'll take a smaller body any day of the week! The rest can catch up when it's time.
First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.
