My Biggest NSV's so far



Recommended Posts

I went to the doctors on thursday to see my PCP and my blood pressure was 123/81. Never in my adult life have I had a normal bp reading. I was so use to hearing 140 or higher over whatever that it took me a little time to realize that it was normal lol. He still has me on 2 medications but I'll take that since I started out taking 4 medications before surgery and I'm also on half the dose that I was on starting out.

My next NSV is I wore a 5 inch pair of heels to my co-workers wedding last week.

I now wake up at 4:30 on the days that I have to work to do a hour of yoga which I would have never done before surgery. Everyday I notice that I do more without even thinking about it, before I would never take the steps over the elevator but now I just do it.

I'm so in love with my sleeve :D

Congrats! I was on 5 bp meds before surgery,, gone1

Isn't funny how you start to feel the need for exercise? It becomes a new craving of sorts.

Every so often I find myself holding back in my head still seeing myself at 271 pounds and think for a brief moment I should do that, or I wont fit in that. Then I remember I no longer weigh that and go for it!

Thanks! I thought I was the only one who held back. I have to remind myself that I've over 100 pounds and I can do way more than I could do before surgery.

Yes and I've never been excited to go to the doctors before now. I would be afraid of what the scale would say and what my pressure would be. Now I can't wait until my next visit lol.

I'm sure your doctor will be just as happy to see you and even happier that you have loss weight.

Yes Candaceshenea I couldn't believe that they were 5 inches and I was able to wear them most of the night. I didn't even know that they were 5 inches until after I was home from the store.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
