One Month Out: Nsvs And Photos



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I can't believe one month has already passed. It has been quite a challenging month, but it has been well-worth every minute!

I had my VSG on July 30th 2012.

I have lost a grand total of 17.4 pounds on one month, and 24.2 pounds from my highest weight in August 2011...

Amazingly, I have lost a total of 17 1/2 inches! (I still can't quite believe this)...

I have removed more than half the clothing in my closet because it was just too big (again, that is a rare occurrence for me!)...

Most importantly, I have been OFF my diabetic medications (I was on Metformin 1000 mg twice a day) and my BP medications (I was on Atacand 16 mg once a day) since the surgery - I am so very thankful for this... :o)

Here are some photos (the images on the left of each photo are from one day pre-op, and the images on the right of each photos are from today): I hope I am posting these correctly...

food in the portions that I used to enjoy), but it has also been one of the MOST important, valuable, and healthy things I have ever done for myself so far - it has changed my life in a matter of weeks and I have been thankful ever since I did it that I made the decision to move forward...

Thanks to everyone here for having the courage to share their stories, their humor, and their encouragement!

      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.
