I'm actually already healed up, I was doing super about 6 weeks out. I had mine done on 5/28/14 so I'm 10 weeks out and so far I've lost 51 lbs since the day of surgery. I feel much better! I didn't think it was going to happen this fast, but no complaints ;)

How are you doing so far? Also I had my surgery done at park plaza, and I loved it there. Everyone was do nice

Hi Krystal,It's so exciting to hear about your amazing results! My surgery is scheduled for December in Tijuana with Dr. Lopez, who also does the single incision technique. I am waiting until December, as it's a better time for my business. I'm a self pay because my BMI is only 30, but I have struggled for years with an eating disorder. I'm hoping that after this procedure, I can finally have a healthy relationship with food. Have you experienced a normalizing of hunger and cravings with this procedure? I am looking forward to that, as much as the weight loss. I'm looking forward to being at one clothing size and staying there instead of being on this wild trajectory up and down that has gone on for years. Anything you can share in that regard would be so appreciated!

Hi glad to hear your surgery went well!!!

I'm actually still here. I had to stay in town for at least the post surgery visit. I'm actually from MI but wanted to go to someone who does Single incision since it's more complicated for docs to perform.

I'm staying by the Galleria at Hotel Derek

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
