My 1 MONTH Post-Op Progress Report



Recommended Posts

Things have changed fairly rapidly over the last month since I had surgery on November 20th and wanted to share my progress. I know that I still have a VERY LONG way to go, but I have been shocked at how much things have changed in such a short period of time. I know some info might be TMI, but I just wanted to share with those that might be interested. So, here is my 1 Month Post-Op Progress Report.

Weight Lost: 36.2 pounds

Inches Lost: 27.5 inches

Pant Size: 58 down to 50 waist

Shirt Size: 4XL down to 2XL-3XL (depending on the shirt)

Short/Boxer Size: 4XL down to 2XL

Distance able to walk: Was at 50 yards and now up to 3.0 miles

Time able to walk: Was at 2 minutes (to mailbox and back) and now up to 60 minutes

Back Pain: Pain was excruciating and now almost non-existent

Knee Pain: Pain was excruciating and now it's mild

Windedness: Got winded getting up off the couch and now can walk 3 miles without being winded

Washing/Wiping: Had trouble fully washing myself and wiping, but now have no problems

WOW that is great results for the 1st month. 36 pounds is a huge loss and you have had a lot of NSV as well. Many of which I also hope to achieve with the sleeve whenever my surgery date is going to be.

Awesome results, man. Truly awesome.

Just think......you are just a month into this deal. Tremendous first month.

As far as the name change thing goes......may I suggest Dirk Diggler.

Mark Walberg's character name from Boogie Nights. You are gonna feel like a stud.

I can't get over your clothing size difference in just ONE month. I know that feels great.

What I can't get over is 1 month ago McFatster was only able to walk 50 yards and now he is walking 3 miles. That is 5,230 more yards than he use to walk. That is if I did my math right. For me who can't walk but 2 to 3 minutes walking that much more just blows my mind away.

McFatster I am the female version of what you were and I can only hope and pray I can become what you are now and will be in the future. I know your wife is thrilled for you. If you don't join her on the hike she spoke about in another thread- I will come to Ky and join her.

Thank you so much. I have a long way to go, but I am more pleased with the change in my mobility than the weight lost. For a while I was fearful for my life due to the immobility and exertion it took just to walk to the mailbox.

And I am definitely going for that hike. We have been dreaming about it for a long time and I even think Santa is bringing us some hiking shoes. ;)

Congratulations! This is so awesome. I know how great it feels to go from being basically immobile to being able to MOVE! It only gets better!

I am so happy I am able to walk again as well. I didn't realize how exhilarating it is and how much I took it for granted.

STEPPED ON THE scale YESTERDAY, AND ACCORDING TO IT I AM DOWN TO 264LB. HAD SURGERY ON DEC.30, 2015.. AND WENT BACK TO THE GYM THIS MORNING FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE MY SURGERY. SO KNOW I AM WONDERING HOW MUCH WEIGHT SHOULD YOU HAVE LOST AFTER ONE WEEK OF SURGERY? IM JUST SUPER EXCITED THAT I AM FINALLY GETTING THIS OTHER PERSON OFF MY BUTT. WHEN YOU HAVE COME FROM 398 AND STILL ASK YOURSELF HOW AND THE HELL DID U GET THAT BIG AND NOT EVEN LOOK IT, BUT U KNOW U WERE A BIG PERSON IS CRAZY... :D :D :D :D :D :D

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      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!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
