Hey DavidBC how's it going just checking on you hope all is well

Going great! It's been 2 weeks and I'm down 17 lbs. since surgery and 53 lbs. overall. I've had no issues to speak of except trying to get my fiber/miralax dosage ironed out and finding a Calcium pill I can take. I go to my first post-opt appt with Dr. Johnson tomorrow. Very glad I made this decision and looking forward to traveling a lot more in the years to come.

Hey DavidBC how are you doing tell me about your journey so far I have one more nutrition visit the 26 of this month tell me we have the best doctor?

I don't know if he's the best but Dr Johnson is a good one!

I'm doing great after 5 weeks! Been dropping 5 to 6 lbs per week and no real problems once I got the proper amount of Fiber down. Like many folks say I just wished I would have done this sooner!

I'm hardly ever on here anymore, but this post caught my eye today. I live in Athens, and was sleeved by Dr. Paul Macik at Northside. He was really good, and his office staff is great. I'm 3 years out this month. Because of the distance, I didn't go to the support groups at the hospital regularly, but I did join several WLS groups on FB, in addition to being here. Good luck to each of y'all!! :)

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
