So I'm 9 days post op and I feel great. I've been walking and sipping as much as I can. The Protein doesn't go down as fast as Water but I'm getting there. Had my first visit with my surgeon today and I have lost a whopping 17 pounds. I'm so happy for myself I'm telling everyone I know like look at me! Lol! Although, I don't see where it's coming from, but I do feel it in my clothes.

On another note to those who are about to start this journey and looking to this site for any clue of what's next to come. Be patient, and always remember everyone is different. As I was looking into this site trying to gather information about what's it supposed to be like post op and I found myself thinking negative about what was next for me. A lot of the things I read were a little on the scary side. So far the only thing I can say is yes I'm hurting internally, but no matter how small the incisions are we have to remember it was a big operation on the inside. So right now I'm just doing my best to keep going and doing what am doing, because I'm going in the right direction according to my doctor of course. [emoji6] Everyone heals differently.

I'm so happy for you. I'm looking forward to be where you are at right now. I'm hoping to have my surgery in July. I have most of my appointments out of the way already. The last two will be next week.

      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".
