Bump. I am almost 8 months post-op and I am below my goal weight. It is been an arduous journey. Here is a side by side from my highest to my lowest weight. 286 vs 172

I don't even recognize the guy on the left.

When I saw the 286, I thought "well that's plenty okay" then I saw the 172 one, Buzz that's only 3 pounds from my dream weight! If I can look that good at that weight, this Cleveland Brown Chick will start cheering for the Giants, something I hadn't done earnest since Frank Gifford retired! You look so super
phenomenal, all I can say is "Wowsers!"

For me, and I am sure for others, this has been a huge life change both emotionally and physically. My body has changed rapidly however the mind & body go at different paces.

With that being said, life has changed. Social situations have changed, and the way I look at food has changed. Although 8 months as basically gone by, I am slowly getting used to the new me. This VSG journey is not a one size fits all experience for everyone.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
