I just want to brag a little bit....

Today marks 6 days post op and today has been my BEST day yet!!! I finally feel normal again! I put makeup on, left my house for awhile and felt great!! Decided to weigh myself for the first time and I’m down 14 pounds in 6 days! Wahoo!!! I’ll admit, I was in a slump for a couple of days post op feeling a bunch of negative emotions. Today I’m feeling great! Not to mention, it’s the first day post op that I haven’t had to take anything for pain or nausea!!!

Ps....I’m choosing to remain private about my journey with WLS...only telling close family and close friends and I’m so glad I have you guys to relate to!!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Congratulations! Yes Brag! You deserve it! 14 pounds, that's truly awesome!

Sounds about right. I was taking my dog short walks on my 6th day. Be careful, take it easy, and don't feel alarmed if you feel a bit of pain again on your 7th, 8th or 10th day..... Take extra strength Tylenol if the pain gets a bit too much. I stopped taking the prescribed pain pills 4 days after my surgery coz it was making me very loopy. I went back to work on day 12 but I mostly sit in front of the computer so it wasn't so bad. Refrain from standing up without using the arm chair to pull you up. Also I used the stomach support wrap with velcro that the hospital gave me when I go for my walks.

Like you, I decided I won't share my surgery to the world yet. Some of my family members and close friends know about it. I think I'll be ready to share the good news to everyone once I've lost my first 50 pounds. I had my surgery February 18th so a month and a day today and I've lost 33 pounds so far. Yahooo! I'm contemplating that most of my friends and family will be supportive, but there will be a few that will judge, and that's why I chose just not to share it with the world yet. I don't need the negative comments at this point. I need to focus and concentrate on me.

Good Luck! Excited for you.
