1 month follow-up



Recommended Posts

I have my 1 month follow up today - but it's closer to 6 weeks due to holidays and my doc being busy at the end of the year. I get to meet with the surgeon and my nutritionist. Still dealing with insurance and the billing department at the hospital. It's gonna be a chore I think and I know I'm gonna wind up paying a bunch.

So far I'm down 48 since surgery on 10/22. 279 this morning. Hope to be 277 by the end of the week so I can call if 50 total. Somehow I lost 6 pounds between 11/27 and 12/1 and I have no idea what I did to make that work! But for now I'm back to the lose a pound - wait two days at the exact same weight - then lose another pound. It's MUCH slower than I thought it would be at this point, I'm still so close to my surgery! As long as I'm under 250 by April for my Hawaii trip I'll be happy.

Joined a local gym today as well - working with a friend who is a personal trainer to get a workout plan. Going to lift 3 days a week and continue barre 2 days a week. Might give up on walking for a bit, at least during the winter.

So they seemed pretty happy with my progress. Told me to stick to 700 cals a day, 70-80 grams Protein and under 40 grams carbs. We will re-evaluate all that at my 3 month appt on Jan 22. They didn't seem too concerned that I can do 4 oz in a sitting without really needing to slow down. Some people seem to be able to do that at 6 weeks and some never get there so 🤷‍♂️

They said weightlifting will help me lose more weight vs cardio so I'm going to stick with that.

I forgot to mention - BP was 122/88 and I haven't been on meds for that for 2 months now. Lost 2.5 inches in my neck, 5 inches around my belly and 4.5 inches at my waist!

      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.
