I had my surgery on July 22, 2019 starting weight 353lbs as of today December 11, 2019 I'm down 101lbs. I'm so incredibly amazed by this that sometimes I find it impossible to believe especially when I look at myself in the mirror. This surgery has completely changed my life, and better yet the relationship I have with food. There was a time when I ate just for the sake of eating, if I was bored I ate, if I were happy, sad whatever I ate. And let's not leave out the sugary sodas I was literally a sodaholic I drank 6 or 7 sodas daily. And wondered why I couldn't sleep up in down through out the night using the bathroom. Well all that has changed, I have had no sugar other than what is naturally found in fruits and vegetables. I made a commitment to this process. Now I eat to live food for me now is getting what I need out of it. My new love is weird because I love to cook and find ways of what I use to cook with a twist and making it healthy for my family to enjoy. And before I forget this was the easiest surgery I've ever had. I was out of surgery for roughly an hour and my nurse was in the room having me to get up and lap the nurses desk. I was up walking every hour on the hour with only slight discomfort I found the more I walked the less pain and gas. I was in the hospital 3 days and day 2 i refused pain meds as I no longer needed them. They sent me home with Tylenol 3 that I still have all15 pills left. If your getting ready to take this journey buckle up and get ready to be amazed!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      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.
