This week I am 4 and a half months out from gastric bypass and down 113 lbs! I am 20 lbs away from goal but more importantly, I've gone from a size 28/30 barely fitting to a 12/14 depending on jeans or shirts and slacks. The red outfit I have was in a photo from yesterday; the outfit has been in my closet through a move from one state to another and 5 years as a 'goal oufit' that I was always depressed to think to never even come close to wearing!

I was jumping up and down when this size 14 outfit easily slipped on yesterday. I honestly teared up seeing it finally come unfolded and the tags come off. Well, we are in NY, it's COLD and by the time winter subsides, I will be out of this outfit for summer and down at least another size so I'm wearing it in the house now lol. I still remain amazed at how much easier it is to move, breathe and even curl up in a ball or take a bath. I can work now in a very physical job and feel tired but not excruciating pain; it's absolutely unreal to me and delightful.

I'm guessing you lost a chunk of that while pre-op (I did as well - I lost 57 lbs on my six-month supervised diet and my two-week liquid diet). Either way, that's fantastic progress! Congrats!!

I did lose some pre-op (28 lbs-around there). I ran into complications in the hospital with the surgery and actually gained 13 lbs right off the bat. My stomach was amazingly purple and black and very, very swollen. I looked larger then the first day of program. After about 3 weeks or so, that weight gain of the loss pre-op came off in about a week. Then I started losing so fast those first 2 months. Two months ago, I started a job at a factory working ft with heavy lifting and running (my dept is on a line in receiving heavy boxes of merchandise). I stopped losing for about 2 weeks at that time and then it just came off unbelievably fast.

I do have to see my Dr as it is much faster then I think is normal and my skin is becoming very loose. It truthfully seems like every two or three weeks I am still going down a size. Besides weight loss, most important, my measurements are really a loss of about an inch a week. Right now, I have a problem with trying to eat because of my new job and the jobs of everyone in the house. I work overnight then am on schedule for picking the kids up from their jobs, etc. so I don't really feel much like eating. I do try to get in at least 600 calories and pretty much just drink my Protein Powder mix with Water while I'm working all night. My boss is extremely kind for giving me consideration with the surgery.

Thank you for the congratulations. Losing 53 lbs before the surgery is absolutely amazing and a lot of work on your part.

That's about the most accurate a statement I am feeling now over anything else in a nutshell. Sometimes it brings tears to my eyes to be healthy again and able to have a life. Thank you so much :-).

Thank you so much! I think so too honestly. Still trying to wrap my head around it. I am so happy but also starting to see a lot of sagging skin so there are mixed feelings now watching the weight go down so fast. My arms are past the 'old lady batwings' to a definite extra skin sag. I have had a couple moments of trying to adjust to the self-image.
