Anybody else started at over 500 lbs?! Currently 9 weeks post op VSG and down 85 lbs! When did you notice your body changing?

I've been over 500 lbs in the past, but was around 480ish when I began my pre-op diet. As far as changing, I noticed my clothing sizes changing pretty quickly. I've gone from a size 62 pant pre-surgery to a size 52 within 5 months. I have a nice rain jacket that I bought when I was near my biggest. It was a 5xlt and pre-surgery, it was very tight in the shoulders. I wore it the other day and I felt like a teenager borrowing his dad's jacket, it just hung off me.

I don't notice the changes in the mirror as much, but that is due more to body dysmorphia (VERY common in bariatric patients) than it is a lack of change.

I had a bit more than 500 pounds to lose.

I noticed all sorts of things changing pretty quickly whether they were real or imagined. I certainly did notice when things most people took for granted started becoming easier for me. I continually discovered myself doing things I hadn't been able to do for years.

Good luck,

Tek

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.
