It takes a while, as Gina said, about three months for it to heal. So important to measure at this time Elizabeth. I doubt if you, as I know I wasn't real good 'eye balling' any measurement. This is what got me to the weight I was. When after surgery I started to measure, it certainly was an eye opener as far as how much pre-op I was eating. Some things you will feel full on, chicken being one of them.. salads.. man, I can eat much more salad that protein. Over time, you'll know what you can eat more of. Salad goes to mush with our amount of chewing. Right now is the optimum time to lose, your body is in ketosis. Enjoy this. The farther out you go, the harder it can be. At times discouraging as the pounds start coming off by the weeks, not days anymore. But it's all good right? We are less than we were yesterday, last week, even last month. We have made a decision to live, to enjoy life. The scale is heading in the right direction. :) Weight loss is going well. I have 82 more to go :) Then about 15 pounds of skin to deal with, but it's all good.
I can do hard things, life is teaching me that I can.
