week 1 post-op is done and it wasn't easy but I'm glad it's behind me!
It was really hard getting the protein shakes down but it is getting easier everyday.
i am 12lbs down from surgery, wow I can't believe it! Everything we go through on this journey is well worth it when you see the numbers on the scale!
Good luck to everyone who is about to embark on this journey!
Happy new year everyone?
