- HEALTH TRACKER
I know, I know... I've read tons of posts where vets get onto newbies for weighing too soon after surgery, but I have been doing it since day 4 post op. What I found when I woke up this morning amazed me, because up until yesterday, I thought my losses were a bit on the slow side for the first phase of post op...
Anyways, on my surgery date, last Thursday, I was 241. Today, I am 230 and some change.
Only 11 more pounds to get out of the morbidly obese range!
Only 31 more pounds to Onederland!
Don't get me wrong... I know that I'm still too close in to have any real idea of how my losses will progress overall, but this has made all the emotional climbs and drops, the hunger, and the frustrations feel so much more worth it! I can't wait to see how I feel in a few months! :)
Thanks so much to everyone who has held my hand through this process. I feel like I say those words all the time, but it's never enough. I don't know where I'd be today without you! :)
And to others who are struggling right now, in the first few days post op... it really will get better. Promise.
Yep... everyone has to figure out what works for them and stick with it :)
Honestly, when I go back to work at some point next week, I probably will not weigh every day... won't have time in the morning, and I don't believe in weighing at night lol. But at this stage of the game, seeing results is really helping me to not mind the liquid phase as much, so I'll do it.
You are another one of the vets that has always guided me very well. Thanks so much for always beingn willing to allow me to benefit from your insight and knowledge. Your advice has always served me well. Love you!
