Surgeon TestimonialJorge Acosta, MDMy surgery was done by Dr. Eldo Frezza. He turned out to be pretty bad. My insurance company assigned me to Dr. Acosta for follow-ups, and he is absolutely adorable. Much better care than my original surgeon, and nice looking to boot! ha ha. I feel lucky to have him!

I got down to 176 this last week! I have pretty much stayed there, but happy to see another number on the scale every morning! I guess I am a stair step loser, I tend to stay around the same weight for a week or longer, then will notice a couple of pound drop. I can live with that, as long as I don't start CLIMBING the stairs! ha ha ha!!
I didn't get in very much exercise, in fact, I think I only went on one lunchtime walk, but I have stayed active, and busy. We planted a garden this weekend and have been moving the last of Enrique's stuff out of his house and in to mine! Until we get a storage unit, some of his stuff is staying in his garage...so we aren't through moving boxes quite yet!
I am still taking 2 prescription strength prilosecs a day. My acid and the bubbling in my stomach is nicely controlled. My hunger is still there a bit. I guess, that is something I will just have to live with. My plan to deal with that is to try and make sure I have access to good, healthy, protein-rich snacks to get me through until my next meal. Easier said that done, I know.
I have slipped up a few times this past week and had some bad carbs, I didn't let that stop me, and I didn't allow myself to have a totally carb-filled day. The all-or-nothing attitude I have had in the past: "Well, I blew that one! Might as well pig out on chocolate and pizza tonight!!".
So far, I really love my sleeve and I am very thankful that I had a chance to get this surgery! Have a great week!!
