10 Days Post Op
March 15, 2010 8:00 am
I am days post op and I have lost 20 pounds (as of last Thursday at the first docs visit).

I can't believe I was able to do that and stay on the liquids the entire time without cheating. That is a HUGE goal for me and I am proud of myself. I have started the second phase the soft musy foods and had some trouble the first day. I wasn't feeling so great but fellt better the second day. I am still sore in some area of my belly and I just want to feel normal again. I have not started walking or exercising yet but that is my next goal to achieve this week.

My Story

I am a 35 year old woman who is a Mother of 2 children, wife and a compliance officer for an ATM company. I have been trying to get the gastric band for 3 years and finally had it done 9 days ago. I have been a member on this site since February 2006 but never filled everything out because I was so upset that I get getting denied for my surgery. During the 3 years I have went up and down in my weight  and finally hit 70lbs more since trying to get the surgery approved.

I haven't always been been heavy all my life it started in my 20s but it was totally manageable until I had my second child it went down hill. I developed health issues (throid disease) and my weight flucuated all the time and really hit an all time high. My goal is to get to where I was before I had children if not lower and get healthy...
