Surgeon Testimonial

Charles Thomas
I love the program in place for bariatric durgery with Dr Thomas, Southern Surgical. From start to finish Judith walks you through the process in a very thorough manner. They don't skip a beat here. They know what they're doing! They received insurance approval without a problem, because they were very prepared. I appreciate all of the \"loops\" you have to jump through. I know that all of it is for my safety and to be sure I will be successful. I am confident that I am in good hands here!

I was really scared to go through this weigh in because I have been retaining sooo much water, but of course I went all the same.  I am down 6 more pounds!  That brings me to 50.2 from the start of my weight loss journey, and 24 lbs from surgery!!!!  

I am SOOOOOO HAPPY!!!   I'm doin' the happy dance       ......

4 weeks out!
May 6, 2008 1:18 am
Ok, here I am - I'll be 4 weeks out tomorrow.  My 4 week appointment is today.  I cannot wait to weigh in.  I want to see that magic number.  I can see a difference.  I feel really good.  I however am not getting my hopes up too high, beause I am PMS-ing pretty bad right now and am retaining water.  
I just know that scale has still moved down none the less!

I cannot wait to update my info later today!  I love being a LOSER!!!

My Story

Ok guys.  I am now 1 week and 1 day post op.  
Yesterday's 1 wk appointment was great.  Doc was proud.  I was happy to have lost 13 lbs.  My drain tube was taken out, and some of my staples (every other one) were taken out.

So, today the weather was wonderful!  I went to the local walking track to walk a few laps.  This is the first time I have actually done this since surgery.  I walked a mile, then drove home.  About half an hour after getting home, I decided to take a little nap.  I slept from 10:30 until 3pm!  The whole day went by!  I guess I over exerted myself.  I should have stopped at 1/2 or 3/4 of a mile!  I  will go back tomorrow and I will see if 1/2 mile in the morning and 1/2 mile in the afternoon will work!  

Other than that I am doing good!  All liquids are fine, Jell-o hurts going down, so I don't eat it very much.  Chocolate protein drinks also hurt going down, so I have been trying to stick to chicken broth flavored unjury.  

I love my tool pouch!  And I cannot wait to eat refried beans!!
