I haven't complained in awhile because I have no reason to!! I'm 5 weeks out and down 17.5 lbs since surgery and 55.5 lbs total!! I'm no longer in race mode but nice and easy marathon mode. I don't weigh myself everyday, maybe every other or so. I feel great and I'm down from a tight 22 to an 18. That feels good. I feel "normal" right now because most of my adult life I've weighed around 220. When I get below 200 lbs, that will be my WOW moment. I haven't weighed under 200 since high school.
Here I am again 25 days post op and I'm not losing any weight. I've been bouncing between 226 and 228 for more than a week now. I've been working on my house all week painting and complete exhausti on has set in. I took today off! The bottoms of my feet hurt so bad! So I continue to be frustrated. when is this "new life" going to begin. I go see my surgeon on 8/10 and I go back to work this Thurs. Just seems weird that I'm only down 7 lbs since surgery. That's my average when I lost weight before surgery so I'm not excited about it. I've meausured too and I've lost an inch around my belly. Not sure if I'm doing anything wrong. I'm on pureed foods and eating 3 times a day plus my protein shakes, popcicles and water. I eat things like instant mashed potatoes (which I just had) pureed vegetable soup, creamy soups, pureed chili, pureed refried black beans with cheese and plain greek yogurt oh and my favorite breakfast is grits with an egg, cheese and bacon bits. Yummy!!! There's my story and I'm sticking to it. Until next time!
