I was so anxious for this day, just to see what little progress I've made. I've lost 17 pounds since surgery date which was exactly one week ago today. Glad to hear I can eat puree foods next week. My liquid diet is going just fine and I'm getting at least half hour of walking in daily. My sleep is slowly getting better to, im not waking up all the time at night. So does this good feeling keep coming at every check up?

That's how it was for me, feeling steadily better over time. Better sleep, more energy!

Sure does for at least a year. Then reality sets in and you got to work for it. But looks like your on the right path. Look at you walking a half hour already. You got this.

Awesome! Congrats on your journey! 17 pounds is amazing! Everything has it's ups and downs. You will have to work on finding happiness in different aspects of this journey. but the goal is to KEEP those good feelings written down for when plateau**** or you find yourself in any sort of doubt. There are ebbs and flows and overall, at least for me, I've enjoyed the ride!

I'm not quite at the 11 month mark and this has been the most exciting time of my life. Each month I make so much progress, it's a constant high seeing that number on the scale go down, and having to buy smaller clothes over and over again. The first year is so much fun.
