My surgery date was 12/7/16 and I had the misconception that I would wake up like Beyoncé or at least 30 pounds lighter. Yet reality has set in in and I have only lost 7 pounds, yet I am no longer on my medication for diabetes. I find myself grateful to have had this opportunity to improve my health and self esteem. Can anyone tell me when they started seeing results after surgery?

I was disappointed weight wasn't "melting off" as the doc had said it would. I took pictures monthly since surgery- I noticed a difference by the 3rd month out. It takes time- stick with it.

I didn't really see results until I was 8 weeks out.  You will have lots of water retention and build up from your surgery still in your body. I looked bloated and people kept asking when I was going to look like I was losing.  I think your weight loss and freedom from diabetes meds is great!

Keep on climbing, Till I reach the higher ground
