2 month update
on 11/28/13 8:53 am - Canada
My surgery was September 23, 2013, I was on opti for 2 weeks before that. I have lost a total of 49.6 lbs from my highest weight. I am doing well, so far I do not have any intolerances to any foods that I have tried. I am still introducing other healthy foods when I can. I do struggle with my water intake mainly because I used to gulp and find it difficult sipping ( I get cramping in my pouch if I sip too much). I am forever greatful for this website and its support. Please take a look at my before and now photo in my album. I will try to update every 2 months. :) I am not sure how to add a link to this post!
