One month down

on 4/3/14 2:23 am

So I'm officially one month post op and I have lost 38.4 lbs. I can def see it in my clothes but not so much in the mirror. Feeling pretty good and I have not had any issues with food thus far. Today I join a new gym and start the next phase! Woot woot

It will take time for you to be able to see it in the mirror. We are so used to being big that it takes our mind some time. It took me about a year and seeing myself in many pictures to realize that I was nowna thin person for the first time ever. You will get there too in time!

Nice work! I am not quite two weeks out so that 38lbs sounds pretty darn good. I feel better already. How about you?

Keep up the good work.

I have really felt its a lot and did not expect this so soon. I'm going to keep my head on straight and not freak when it might slow down

Congrats!  I lost 27 the first month, then only 11 in month 2.  It's funny how everyone loses at a different rate.  I feel like I look thinner in clothes but not in the mirror without.  However, I get "skinny" comments all the time so I know I must be doing something right!  :)
