30 days post op
Dec 09, 2016
I just came from my 30 day post op medical visit and I am down 21 lbs and over 22 inches overall. I'm adjusting very well and am excited to be able to into the gym now.

It's early days for me and my WLS journey. I hear people call it that, a "journey". I'm not sure if that's the right phrase for me but I'll use it for now. Anyway, as I said, it's early days for me. I have only admitted to myself a couple weeks ago that this is a real option for me. I had looked into it lightly a few years ago but I wasn't ready then. I began serious research a couple weeks ago and admitted to myself that I do qualify so it should be considered. I'm 52 years old and if I'm going to do it, there's really no time to waste.
Last week I attended a seminar at my local hospital and this week I spoke to my hubby about it. There seems to be a ton of emotions going through me right now about this. I've been reading a lot of other people's stories and I can see how much work I have to do. I hope I'm up to the challenge. Working to lose weight is easy compared to the emotional/mental work that I will need to do.
Next week I meet the surgeon and see what kind of a timeline I will have. Anxiety is my constant companion right now.
