6 Month Post Op
Sep 27, 2009Hello everyone! I am happy to say that I went to my 6 month post op appointment last week. Dr. Chapman was very pleased with my progress. I started at around 228 lbs and last week I was down to 141 lbs! He said that over the next few months I will lose 1-15 more lbs. However, he would be satisfied if I did not lose one more pound.
I am grateful that I pursued this surgery at the weight that I was. Luckily, I do not need to have any skin removed. I feel better than I have in years. I have so much energy, and I actually look forward to excercising. I am trying to start running again, and even with the aches and pains it feels great!
I had some regrets right after the surgery, but now I have none! I went from a size 18/20 to a size 10. The hardest part for me has been getting used to my reflection in the mirror.
I hope that all of you are doing well! I will have to most some more recent pics when I get a chance. My avatar pic is from several months ago!
