Two months down...forever to go!
Feb 18, 2011Well, the first 8 weeks have been "interesting". Ups and downs and frustrations and triumphs. As of this morning I am OUT OF THE 200's!! YAY! I just stood there for a few minutes, waiting for the scale to start laughing and say, "just kidding - you really weight 205" but it didn't happen. 199 baby!
Although I'm grateful for the weight I have lost, I'm still a bit perplexed as to why the weight loss is slower post-op than it was when I was on my pre-op diet. I've only lost 22 lbs in the 2 months since surgery. With any other diet I'd be pleased with that, but it sure does seem to fall short when compared to the 24 lbs I lost in the 2 weeks pre-op as well as compared to what most other sleevers have been losing. I guess slow and steady will have to be the way it is with me. At least the scale is still going in the right direction - DOWN.
