Three months already?
Mar 25, 2011
Boy how time flies! I can' t believe it's been 3 months since surgery, and while I'm a bit disappointed in my weight loss thus far, I have finally discovered what has been hindering my progress. It's the evil drug known as Prednisone. Unfortunately, I have to keep taking it or I could have severe health consequences.
When I had this surgery, my doctor said he "wasn't sure" how I'd do with my weight loss. He was confident I'd lose "some" but not A LOT. I set out to prove him wrong. I have never exceeded 800 calories a day and I have been hitting the gym on a regular basis. Have I gotten my protein in every day? No. But I do the best I can.
So far at 3 months I haven't had any substantial hair loss and I'm praying to God it stays that way. Overall I feel good. I know I'm a lot healthier. I don't crave food - although Diet Coke is another story...I yearn for it daily. Even though I'm clearly not going to be the VSG poster child, I am happy I had the surgery. It was worth it!
