1 Month Later...
Jan 10, 2011
Yesterday, 1/9/11, marked 1 month since I had gastric bypass surgery. My highest weight was 236. My weight on the morning of surgery was 229. As of yesterday, I am weighing in at 210. I have lost of total of 19 pounds since surgery. It feels like it's going sooo slowly with the weight loss, but when I look back at the month as a whole, 19 pounds isn't too bad. Not going to complain about that.
I'm still having issues getting all my liquids in, but each day gets a little better. I was having a lot of problems finding a protein shake that I could tolerate, but I think I finally found one. It's a little on the expensive side for me, but it's worth it, because the protein thing has been my biggest battle this past month.
I am a long way from where I want to be... My first goal is to get under 200 pounds (hopefully that won't be much longer). My second goal is to get back to where I was when I met my husband...around 165. My ultimate goal would sit me right around 130... I am just trying to focus on the first goal, then move on from there.
I have noticed that my stomach doesn't look so "preggo" anymore...still a long way to go, but I can finally start to see a little progress being made. I really need to buy one of those measuring tapes that measure your body inches. I know there are going to be days, weeks, or more where I may not see the scale move, but I may see inches being lost.
Well, not much else to say right now. I am happy with my progress so far :).
