4 weeks post op
Jan 01, 2009Had the first doc. appointment yesterday, and for once and my life the doc was thrilled with my progress. I am now at 30 lbs. lost , 43 since starting the Optifast, and my BMI has gone from 50.1 to 42.3. That still sounds like quite a big hurdle to tackle, but can only take it one day at a time. I am on pureed food for another week and am suppossed to eat 6 times a day. The amount is 2-3 oz. at a time. Well, I did 6 only one day. I can manage 2 oz. 5 times a day, but not 6, thats for sure. If I was to try to get in all the fluids, protein and food they wanted me to tackle in a day, there would be no time for sleep. So I decided protein and fluid were the most important, and of course the vitamins. My incisions have all healed nicely, and I am still managing to walk to 2 miles a day. Right now, I consider myself very lucky, compared to some, this has been a complication free for me. Thank you, God.
