3 months out!!!!
Feb 22, 2008
Well, I am 3 months out. I have been for about 4 days now. And drum roll please.......I have lost 85 pounds!!!!!!! Wow, I cannot believe I have lost that amount in 3 months time. I only have about 15 pounds left to make century club then I have to lose 40 more pounds to get to my goal. I might wanna strive for 10 more pounds after that but I will see what happens. My doc thinks my original goal would be perfect for me cause I am big boned and I will be very slim on top. I carry most of my weight on the bottom half,I don't like it at all. Well, I am so happy I went through this surgery and came this far in such little time,I aint giving up now!!!!!!!!

Dec 31, 2007
Well,its been 7 weeks since I started the whole fasting and six weeks since I had my surgery. I have lost 15pounds on the day of my gastric bypass and since the surgery 36 pounds, so in 7 weeks I am down 51 pounds. This is a good thing. I am sick right now though,I have the flu and an ear infection. I am also congested so yes I feel like shit and have no appetite,but Hopefully the medicine the doctor has gaven me works and I can get back in the swing of things and feel good again. I also,have been looking for a job its not easy but I have money problems and 3 kids so yeah I really need a job asap! Well happy new year everyone!
alittle over 2 weeks post op!
Dec 04, 2007
Well,I am doing great. I cannot believe how good I am doing. I am still on liquids(my choice) I could have started mushy foods 2 days ago but I decided to give the liquids one more week for a cpl of reasons, first reason maybe it can give my puch one more week to stay small(hey an extra week does count you know every pound counts!) second,so I can lose more weight,I don't know if even going on mushy will help me lose weight fast like this too,but I think the liquids you lose the most weight. and in one month ago I started the liquid diet 2 weeks before surgery today and I have lost in that time 35pounds!I have been walking alot,but will be going to the gym next week for even more aerobic activity. I can't use weights until I am 6 weeks out. But I might wait until I am 3 months to use any weights,so I can porperly heal and I will lose my water weight best cause I carry alot of water weight. I am also next week going to a vascular doctor. I finally found out what is wrong with my calves. they are so big and puffy like balloons. I have tons of water trapped in them and I have to get it out, so that is why my bmi don't match my weight. the bmi everyone sees on the screen now for me isn't my true bmi, The doctor believes my bmi is like 36 or somewhere around there. well, everyone take care and good luck with your journeys!
out of surgery
Nov 22, 2007
well, I did it, I am 3 days post op now. The surgery wasnt that bad, I am in veryt minimal pain and I am alittle hungry but thats caused I am on liquids but all in all its gonna be ok. I was poked 5 times trying to get my iv going but then after that I just remember waking up asking how did they do my surgery and they answered lap. I was so happy about that and my surgery took alittle under 2 hrs, it wasn't too hard the surgeon said. they let me go home 2 days later which was great, am not nauseous can walk atound pretty good and I am able to get the liquids down ok,but I will do ok with this and looking foward to losing my weight finally.
