7 weeks POST OP
Dec 27, 2010Hey everybody!!
My pre-op weight was 350 and I'm 5'9 (highest known weight probably 365, but PCP scale did not go that high) I am 7 weeks out today and I am down 48lbs. The beginning of my post-op journey was tougher than expected with pain and discomfort but apparently I am just a baby. LOL I have had no other compliications - no nausea, no dizziness, haven't vommitted once (knock on wood), BMs are normal, no serious appetite, etc.
I joined a gym and got a trainer, who refuses to work me out until 8 weeks and has set me up in "Beginner's Aerobics" much to my surprise, when I go for the first time I find out it is actually SENIOR CITIZEN AEROBICS...LOL (no offense to the seniors) Being only 26, I was very caught off guard. But it is actually perfect for me at this point. On my off days from that I have been trying to do Wii fit to get my heart rate up a bit.
I have gotten myself into a routine which I think is really helpful - I'm back to work which has been a breeze. No one really has been bothering me with questions. I have been eating 3 "meals" a day, 1 snack, and 1 protein drink. I have no problems getting my fluid and protein in. I feel so fortunate because I know this is not the case for everyone.
Good luck to all my OH peeps out there wherever you are in YOUR journey. I know I am SO happy I did this and can't wait to look back 6 months, 1 year, etc from now and say WOW!
