It's been almost 11 weeks (this Tuesday) since my surgery. I am down 40.8 lbs. I have never been able to lose this much weight on my own before. I feel great! No more feet swelling and I have more energy. I can no longer wear my pre-surgery clothes at all and most of the clothes I've bought for after surgery are getting way too big:) Someone needs to do more shopping soon :) My next mini goal is to get to 169 which is the weight I was after I had my second child. I've lost 2 baby weights so far. My BMI was a 40 and now it's a 31. That's pretty amazing :)
The only thing about it so far that has been a negative is the loose skin :( I know it will tighten some but it's there. I'm just hoping that once I lose this weight that I'll qualify for skin removal surgery.
