I did it! The surgery went well except for severe nausea from all the meds. My system does not handle all those drugs very well. Once I stopped taking the pain meds, I started t feel better. I have lost 25 lbs so far and was quite surprised at how easily the weight was dropping right after the surgery. But once I started stage 3, the weight loss started to slow down a bit. This is just the beginning and I have a lot of work to do. I only go sick once from trying to eat too much shrimp. I still have to desire or bad habit of wanting to snack even if I'm not hungry. I this is going to be my biggest challenge to break away from that. But for the most part, I feel pretty good and looking forward to doing what ever it takes to meet my goal weight. I'm at 241 today so my first goal is to see 200 on the scale.
