30 pounds lost in 20 days - The BPD/DS Diet Fairy Cometh

Sep 21, 2021

*30* pounds lost in 20 days Woaaah! since pre-op fast started. (includes one-week post-op)

I AM SO HAPPY!

This is so over the top, that I won't expect you to believe it.

Here are some pictures from my new favorite toy: "the scale".

 Start of pre-op sub-1,000 calorie diet 

 7 days post-op from my BPD-DS. (includes 13 days pre-op diet)  

Here's what I've learned so far:

1) No hunger.  None. I was planning on starving myself to lose weight.  Not necessary.

2) Post Op pain was unbearable, but quickly subsided.  Off pain meds in 3 days.  Worth it.

3) Surgery was no problem.

4) Single biggest reservation/fear about getting the DS proven to be unfounded: "what if I am one of those 10-20 times a day people?"  That would not work for my busy life.  However, as it turns out, it went from 7 sudden BM's on day one (uh oh, did I make a horrible mistake choosing this surgery?) to 2 times a day, (with advance notice from your gut) - completely manageable. 

5) I actually *enjoy* eating my little (very filling) 4 oz portions of food, because now I really pay attention to it and savor the flavor and texture of it.  

I AM SO HAPPY!
