I am two weeks post surgery yesterday and I’ve lost 22lbs so we are pretty even. If you think about it that’s a huge amount of weight considering we are both still swollen from the operation. I don’t know about you but my wounds on the outside are still healing so heaven only knows how I’m doing on the inside. I’m looking at it that pre op diet I was following was nothing but shakes three times a day which I couldn’t have sustained long term. I tried many many times before and I failed. I’m trying to think that I had the euphoric initial weight loss stage during the pre op phase and now the weight that I am losing I will hopefully be able to continue to lose at a steady pace and be able to keep off. Please don’t feel down. You can’t do more than your doing. If your anything like me right now. I’m an emotional wreck. I go from thinking “what On earth have I done” to “wow this isn’t too bad” and then back to “give me back my stomach” and those feelings can be within an hour.
