    by , Today at 11:22 AM
    I made it!! The longest three weeks of my life but I am officially 3 weeks post op!! I remember having vacations with my family at Disneyland and other fun resorts. It felt like that time flew by so fast!! I would have done anything to make it last longer and move slower.

    Why can't this time after the sleeve speed up.?? Haha I know when you are having fun time flies and of course the first weeks after the sleeve are far from fun so time is dragging. I know when I can actually eat ...

    How fast did you go back to work after surgery?-2-months.jpg

    I promised myself in the beginning of my journey that I would make sure I documented my progress to keep me motivated, and BOY did my "progress pictures" make my day!

    I had my appointment with the dietician today it's so great to be moving forward I have an appointment with the surgeon on Thursday next week and then just waiting till the 18th.
