  1. 5 Months Post-Op - Down 68 Pounds and New NSVs

    After 5 months post-op, this morning I weighed 167.4 pounds. I'm down from 235.6 (which I weighed 2-1/2 months prior to surgery). I've lost 68.2 pounds total (which includes losses from my own pre-op diet and the doc's pre-op diet) and 48.6 pounds since surgery on August 18, 2014.

    Weight loss this month slowed to 7 pounds from monthly losses that have averaged 10.5 pounds. Toward the end of Month Four my bariatric P.A. urged me to start raising my daily cals from 800 toward 1,000, ...
  2. Four Months Post-op and Down 61.4 Pounds Total

    Today is exactly 4 months post-op for me. Since many people want to hear about others' experiences, here are my results so far (all in pounds):

    At the first surgeon consultation I weighed 235.6
    After my own two-month diet I was down 11.6
    After my surgeon's two-week pre-op diet, down another 8.0
    1 month post-op, down another 10.4
    2 month post-op, down another 11.8
    3 months post-op, down another 8.8
    4 months post-op, down another 10.4 ...
  3. Two Months Post-Op -- Down 24 Lbs. Post-Op, Down 42 Lbs. Total

    And that headline pretty much says it all.

    Very, very happy with how it's going. Had a super good VSG surgery and an easy-peasy recovery.

    Four weeks post-op, I got a bonus surgery -- gallbladder was removed.

    Was hitting protein targets (60-80 grams) by Day Five. Haven't thrown up once. Am now able to drink water easily, almost like pre-op. Energy is coming back strong. Clothes sizes are down from 20 to 16. Looking much cuter.
