Thanks to all of you who suggested I take measurements before surgery as a way to track my progress.

I have lost 16# in the month since I was sleeved and 25.75"--I am thrilled with the inches!!! I know no one actually knows your weight and I look like I've lost more but I'm hoping pounds lost picks up. MD says that the amount of exercise I've been doing (swim 3X walk 7X; 1-1.5 hrs/day) probably means that I've been building muscle. Which is good because I am getting enough protein (which is much harder than I imagined it would be.)

I'm so thankful that I have lost that gnawing hunger I had constantly. So far that's the absolute best part of this journey--oh, and of course the people on this forum!

    That's great! And a good idea I did not think about, taking measurements. Now I know what I will be doing before my surgery. Good luck on your continued success!!
