    Hi, Ann2. How are you?
  3. Congratulations on your one year. Sorry I missed actual day and your pic. You always have such good stuff to say and I always look forward to reading what you post.

    As always, thanks for your encouraging posts. I just wanted to let you know again how sorry I am for your recent losses. I hope you and your husband can find some peace going into the holiday season. Birthdays and holidays and other "special times" always stir up such strong emotions. Thinking of you and best wishes.....

    Hi ya , it's early days without my gall bladder but it's better without it . I've got some side effects I need to speak to the doctor about since having the surgery . Everyone keeps telling how much younger I look and I was so worried loosing the weight would make me look older . I have got to speak to my consultant about my weight because I'm now officially under weight which is crazy !!! How are you? Have you still got your gall bladder? Xx

    Hi Ann, how are you? Just had my gall bladder out so thought I would pop on here and have a catch up . Hope your well. Xx

    You're such a peach, Ann. So positive, happy, and enthusiastic! You're a new you - pretty cool, huh? Never too old to learn, grow, try new things - you're a stellar example of that.

    I still geek out over the bones. My shoulders, ribs, back, wrists, hips - hell, I'm even feeling my seat bones now (and I've got a plump truck if you know what I mean). In a size 8, 29% body fat, and my bloodwork is sheer perfection...like panty hose. What's also cool is that I'm a steady 1lb/week these days. I like that!

    That's really good to hear. I am getting there I had my 2 week post-op check-up yesterday. Happy with the progress, except one drain has to stay.
    I will have another appointment in a week, hopefully that will be when I get it taken out. What's new with you?

    Yeah - I was pretty hefty. Down to 164 now...goal is getting closer and closer!

About Ann2

Basic Information

About Ann2
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I'm 68 (now 69) and have struggled with overweight since I was 6 years old. I've been heavy, normal, heavier, slim, even heavier, normal, heavier .... You all get it.

I'm married to a wonderful man who supports my VSG journey. My goal is to become as healthy as I can as I head into retirement. I've done so many other things well in my life and refuse to let this problem defeat me.

I invite all the support anyone would like to give and offer mine to others on their VSG journey.
Travel, reading, writing, spending time with my husband

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

by Ann2 on 01-18-2015 at 08:55 AM
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,

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

Two Months Post-Op -- Down 24 Lbs. Post-Op, Down 42 Lbs. Total

by Ann2 on 10-18-2014 at 07:23 AM
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.
