4 weeks out

by dbowen on 12-06-2013 at 08:20 AM
Its been 4 weeks since surgery and... I LOVE MY SLEEVE! 30lbs down and 3inches on my waist, 1 inch on my arms, 2 inches on my butt. I haven't lost lbs in a week, but still lost an inch. Anyone on a stall, grab that tape measure!! Happy to be a loser

Emotional after surgery?

by dbowen on 11-22-2013 at 06:50 AM
I am not sure why I am sooo emotional since surgery. Everything is going well, lost 24 pounds as of yesterday. Stitches out, healing nicely. SO Why do I feel like crying one minute and angry the next? Is it just me? God please don't let this last too long. I had this surgery to feel better about myself and right now I feel like a hot mess.
