4 Months Post Op

by DCCT on 11-04-2015 at 09:16 PM
Have lost a total of 50 pounds!
Feel great, and can eat anything, just get satisfied way sooner.
I do tend to eat mostly the same things, like Greek yogurt, fruit, brussel sprouts, oatmeal, Premiere Protein drinks from Costco, and hard boiled eggs, and rarely crave anything, but what I eat still tastes good. Had In&Out the other day, and it was delicious, but could only eat about a third of the burger, and no room for fries or a shake!
I have no regrets, and look forward

Post Op Day 28

Have lost a total of 24 pounds!
Weight loss has slowed down to about half a pound per day, but the scale is still going in the right direction, DOWN!
I know I am not getting the prescribed amount of exercise, water, and protein, but I do my best, and every day is a new day.
Keep trying new foods, like: fish, turkey, sweet potatoes, and string cheese. Everything goes down and stays down, but am very limited in consumption. Never more than 3 to 4 normal size bites, or 7 to 8 baby

Post Op Day 21

Have lost a total of 21 pounds!
Feel almost normal, but still require daily nap.
I have tried some soft foods, like refried beans or scrambled egg with cheese, and all agree with me, but usually can't finish, because I am too full!
Still not taking vitamins regularly as they tend to upset my stomach.
Some people have commented on my weight loss, which feels encouraging, but have a long way to go.
So far, NO REGRETS!!!

Feeling better every day and since my wounds are scabbed over, I plan to go into the pool tomorrow and get more stretching and walking in with relief from the 100 degree weather!
The bloating and gas pains are completely gone, and I sleep very well.
I advanced to full liquids with some soft, like Malt o Meal.
Still not taking vitamins regularly as they tend to upset my stomach.
Have noticed a slight annoying cough at times and though

Well, I made it to the sleeved side!
Total weight loss since three day pre op diet is 12 pounds.
I'll take that.
Feeling better every day, and looking forward to being able to advance my diet from clears to full liquid.
Wounds look good and no fever or nausea since first 24 few hours after surgery.
Continue to have occasional gas pains, but they are tolerable and usually subside with either walking, massage, or heating pad.
So, glad this is over and ready
