Well, one week down, a lifetime to go! I went to my surgeon's office today and they said everything looks good. Incisions are healing perfectly and I can swim in another week or two. My vitals are great. No more BP meds needed :-) I go back in a month and get my first fill if needed. I won't really know if I need it or not until I start eating real food. I have one more week on liquids and then I can start on mushies. I.Can't.Wait. I discovered today that I am only consuming 500 cal a day. No bueno. It will go up for sure when I start eating real food again.
Oh, I almost forgot about what everyone wants to know, my weight :-) Well, today I weighed in at 258 at their office but I was 257.3 when I weighed in this morning at home, so that is the number I am going by. That means in 2 weeks I have dropped 17.3 lbs...which makes me very happy. I know most of that is water weight and these types of numbers will NOT be the standard during my journey. Once I start eating real food again it will level out to 1-2 lbs each week, but that is alright by me because that will be actual fat leaving my body.
