Well it's officially two months today since my surgery. I am doing very well, feeling great. My back has completely stopped hurting, I can sleep in my bed again (I spent 2 months sleeping on my couch!) I am down 32 pounds from day of surgery, 45 pounds from highest weight earlier this summer. Some weeks it's only a 1.5 pound loss and I panic thinking that's it, I'm going to stop losing weight, other weeks it's 4 pounds. I just have to keep on believing and working it. I am focusing on protein and fat and it doesn't suck being able to eat creamy sauces, cheese, etc Eating out is an adjustment. Went to a Korean chicken place last night and got the small platter, was dismayed at how gigantic it was, couldn't make much of a dent in it, lots of leftovers! Walking 45 minutes a day and just started light weight training this past week. Looking forward to labwork next month to check in on my vitamin levels. Best moment was last week when I had to spend the entire day with one hand free hiking up my shorts before they fell down and had to go digging in my closet for my pile of one size down shorts (I have everything from size 8 to size 24 in my closet!) Also have gone from highest BMI of 44 in early summer to a 36 BMI. Almost out of morbid obesity range! I'm also closing in (3 pounds away!) on first number on scale being a "1". That will be momentous. Blessed that I discovered duodenal switch and had the courage to do it, largely in part to info and advice on this forum and on obesity help. I have a friend that was talking about getting a lap band or the balloon because she wants something reversible. I toyed so much with getting gastric bypass or gastric sleeve instead of DS, very happy with my choice. Happy Labor Day Weekend, y'all!
