I promised myself when I started by gastric bypass journey that I would share the journey on the blog but not every single day. I don’t want to turn this into a weight loss blog. I still want to play Mad Libs, be silly, and ramble about things that amaze or stupify me. That said, I have decided to update on the journey whenever I have lost twenty pounds.
Today would be that day!
I weighed in this morning at 273.5 pounds, down twenty exactly from the beginning of my pre-op diet (which I started October 30th). I’m gobsmacked. Twenty pounds in 2 1/2 weeks.
I am healing well, feeling less emotional and anxious, and find myself having more energy. I have graduated to yogurt, cottage cheese, slices of lunchmeat, grilled chicken, grilled fish, ground beef with gravy, eggs, and dried beans/peas. I wish I could eat some veggies or fruit, but that leap is still 3 weeks away.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement! I love y’all 🙂
PS— I’ll try and post pictures this weekend.
