Hooray! It's been four months! This has been the longest four months of my life, accompanied by the quickest change. I am so happy I had WLS. Best decision ever.
Here's a little data breakdown:
Pre-op loss of one month: 19 pounds
Loss since surgery: 54.2 pounds
Total loss so far: 73.2 pounds
Left to lose: 66.8 pounds
Excess weight lost: 52.3%
Total body weight lost: 25.2%
Monthly losses: 19 / 15.6 / 10.8 / 13.2 / 14.6
Miles walked on Fitbit: 360 (bought Fitbit April 15)
Steps logged on Fitbit: 759,096 (what?!)
I have no idea how many clothes sizes I've lost, since most of my clothes from before were comfortably stretchy knit sort of things that are very "forgiving." They aren't fitting anymore, but I also haven't really gone shopping yet because I'm just hanging out at the beach where I don't know anyone but my husband, so I kind of don't care I have some shopping planned in a couple of weeks when I have to go back to civilization and dress like a regular person again.
Right now, I'm in a strange in-between place, much much thinner than before (see above!), but also still much heavier than I'd like. I don't look good to myself, but I do look much better. I feel like I should look better than I do for how much weight I've lost, but hey. I've still got a ways to go.
Very excited to keep on keeping on. My monthly losses have not slowed yet, and in fact this past month was a good one for totals. Fingers crossed that stays true for a few more months
