Nine days out. Those first few days were torture. So much pain I couldn’t imagine that it would end. But I was off meds after three days. Back in my office after five days. And it hasn’t been so bad. Some dumping symptoms - I ate a scoop of yogurt (low sugar) and it had me feeling light headed and dizzy for hours, for example. But I have been conscious about staying hydrated, trying to get down protein shakes - premier caramel and strawberry are good. Chike high protein coffee is a life changer!
Trying to take it slow but it is hard - I mean that’s what got me fat in the first place! Not just eating slowly but taking these first few weeks slowly. I feel good so I want to move on to puréed foods but my stomach isn’t ready. But it tells me quickly to watch out and I listen
the pounds are already coming off so fast. My face is thinner, stomach less bloated, my next official weigh in is on the 28th but my scale says I’m down 30 pounds - but that seems impossible
