  1. Just wanted to post an update. Today I am one week post op sleeve gastrectomy. Went to have staples removed. Weighed in at 238.3. My weight one week ago was 252.8. I don’t own a scale at home, so I was kinda shocked to see this number on the scale. I cannot remember the last time I was at this weight. I’ve really been emotional for the last week.
  2. Wow! I did not know this could happen. Thank you for sharing!
  3. My reason to go forward with weight loss surgery is two-fold:

    1.  To help me reach my goal weight of 150 pounds which was not working by dieting.

    2.  I’m just tired of being the fat friend.  The one who makes everyone else feel good about themselves because I am fatter than they are.  
     

     

  4. My surgery was the Sleeve Gastrectomy on 11/11/19. I just got home from being discharged and immediately starting searching Google for groups I could join for support going forward. On Friday I weighed 252.8 and today I weighed 250.3. It’s a start and my goal is to lose 100 pounds. I’m trying to navigate what I’m able to eat and drink. Right now I’m only doing the week 1 liquid diet - G2, broths and Jell-O. Having to sip slowly due to not wanting to overfill the sleeve. Anyway, I hope to be able to find help here if I have questions. Look forward to taking this journey with you! We all need support! I’m here if anyone needs to talk and have some one listen.
