10 month post op tomorrow !!

Recommended Posts

Hard to believe 10 months have come and gone since surgery and I am still plugging away.  I lost 5 lbs this month bringing my total to 109 lbs lost !!  Hoping to hit Onderland next month .. I try to keep my calories at 1000 or less and I am doing pretty well with that.  

I remember thinking last year at this time, where will I be in a year and here I am pretty happy with how things have gone. This is and was the best decision I have ever made for myself.  I am doing this a day early because I am going camping this weekend, something I didn't know that I would ever want to do again. I am pretty excited to say the least. I am finally getting my life back and I want to embrace it !!

10 months?  How did the time fly by so fast?  You are doing great and so close to Onederland!  You have come a long way since a year ago, and doesn't it feel GREAT!?!?!  Happy camping!  You'll have to fill us in when you get back and tell us all of the things you could do this time that you wouldn't have been comfortable doing had you gone last June!

So far so good!:DI started the liquid diet today. Only have to be on it for a week this time. I was hoping to have gastric bypass back in April but once the surgeon got in there I had too many adhesions which made it too risky to have gastric bypass. So here I am getting ready for the Sleeve. The other time I had to do the liquid diet for 2 weeks. I’m a bit hungry this evening but it’s not bad. I remember from before and after the 2nd day on the liquid diet the craving for food isn’t as bad. Im hoping for great results with the Sleeve:rolleyes:

You will love the sleeve !!!   Why did you do a 2 week liquid diet already?  Is this a revision for you?

I did the 2 week liquid diet prior to gastric bypass surgery which I didn’t get to have because of adhesions and scar tissue from previous abdominal surgeries. My surgeon said gastric bypass is just too risky with the amount of abdominal adhesions I have. So I’m scheduled for the sleeve on Monday:D
