I just wanted to stop in and let you all know that yesterday was my one week post-op visit. I got my staples out and they put steri strips on for a while. I was also weighed yesterday. Ok here goes. I lost 15lbs since my surgery which was on the 21st. Since my pre-op diet, which started on the 13th, I have lost a total of 29lbs!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah!! I am so excited. I know it doesn't seem like much when you start out at 448 but it has been ages since I have see the scale read 399. So for my next appointment, which is on September 5th, I have a goal of 399. I know that is only 20 pounds less than what I am now, and I also know that it very well might sore below this goal, but I am wanting to be realistic. Thank you ALL for your support. I am very blessed to have such a wonderful support group. I know I am not as active as most of you, but I do try and post when I can find time. But since I am out of work for the next month, I know I will find plenty of time.
