I hit the 89/69 lb mark this morning and that makes it the halfway point. I’m three months and fours days post-op. I’m told that you lose the most you’re going to lose in the first six months. I’ll be working hard to get these last 89 off.

I know, I know. I have been lax at posting recently. In fact, I just let two months pass by without posting anything. I’ve been a bit busy.
So here’s how I’m doing –
The incision dried up and sealed itself right around the two month mark and I haven’t had a problem since.
I have lost a total of 85/65 lbs. I’m pretty happy about that.
I have been a slug for the past two weeks and haven’t exercised at Curves once. I have, however, done some walking a couple of times. My dad is having surgery today and I have to be with him tomorrow. I swear I’m going back to Curves on Monday. Y’all hold me to that, ok?
I have found that I don’t tolerate pork chops or bacon very well. I’m still not able to eat the 3 oz of protein, 3 oz of vegetables, and 3 oz of fruit in one meal. I’m totally ok with this.
I feel so much better and am now in clothes four sizes smaller. I have been so fortunate to have been given clothing in smaller sizes as I go down.
I have hit several plateaus where I have not lost a pound for a couple of weeks. At first this really freaked me out but I’ve learned that it’s just part of the process. I have even gone up a pound at times. That usually means I’m not getting enough exercise and my body is trying to store everything I give it.
I think I have adjusted well to life after WLS. I’m not craving starches or sweets very often and can pass them by when they are in my vicinity.
All in all, life is good.
