Well I've had my sleeve gastrectomy surgery on...

Well I've had my sleeve gastrectomy surgery on April 1 st and today is 3 days post op!!! My biggest fear is that I won't be able to get all my fluids in plus 60 grams of protein... I'm just not hungry yet I am still continuing to sip on these liquids... Warmer liquids do seem to feel better that cool liquids. Of course there is pain and discomfort.. I am feeling a bit tired and week and to top it off Mother Nature decided to show up.. Smh.. Ill continue to keep an update.. My stats before 2 week diet I was at 297, surgery day 286, and now 3 days post op I'm at 281!!!

Going On 7 weeks!!!

Sorry For Not Updating But I've Been Very Very Busy With Work!!! I Just Wanted To Report That I Am Officially 51lbs Down!!! From 297 To 246!!! Yay!!!

Thanks for the updates and congrats on the weight loss already! It will take you a few days to get back to normal and to start feeling better, but give yourself time to heal and rest up!
