48 Year Old Finally Getting Back to Healthy Happy Weight

Just had surgery on May 31, 2016. Will update...

Just had surgery on May 31, 2016. Will update very soon. I just got to 5 weeks post-op today and I'm down 22 lbs. I started at 222 and, as of 2 days ago, I weigh 200 lbs. I am 5'6" tall. I had this surgery after a friend of mine had it 6 months earlier (I didn't know she had the surgery until she was 6 months post-op since I don't see her regularly).

6 weeks postop - down 24 lbs

Surgery weight: 222 (no preop diet)
Current weight: 198

Today is 6 weeks postop and weight loss has been really really slow over last week or so. Part of problem was I wasn't getting enough protein because I had stopped drinking protein shakes but i started back up a few days ago. Finally most of my size 16 are getting too big! I never did get larger size than that but they were getting pretty tight. So glad to be under 200 lbs and most of all thrilled to know I'm never going back there again!
