Starting weight before surgery: 322.0 lb. Prior to surgery I lost 22lbs.

Weight on day of surgery: 300.0 lb

Starting weight after surgery: 312.0 (often times you will gain weight while in the hospital due to i.v. fluids and gas pumped into the abdomen.)

I am still here and doing well!

Hi all! I know I have been MIA but I have been so busy living life and getting back to Grad school after taking the Winter semester off to have the VSG. I am happy to report that I have lost 92.8 pounds as of this morning...almost to 100lbs lost! I am truly amazed at how my body has changed. I went through weight loss hell during the month of May as I was stalled for an entire month!! I literally wanted to blow up my scale and I promise you I am not a violent person, LOL! There were even a few days during the stall that I was near tears thinking my weight loss was over...now I realize how ridiculous my thoughts were, but it really wasn't helping that I was weighing myself everyday.

I am eating normally and averaging anywhere between 800 and 900 calories per day, which consists of about 75-80grams of protein and between 40-60 carbs. I struggle with water/fluid intake but I always try to get in at least 64 ounces per day. I am able to eat out if I like, but I am very picky with what I choose from the menu. Seafood is my go to choice when eating out. Salmon is now one of my favorite sources of protein. Very rarely do I wish I could eat more at one sitting, but I honestly think that the feeling comes from my old way of thinking as I am not hungry when the feeling emerges so I am happy to have my sleeve back me up during those rare moments.

Overall, I am doing well and feel blessed that I was able to have this surgery! Til next time...
