VSG surgery Progress and Resolutions

??0.8 I actually was down to a new middle number yesterday. So, even though its up today, I don't really care :D

This is gonna be a short post because I have a lot of phone calls to make.

Before surgery, I thought that I'd lose massive amounts of weight every single week. I see that's not true, but its really fine with me. Even though the scale is crawling along at the speed of a half dead escargot, I'm making progress!
I would have been aghast at the thought of losing 8lbs in 2 months and ready to throw in the towel, but by documenting my journey with pictures and keeping track of my weight, its really given me a good perspective. Having Sleevie Wonder in one corner and a great support team in the other, I didn't give up this time.
just 8 lbs

I want to lose weight. Nobody has this surgery to not lose weight. But I think I'm at the point where the scale has less of an effect on how I feel day to day. I still weigh every day and I will continue to do that because it works for me, but my resolution is to not let stalls or daily weight fluctuations get me down. I can tell you right now without a doubt that I WILL have bad days and I will be on here hammering out a "WAAAAAHHHH! Damn you Bessie part deux! COT DAMAGE!!!" on the keyboard. Its inevitable, but I am going to do my best. It may not be your best, but its all that I got



  1. Preach it, Cot damage! Some days I just need to read your stuff and Im myself all over again. Thanks for being super cool

  2. You look amazing! I do know what you mean, and I applaud you for your patience--I lost my first 100 pounds in about 4-5 months, and everything has been crawling since then (I had the bypass, though). I just do not give myself credit for the loss, and get frustrated that it isn't happening at the same speed anymore. Thanks for the reminder that slow is good. :-)

  3. Proud to be able to call you my friend!
    Keep it up lady! Your still doing the dogone thang!

  4. Man. I had that epiphany the other day. I looked at the "before and after" pictures on OH and was like "wow". I wanted that to be me...quickly. It just doesn't work that way. This is a gradual process. I'm glad someone else gets that. I'm done beating myself up, too. I feel you on this one. For real.


I love feedback more than cake. Make my day!
