So how much have I lost?
Okay, now that number does include the 11lbs that I lost on the pre-surgery diet I was on. To be clear then, I have lost 30.5lbs since October 1st and 19.5lbs since I had the surgery four weeks ago. I went ten days during that four week period where I didn't lose a single pound either. My body was in a state of shock and there was no way in hell it was letting go of its hibernation layer. But then for the last week it has been coming off rather quickly.
When I started my pre-surgery diet I was 319lbs and today I was 288.5.
I feel fantastic now. My energy has me going steady until about 7pm and then I crash. I am sleeping for at least seven hours a night. Each day is still pretty much the same regarding food- five to six meals a day of half a cup servings. The meals are high protein and still soft so my stomach can deal with them easily.
Since I am now four weeks post-op, I am now cleared for all activity! I have to start with some weight training and increasing my walking each day. Another week or so and I will add some more foods into my eating plan. Slow steps, but I am making it!
