hey there, kier...
i'm with blondee... what are you planning???
from the rny view.. in on tuesday morning, home on thursday afternoon. 4-6 weeks recovery, and some folks need a little more. things hurt REALLY BAD for a couple of days [like, tieing shoes isn't easy, and find someone else to clean the litter box!]. it goes away.
and the next 3 months are not always pretty. you eat something and throw it up. you're forcing yourself to eat, and drink. the weight is pouring off, but you're constipated and tired and throwing up. gee... are you now anorexic or pregnant????
some days, it's just tomato soup with american cheese melted into it.
but after those 3 months, life gets MUCH MUCH easier. and going into this, i decided that those 3 months would END, and having a lifetime of lower weight was worth this temporary pain and frustration.
you're doing the right thing by asking all these questions.... keep them coming!!!
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
