I am 2 months post surgery. I have lost 100 pounds, 65 post-op and 35 pre-op. I am just shy of 60, and thought I would be fat the rest of my life. My surgeon insists that I will lose another 170 to 220 pounds in the next 16 months. I have not been able to get my head around the reality of my surgery.
I am beginning to have faith in my surgeon. Everything he has told me so far has been true. He told me I would be tired after the surgery. He told me I would lose 30 to 50 pounds the first month. Now when he tells me I will lose an additional 170 to 220 pounds, I am starting to believe him.
I'm trying to change my mindset, and believe it is all real. I appreciate being able to share with all of you. Reality, come get me.
