Question Is this possible?

I compared numbers on my scale with the doctor's scales when I went in for my post-op appointment, and the numbers match.

Today I am exactly one week post-op, and I have lost 19 pounds???????

Is this possible????

You'll see how much we all vary - I lost 40+ lbs. in the first month following surgery. Sit back and enjoy!

Yep, it's possible. I didn't loose that much in the first week. Only 12 pounds. But, the cool part is stepping on the scale every day and seeing it drop a pound or two a day. It will slow down, but it was cool anyway. Enjoy! It really feels good to see that scale dropping in the downward direction.
