Yesterday was one month since I’ve had surgery

In that month, so much has changed.

I have tracked my food every day.

I haven't had a binge.

I feel so much better.

I'm almost ready for the next size clothing on the bottom.

On the top I can easily fit into an XXL from the regular women's section of Old Navy and Gap.

I have lost 19.2lbs.

I still get nervous sometimes that I'll F it up and gain all of the weight back, but in general I'm feeling more and more excited about things and hopeful again that someday I could be at a healthy weight.

In June I have to go to a conference and it will be the first time flying in a long time that I won't be freaking out about fitting into the seat and having to use a belt extender.  The way I hold my weight, I generally haven't had to use an extender if I was under 290.  Just such a relief.

About nancykerins

I am a 38 year full time working mother of one doing my best to get healthy. I had lapband surgery in November of 2010 and then had a revision to the vertical gastric sleeve in February 2012. The purpose of this blog is a therapeutic tool for me to work out my feelings and write about what is going on during this experience. If I can help others through this blog, that is just a bonus.
