Four weeks ago (the day I started my pre-op diet) I weighed in at 272 and as of today I'm 255. SO that is 17lbs in a months!!
My surgery was two weeks ago today. I still have a little pain in my stomach on my left side, it is not bad enough for pain meds. I can kind of sleep on my sides again. I think the pain is from my band. I'm not having any problems with food. I have had chicken and a small slice of thin crust pizza and no issues. I'm keeping up with the stool softeners, so no more issues with that either.
NSV- My fat pants are sooooo big that I can take them on and off without unbuttoning and unzipping them. They are way too big to wear out in public. They are a 22 blue circle from LB. The 20 blue circles fit in the waist but are too big in the butt and thighs. My 22 red triangles that I bought before I found out I was pregnant summer of 2010 fit again in all the right places. LB sizing is confusing and even the items that are the same size and cut DO NOT FIT THE SAME. So annoying!!
