I am 12 weeks, or 3 months, post op now! So hard to believe that 3 months has gone by since my RNY gastric bypass surgery!
I went from 304 Lbs to 230.2 Lbs, since starting Optifast on January 11th, in preparation for surgery. That's a total of 73.8 Lbs gone! Woohoo! I'm so happy about that.
I met with the dietician for an hour via telehealth today, for my 3 month post op visit, and it went really well. She said I am doing great, and that I've already lost 45% of my excess weight. She said most patients don't lose 45% of their excess weight until 6 months post op, so I'm ahead of the game!
I'm so pleased as I've really been working hard; following all of the rules for eating and drinking, and getting plenty of exercise.
I joined the local pool and started swimming laps, an hour each time, in addition to bike riding and walking.
I've gone from a size 4 or 5X to a size 1X top, and also a 1X bottom. Soon I'll be out of the X sizes and into regular sizes, and I cannot wait! I'll be able to save so much money because the X sizes cost so much more.
