I am now nearly two months out from my surgery, and learning new things daily about my sleeve and its capacity as a powerful tool for weight loss. As each day passes, I’m finding there is still so much that I wish I’d been prepared for. Again, this is not to fault my doctor–he is still fabulous! There really is no possible way he could have prepared me for everything I have encountered since I’ve been home and out of his care.
But there are still some things I wish I’d been better prepared for.

Today’s food choices:
From upper left: mini ham, egg and cheese frittatas x2; 3 tablespoons of this bowl of chili; Pei Wei lettuce wrap filling; Boar’s Head Maple Glazed turkey; the guts of a club sandwich from Jason’s Deli (school provided lunch today–I ate most of the turkey, a slice of cheese and the bacon); multivitamin x2.
I had my six week follow up appointment today at my surgeon’s office. I knew I was going in today, so this morning I weighed myself to see if I’d had any scale movement since Sunday morning.

We left for the hospital Monday morning around 7 am, since I had to be there at 7:30 for check-in and pre-op vital signs and such. We arrived and went up to registration on the 2nd floor, where I checked in, paid my balance and began the longest waiting process of my young life.
