14 Weeks Post-Op

A week ago today I had my 3 month follow-up. It went very well. I was at about 230. So, a loss of just over 55 pounds. The doc said I had met my three month medical goal and was almost to my six month medical goal.

The doc also said that I was at the sweet spot in my weight loss journey. To paraphrase, my pouch (new stomach) will stretch back out a little and the connection will loosen at 12-18 months out (although it should never return to the size it was pre-op). So, basically (although he didn’t say this outright), it would be ideal if I could reach goal weight within that time frame. I’ve got 90-95 pounds more to lose to reach my goal weight (as opposed to my medical goal – which I don’t even know!). Currently, I’m losing 10-12 pounds a month. It’s a rate of loss that I’m not particularly thrilled with because I’m completely unrealistic! 😂 If I continue that rate of loss, I will reach my goal weight within the year which is good since I feel like I’m in a race against the clock now!

Speaking of rate of loss, I’ve been at about 230 pounds for about two weeks now. It’s incredibly annoying. I hate stalls! Well, I just hopped on the scale and saw 228! It’s a tiny difference but it makes me optimistic that I’ve broken the stall! Onederland, I’m coming for you!
