Not Worth the Weight

Documenting my experience of having a sleeve gastrectomy. PROs, CONs, and everything in between.

I am 18 days into my WLS experience and 4 days post op (sleeve).  As of this morning, I have lost 28lbs.  This koi is around 30lbs.  Other things that weigh about 28lbs are 4 gallons of water, 20 dz eggs, a 2.5 year old child, and the average amount of cheese an American eats in a year.  It’s astonishing to think about it AND I still have swelling and fluid retintion from the surgery. Unreal.

Been having issues posting content. My content, like me, is to big.  Tumblr can’t hold me!!!  I have sadness in my left eye as a result.  I think I have it resolved though. Look for a vidro post shortly!

I’m not fat…I have a broadened horizon!!! (damn that’s alot of belt) I think I will hold monthly belt cutting ceremonies - maybe on the 1st of each month to mark anniversaries.

Two full days in and I am down 9lbs.  The difference is noticeable don’t you think?

Looking for some tasty low/no carb eats for my pre-op meals. Got ideas? HIT ME!!!

The journey begins. The electrodes on my neck sense when I am hungry and send an electric pulse (like a taser) through me to create a negative association with hunger and food.  j/k those are headphones. #gastricsleeve #keepitlight
