One week… just one week ago today I was on my way to Chicago to get the duodenal switch procedure… It has been a great week… I feel great, a little sore but nothing horrible… the great thing is as I’ve said before starting out in November I weighed 395 (way to close to 400). And then after the first of the year I stopped drinking Pop just so it would be one less thing to give up post op… as the result of that I weighed 371 10 days prior to surgery… and then due to the 10 day 800-1000 calorie diet I weighed 357 the morning of the surgery… this morning, one week post op I weighed and I weighed 347…. That is a grand total of 48 pounds!!!!! I know that this is just the first 48 of a lot… but it’s still awesome to me! I’m still wearing the same clothes but they are not tight at all (and that is going from me not feeling comfortable sitting in them)…. Last night I was at my Mom’s and she pulled out some pictures of me when I was in High School… (Thin)… My son didn’t know it was me I can’t wait till the day that he looks at those pictures and he just see’s a younger version of his Daddy… and then there is the whole Blood Sugar thing… the highest number I’ve seen since I got home was 99… I take nothing for it now… I felt like I was about to get a second chance before the surgery…. Now I feel like I’m in that second chance… And I love it… anyway; I’m going to get off here.
