tomorrow marks one month since I had surgery. I've lost a total so far of 40 lbs. The first week, understandably, was very rough. today I went to the gym by my job. did 30 minutes on the bike which was about 6 miles. Next week the band gets adjusted for the first time. so that should be interesting. but all in all, today was a good day. had my protein shake in the morning, will have my afternooner later today.

This past wednesday Dr. Strom took out my last remaining stitches and gave me the all clear to start becoming a gym rat. I will have my first band adjustment on March 4. So then I assume I'll start to average the 2 pound weight loss as opposed to the 6 a week I seem to drop. At work this past week, I have returned, like MacArthur. Anyway, I've made it a point to park a little further away from the front entrance and actually get up and walk during my breaks. I joined an 'active for life' work thing where basically they want us to get off our asses and be active. I'm the team captain! LOL and today, I weigh in at 310 lbs. So.....I'VE LOST 40 LBS. so that's pretty cool.
On the 27, i'll take my 1 month photo of my surgery.

So where does the time go. On the 4th I had the bandages taken out! That was pretty cool and as of today, i'm down 33 lbs since my weigh in on the 19th of January when I came in at 350 pounds. that's a big sum'bitch. the biggest. so it's nice to see some progress. looking forward when I come in below 300. I'm on the puree/stage 2 part of the postOp. it's amazing the things you can blend. Like chicken cutlets and tofu. blended into a pate, with some Franks. it's a blended Buffalo wing.doesn't look the best but tastes almost like a buffalo wing. LOL but so it goes...so it goes.
