Yay! Almost 2 months post-op... and Almost 50 pounds gone!

I've lost 49.5 pounds so far(Surgery was April 1st)... with no exercise and very little "Dieting" I am thrilled with my sleeve... I am hoping to be able to exercise soon after my long recovery from my complications. but I will stick to the pool for a while. I felt so different from when I had my lapband...I don't like sweets as much for some amazing reason. It is easier to know when to stop eating. i can eat anything, only in small amounts. I think this really seems like a lifestyle change, not a diet!

Things I love still... after Sleeve.

I love....

  • Pickles, especially Mt. Olive Bread and Butter No Sugar Added
  • Fish, Thank God, I still love my Tilapia.... It's my favorite.
  • Salad, I sort of crave it sometimes. I love the Olive Garden Lite dressing that I got at Walmart... Tastes just like the original with alot less calories. 
  • Chicken, A staple in my diet... so I am glad I still love it. 
  • Ground turkey, I am thrilled to still enjoy it, And it is way versatile. 
I have been craving only savory... which means I am not really wanting my greek yogurts or protein shakes... This is actually quite weird since I have always been a sweet tooth... I am a sugar addict. I am working on figuring out a new routine that will work for my new needs.

Here I am.... still recovering but feeling much better. I spent another 8 days in the hospital since we last spoke.... with Bloodclots. I am still weak and sore but I feel better each day. 

As for weight loss.... I am down 37.5 pounds since pre-op. The doctor says it should be more but I am retaining alot of water in my right leg. I was happy with the weight loss, considering everything that has happened since my surgery.
