I am on a diet as a precursor to having gastric bypass, I posted this today to a forum I belong to.
I am amazed at how well I am doing. I am not weighing on a scale right now, I won’t be weighed until the 14th of October but, my clothes have gotten a bit looser. I have had to move my bras in one notch. and, the best part, I have a garnet ring that was too tight on my pinkie that now fits my ring finger, and will turn on it with no problem. My original engagement ring now fits on my index finger and on my middle finger (albeit tightly there.)
I am exercising by lifting upper body weights and have a dvd coming in that is sit down exercises. We are trying to pull together the money to join the local YMCA so I can do some water exercises as that is gentler on the joints that are falling apart.
All and all, I am excited that some of the weight is coming off. I know I have years of work ahead, but, I am actually at the point that I am happy to be counting calories. I am happy that I can wear things that had been put away because I weighed too much to wear them.
