2 Weeks Post-Op

Hi everyone! Today is my 2 week surgaversary! I wanted to do a weigh-in update and an overview video of what it’s been like since surgery and what was the surgery process/hospital stay like.

Let’s start with the weigh in!

Highest Weight (Jan 3, 2013): 251.6 lbs

Day of Surgery (Mar 6, 2013): 231.5 lbs

Two Weeks Post-Op (Mar 20, 2013): 220.7 lbs

Eek! That means I’m down 10.8 since surgery and 30.9 lbs total. I was really hoping I’d be out of the 220’s before today but that’s ok. I know I will be for next week’s weigh-in. I’m hoping for a 5 lb loss this week. Cross your fingers for me! I need to stay on top of water, protein, and walking because that seems to be the 3 main triggers to moving the scale.

    • Thanks! I don’t have any regrets. I actually just discussed this a little in my video (which is now posted). 🙂

      Have you finished all the pre-requirements for surgery that your insurance requires yet?

  2. Dana, you look amazing! You might not see it now, but look at your first video from like a month ago. I can totally see it in your face! Good for you.

  3. Way to go Dana. I can also see changes in your face. I wish I knew my new surgery date. Sometimes next week I will know. So excited. And I’m so excited for you too. It sounds that you’re doing really good. I’m so happy for you.
