So its been five days since my surgery - and I'm already down 8 lbs! I got so excited I thought I would post my first selfie since the surgery. (and if you know me - you know I'm not into selfies!)
You can tell the difference right? (or is it just me?)
My before pic is actually before the pre-op diet - so here I've lost a total of 23lbs.
I'm feeling great. Walking as much as I can, breathing into that plastic breathing tool and learning to sip sip sip! That's probably the hardest part so far. I was a chugger or drinks and shoveler of food! Bad habits that need to be broken asap!
Thank you guys so much for all the wonderful comments and words of encouragement on this blog and on my facebook page. You guys are the best. I know some of you were concerned about the price. Listen - I totally understand. But weight loss surgeries are covered by most ppo insurance plans. Call your insurance and ask about bariatric surgery. Talk to your doctor and see if you are a candidate. Its not an overnight thing... planning this takes time and a lot of thought.
But its worth it!
When you are ready for a free consultation - call Beverly Hills Physicians. I checked around to a couple bariatric places and I found that these guys were the best with pre and post care. It really matters where you go. And it wont cost you a penny just to ask and see if this is right for you. I will go with you if you want the company. Seriously! I believe in Beverly Hills Physicians and Dr Misra THAT much!
Ok - gotta run. I will check in soon. You guys are the best!
