I am so happy with my continued progress since surgery. I feel like I could move mountains! My wife and I have been working hard on our house renovations, but most of all we have been working on me learning how to walk again. Baby steps, i use my walker around the house, but when we go out somewhere, to the store, to my congregation meetings, I am still using my wheelchair. It's not easy for me, I am a driven person who likes to push the limits and in the past it has cost me. So, This time, with her help, we are going a little slower. I really listen to my body now. If it says I need to take a day off, then I do, no questions asked. Today is also my dedicated weigh in day and I lost another 4.6 pounds! I am a half of a pound away from being in the 200's!! It's a crazy and scary thought, because I have been in the 300's since before i was a teenager. I graduated high school at a whopping 475!! I am feeling better every day and I am going to keep it that way! Having the Gastric Sleeve done is truly saving my life!! I have lost over 58 pounds since May 4th!
