3 month post-op appointment

Thursday, October 13, 2016

I am utterly amazed at my progress!

Today, I had my 3 month post surgery appointment with my gastric surgeon. He is in complete amazement at my progress so far (as am I), so much so that he has named me his poster child for weight loss surgery emoticon . I don't know about poster child, but My wife and I are very pleased with the results and the effect it has had on our whole family. She has lost 58 pounds since May 4th and I have now lost 91.4 pounds! Our daughter has lost weight as well and our son is still a bean pole emoticon . I have volunteered to speak at future weight loss seminars, and I have changed my goal weight to 185. ALL of my test results came back stellar!

We are hunkering down for major storms tonight through Tuesday, one of which is leftovers from a super typhoon bringing with 70+ mile an hour winds and TONS of rain. They are forecasting flooding and power outages, thankfully we have a wood stove if the power goes out.

    PS: Do you live in the Seattle area? They are predicting nasty storms and high winds here over the next couple of days.

    Great accomplishments, NSFDAD! It's so thrilling to watch the scales move downward instead of the opposite, and I'm proud of you and your family.

    Best wishes for the future, and stay safe this weekend. emoticon

    That is awesome that the whole family is benefiting from your wls. I also have a son who is a bean pole so he is not joining in on the weight loss but my husband and daughter have been joining in.

    I am so happy for you that you are gaining your life back.

    Stay safe in the stormy weather.
