Dropping the Pounds

Today was my first post-op appointment with my surgeon. I was super excited, because I haven't been weighed since my pre-op appointment on November 22. I have lost a total of 15 lbs.! I could not be more ecstatic, especially since I indulged myself with a few favorites before having my surgery.

The Davis holiday party on Saturday was a blast! Patti and Eric are the best. The food was delicious, and I was able to enjoy it in moderation. I received so many compliments on how great I looked in my dress, and I felt amazing! Thanks to Marcus for being my debonair date for the evening.
It's been 3 years since I last wore this dress!

We're fancy... huh?

I've been able to eat food just fine. I'll get my first "fill" in about a month, so that may change. The key is to concentrate when I eat my meals. I have to focus on chewing my food well and eat slowly. That's a lot harder to do than you may think, especially when you're used to inhaling all your meals. I am most excited that I've now been medically cleared to start exercising. Let the pound shedding begin!


  1. Well, lil Missy, I can already tell that the lbs are packing up and moving out. 15 pounds in a week is just awesome. Keep it up.

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you... You're far too kind.
