Well...I done did it

Saturday, March 10, 2018

Greetings everyone,
It is time to document a new journey in my life. 5 days ago I had bariatric surgery, a sleeve gastrectomy. I am hoping this works out well, and I am 100% committed to doing the journey correctly. I have the loving support of Cheetara and looking forward to a newer, healthier me. I will make every attempt to put in regular blog updates.

So far I have been adapting to the clear liquids post op diet much better than I expected to. I have had some issues with pain management, and significant issues with resting and not working. I have to admit at this point, I am a committed workaholic, and honestly I think one of the biggest obstacles to my success is going to prioritizing health over work, but I think I can do it. I have decided to not weigh myself post-op until after my doctor says the effects of the surgery have gone down, as I have read countless accounts of how post op swelling and body readjustment caused panic amongst gastric sleeve recipients.

here we go!
