I am coming up on my 9 month sleeve post-op-aversary. I had another good loss this week. I am down another 2 lbs. I am down 72 lbs in nine months, and 85 from my highest pre-band weight. That is an average of 8 lbs per month. This last month I have lost 6 lbs and I am thrilled with that! I also hit another exciting milestone today. My BMI is officially under 30 and I am no longer obese and am just plain old overweight. In the next 3 months I would love to lose another 10 lbs. That should be doable, and would bring me 5 lbs from my goal.
I am so happy with my sleeve and the freedom it allows me. I am so pleased with the life I am leading. I still have days where I get so frustrated and realize how hard weight loss really is, but I think I am understanding how my body works (for now).
