Day 1




I consider this the first day because it's the first day of journaling. Which can help me grow. And I need to grow.

I had gastric plication February 11, 2011. The best thing I've done for myself. Well, among other things. I started my journey at 258 lbs. OCC asked me to lose 20 lbs. before my surgery. I figured it was to show I could be disciplined. I did that and went into the clinic at 238 lbs. I stayed for three days to assess my vitals. When given the go ahead I came home. I had a few uncomfortable feelings over the next week or so. Once I ate a spicy meal and threw it up. That was the last time I did that. I reduced my food intake by 2/3. I've maintained that. My food choices are where I haven't changed. Sometimes I think I should diet, but I don't want to. I had the surgery so that I wouldn't have to change what I like to eat.

Over the next 10 months to 1 year, I lost 95 lbs. 165 is a good weight. Not what I weighed in high school, but I'm 65 and the smaller I am the more excess skin I have. I have my ups and downs and so with that said, I'll check in tomorrow with another day in the life.

Thanks for listening

Congratulations on your weight loss. I had plication surgery om 9-2-14 and haven't looked back. I'm down 58 pounds and it is slow going. I am going to be 63 soon so I am taking it slow. Having a right hip replacement in April so my exercising is going slow. Keep journaling!
