Will T Posted May 22, 2008 Report Share Posted May 22, 2008 Here are my stats so far. I'm a techno-geek, everyone, so please bear with all the numbers. I have an Excel spreadsheet on my desktop and weighing every morning has become something FUN for the first time in my life. Instead of the weights, I'll post the weight LOSS over time. My results may or may not be typical, but they are my actual numbers. Starting the pre-op diet: March 22 Weight loss 0 Day of surgery, 16 days later: April 8: Weight loss 13.5 pounds Day of first fill, 55 days from pre-op: May 17 Weight loss 21 pounds First fill + 5 days: May 22: Weight loss 26.5 pounds Goal: 106 pounds. That gets me back to my college football playing weight (as a freshman in college) # of PBs: 3 (too much, too fast caused all of them, I think) first fill: 5 cc in a 10 cc band in Roswell, GA (the staff there are WONDERFUL) # of times I've felt like I am starving: ZERO favorite no-calorie drink: Crystal-lite... half tea, half lemonade (a calorie-free Arnold Palmer) My ONLY regret at this point: Not knowing about Dr. Ortiz in 2003. If I had to do this all over again, I would do it WITHOUT hesitation. Getting up every morning, I almost RUN to the scales to see how much I've lost. My weight is lower this morning than it has been in 8 years. I have tons of energy, and already the joints that usually ache in the mornings and evenings are springing to life once more.
