Weight loss surgery (WLS) patients are encouraged (and sometimes required) to lose weight prior to surgery. So I've been drinking more water, eating my protein first, and trying to eat smaller portions and not rush through my meals. As a results, I've lost almost 20 lb. Now, I can see it. I've noticed it in my face. My clothes are fitting loser too. But when I ask my family if they can notice, they look at me like I'm nuts.
This is why I was walking on air at work the other day when someone passed me in the hall and asked me if I'd lost some weight!
See... I'm not crazy. You really can see it!
I'm hoping I can lose another 5 before my surgery for a total of 25. The smaller I am, the less risky the surgery will be and I'm all about minimizing risk.
