So, I had lap band surgery 2 weeks ago, and I have lost 32 lbs so far!

I'm so excited and happy right now, I just wanted to share.

If anyone is considering surgical intervention for weight loss, DO IT.

The first few days are rough....and painful. But it's worth it. (So far, for me anyway)

The diet sucks....I was on liquids for 3 weeks! One week before the surgery, to reduce the size of my liver, and the first two weeks after surgery. I've moved on to puréed foods now and I can't tell you how good 2 tablespoons of scrambled egg tastes! Also, I have "discovered" a secret. Fage Greek Yogurt. It tastes just like sour cream. It's fat free and packed with protein and I mix it in EVERYTHING.

I'm so happy!!!

I hope all of you SIers are doing well!!!

I sub Greek yogurt into everything that calls for sour cream. I even use it on my tacos instead of sour cream!

WTG on the weightloss. Apparently I am on a weight gain cycle - I can shove enough food into my mouth Perhaps I should have my jaw wired shut!
