3 months post op

3 months post op 29 pounds gone and down 4 pants sizes and 2 or 3 shirt sizes !
Tomorrow is 3 months since my surgery . What a difference in my
over all general health I can feel . Someone asked me today if I regretted my choice to have this surgery .
The answer is NO, not just NO but HECK NO !! Since the day I had surgery I have felt little to no joint aches, body aches, or severe fatigue ( besides normal post op fatigue ) . I am not on full solid foods and can eat what ever I want, by what ever i mean ANYTHING . Good huh ? If i wanted I could eat bread but I choose not to . I can eat any protein I want which had not been done in over a year due to the issues with my lap band. The only "bad" thing that I have experience with this surgery is dumping syndrome .
Which is not a "bad" thing . Eating sweets can cause dumping syndrome, so i think of it as my own kin of aversion   therapy !  So all in all i feel pretty good.

I did experience a stall , not loosing weight for a little over a month . That has since been lifted and Im loosing again . All and all i am very happy with my progress !
