I never expected to lose weight like magic after the weight-loss surgery. The weight would come off quickly, I knew, mainly through a combination of lifestyle change and a very limited diet.
But it sure seems like magic.
This morning, on the scale, I realized that I had lost slightly more than 10 pounds in the 10 days since my surgery. That’s about a pound a day. I know this is an unsustainable rate of weight loss; it will slow down as I add more foods into my diet, and plateaus are inevitable. But this is amazing. And, for someone who has been stuck in a certain weight zone for several years, it feels pretty darn good.
