The Incredible Shrinking Woman

So...I had my Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy on the 16th...6 days ago. I thought I'd feel better than I do. It's still a bit painful to swallow stuff and have "food" which is just liquids in my tummy for now. I see the surgeon tomorrow for a follow up. I was totally wishing they could undo what they'd done to me about 30 minutes after I woke up in the recovery room. I felt awful.

Today I'm feeling slightly better. I actually got up, got a shower, did my hair and makeup. I took a picture of myself and put it side by side with a photo I took on October 27. All I can say is A. MAY. ZING.! I took my measurements and I'm down 14.25 inches since the surgery! I guess feeling like garbage is paying off.


  1. I agree! AMAZING! So happy for you and excited for what's next!

  2. Rennie, you do look great! So Pretty as always. I'm pulling for you. I know that this has to be very difficult but it has to be worth it. I know as the years go by, the weight has creeped up on me and I have very little motivation. I thought w/ me having to go back to work full time that it would help to keep the weight down. Not too much. So NOW is the time to do this! SO proud of you!

  3. Thank you everyone, for all of the encouragement!
