Two weeks post-surgery #1 and I've dropped just over 10 pounds. While I wouldn't advocate jaw surgery as a diet, it sure does work.
Speaking of jaw surgery and diets, Delag (a contributor over at the Archwired web-site) found a really good web-site dedicated to those people who have their jaws wired / banded for whatever reason. The web-site is called *8 Weeks Wired* and offers advice on such topics as pre & post surgery care, nutrition, recipes, supplies, et cetera. I haven't had a chance to go through the whole web-site yet ... will do that prior to next week's surgery.
