9 months out (almost)

Sign in to follow this  


Well, it's been a while since I've checked in with everyone and in 2 days it will be my 9 month anniversary from surgery. The last couple of months have been very difficult for me in terms of anxiety/depression, but for the most part things are under control now and I am still so very happy that I had the opportunity to have this wonderful procedure. I really like this place a lot and am so grateful for all of the kind and knowledgeable people here.


For all the pre-op and initial post-op people I am going to list my stats below because although I know we are are different and will have different journeys, it was so motivating to read about other's journeys. I'll also update my album, because I still enjoy looking at other's pictures.



Consultation (6/09): 238 lbs.

Surgery Day (8/09): 222 lbs.

One Month: 201 lbs.

Two Months: 186 lbs.

Three Months: 175 lbs.

Four Months: 162 lbs.

Five Months: 153 lbs.

Six Months: 149 lbs.

Seven Months: 143 lbs.

Eight Months: 138 lbs.

Currently (5/10): 138-140 pounds



Waist: 43" to 29 "

Hips: 51" to 36"

Bust: 45.5" to 34.5"


Clothing- (clothing sizes are such a range; I just bought one large dress and a size 2 skirt...it just depends on the brand and cut)

Pants: 22/24 to 4/6

Tops: 22 (2XL) to 6 (small/med/lg)

Dresses/Skirts: 2XL to 4/6 (small/med/lg)

Bra: 40/42 DD to 34 C

Thank you for posting this! So many people seem to stop posting about their progress after the first few months. It is nice to see how stable things are for you - you are doing great!! I look forward to checking out your photos too.

You look absolutely fantastic DeeDee and are such an inspiration to me! I've even looked into joining Jazzercise in the Atlanta area! :-)

I've missed you around here, and wasn't sure what was going on, but didn't want to impose.

You've done amazing through your journey, and I'm so glad to see you posting again.

You are really an inspiration! You look beautiful and TINY in your photo. It's hard to imagine that you were a size 22/24 less than a year ago. I started out at a size 28. I love to be able to look at my calendar/weight loss graph and predict reasonable goals for when I will be able to wear each smaller size on the way down to normal. Thanks for sharing your stats and encouraging us newbees.

So glad to see you post again! My surgery weight was close to yours but you lost faster than me I see, (too many carbs). So happy for you. Are you having any trouble maintaining?
