    AtlantaRed reacted to livvsmum in 9 Months and 126 Pounds Lost - with pics   
    Hi all - Just thought I would share my 9 month post op pics. I've lost 126 pounds so far with about 8 to go until goal. While the weight is still coming off, one of the most significant things I've started to do this month is begin to work through the emotional and compulsive eating issues that got me to nearly 300 pounds to begin with. It's been a really emotional month, but I am feeling really good about keeping the weight off long term because I am starting to deal with the core issues rather than the symptoms.
    Anyway, here are my most recent pics.

    Good Morning December sleevers! I was sleeved December 20, 2013.. My starting weight was 335 and I am currently 237! Only a couple more pounds until the 100 mark! This has been an amazing journey! The beginning was difficult and at time I definitely second guessed my judgement, but all in all I would do it all over again.. I was a size 26 and now I am in a size 18... Excited to see so many December sleevers! Keep up the great work guys!
    Starting weight: 335
    Current weight: 237
    Total lost: 98 lbs

    Wow, that must be so frustrating! I'm so sorry! Now that you feel you have the doseage right, do you think you can kick start it again with a week of liquid diet or liquid diet or very strict low carb high Protein? I haven't had to go back to the liquid diet yet, but there are times I get very strict with the carbs so I can see some movement on the scale. I eat lots of deli meat/salami for lunch and dinner with a Premier Protein drink for Breakfast. Good luck! I hope that it picks up for you now that your meds are adjusted.

    Alright December Sleevers, I'm hoping that this title brings more people in so we can follow and encourage each other through our journeys.

    I am 40. I'm 5'4" and about 308 right now. I'd like to get to a healthy BMI which would be around 145. I'm hoping for a December 4th or 5th date with Dr. William Johnson.

    Everyone introduce yourselves!

    I, myself, am in the low-carb boat. Some people say, "I got surgery so I wouldn't have to diet." And others say, "I want to eat whatever, just smaller portions of it." However, for myself, even "healthy" carbs slow down my weight loss.
    Bananas are the carbiest fruit. I eat some fruit. I eat a tiny clementine or a few grapes, but only one serving each day. If I stick to meat, I can eat about 3.5 ounces, and I will not get hungry until 3 or 4 hours later. I think adding in carbs/vegetables makes the food not last as long and then you get hungry.
    In my fridge, I have Premier Protein shakes, reduced fat hard salami which I spread cream cheese on and roll up, and Boar's Head black forest ham. For my 2 Snacks, I'll have a small piece of fruit as mentioned above or a Clausen pickle spear or a SF pudding cup. That's about it.
    I also cook for my family. If I make hamburgers, meatloaf, roast beef or chicken, I will have the meat and none of the sides. If I make something with noodles, I'll eat "my food" instead.
    When I added in "healthy" carbs such as cooked dry Beans (chili with meat and beans, lentil Soup with sausage, etc) loss slowed dramatically. Maybe you are one of those people very sensitive to carbs.
    I don't consider my "low carb" way of eating as a dirty 4 letter word "diet". I just know it works and I want this weight off.
    I don't obsess over it. My NUT said carbs above 30, and I do that. I eat the same things everyday so I don't log as much on MFP. However, I do weigh my meat on a food scale to make sure i'm getting between 3.5 and 4 ounces.
    You may just need to focus on cutting the carbs and focusing on meat. I don't even have room for anything else if I eat my 3.5 ounces of meat and I'd rather fill my sleeve with the meat and not 'save room' for a veg that isn't going to add much to calories or Protein.
    I hope you find some balance and find what works for you!

    My final appointment is supposed to be 5 hours. It is supposed to be a nutrition "class" where they discuss the postoo plan in more specifics and also final visit with the surgeon.

    I love, love, love to hike! I don't mean mountains...just local state parks. I like being outdoors. I like going by myself. Get lots of thinking done...if you go long enough, you stop thinking about anything stressful and just focus on finishing! I like doing the longer hikes (usually take me 2 hours to finish) and usually in a loop. That way, you have to finish! You can't just stop. For weights, I actually enjoy going to the gym. I really don't like doing treadmills or other cardio indoors.
