    Certain time

    You just need to find what works best for you. Since you work late, what time do you eat normally? I was on a 14 day liquid only pre- op diet and I tried to just replace my regular meal with my shake. For me sticking to my normal schedule worked best for me. Good luck to you, you will do great.
  3. You are doing great! I am very happy with my progress but I am 7 months out and I have not lost 60 pounds yet. I am down 54 lbs. I had my fourth fill Dec 29th and I really feel like I am in the green zone now. I am happy for you both that you are loosing so fast.

    Had My 3Rd Fill

    My 3rd fill did it for me too, good luck to you.
  5. Good luck, surgery is not bad. Just remember to get up and start walking as soon as they will let you. Walking is the best thing to get rid of the gas they fill you up with.

    K6TYX I am in the same boat as you. MFP has me on 1200 cal a day and I am loosing very slow. I am going for my 2nd fill on August 9 so I am going to check with the doc to see if I should lower my daily calories. I had my surgery on June 1 an am down 26 lbs, 12 of that was from my pre op diet. I am going to drop to 1000 till I see him on the 9 th to see if it helps. I will let you know how it works for me. Feel free to add me on MFP eahalstead
  14. I am glad that I am not the only one who feels that the weight loss is slower than I expected. I have lost 26 lbs. I really wanted to be under 200 lbs by now but I am still loosing a little each week so I am happy with that. I go for my 2nd fill next week so I am hoping I get some restriction with that. My doc is pleased with my loss, he suggests loosing no more than 2 lbs per week. I think you are all doing great and you are the people that keep me going. I am so glad to have this site to "talk" to other people who are going through the same things.
