    Sleeve to Bypass weight loss

    I have lost 75lbs 10 months post sleeve to RNY revision.
  2. I am 70lbs down with my sleeve to RNY revision. I still suffer with heartburn so that is a bit of a disappointment. I was hoping between the revision and the hernia fix it would take care of it.

    Hi everyone! Glad to see you all are progressing well. I am still losing very slow. April I tracked 3.4lbs loss, same for June. I have 32lbs to get to my personal goal. I thought I would be further along, but honestly it doesn't disappoint me any more. I no longer have back and knee pain. My clothes are too big and I can walk with my kids and go to the pool without so much shame. I am getting there and will get to my personal goal. Drs goal has me losing and additional 20lbs but I don't even worry about that! I make good choices 85 percent of the time.

    Hi everyone! It is so hard to believe we are almost 7 months post op! I am 39lbs away from my personal goal of 175! I am still working out only 2-3x a week. My schedule is just crazy! My goal is to lose 1.5lbs a week. I am just trying to be realistic at this point. My average has been 6-8lbs a month since month 3 and I. April I only lost 2lbs. That totally sucked but I am still pressing forward. Yes, it is so much easier to snack now, but I really try to watch it! I don't cut my carbs completely and enjoy fruit, triskets, pretzels and crackers from time to time. I just don't OVER endulge.

    Thank you! That is a great idea! I tell you this is an interesting process it is great to see how we are all doing 6 months out. I am thankful for this process! I am so much a social eater and I miss my wine! But I am hanging tough in that department. Thank you all for sharing your updates.
  7. I had sleeve to RNY revision on 10/21. I have lost 57lbs. My recovery was more difficult 2nd surgery, but I don't regret it for a minute. Love my bypass. I will be 6 months out on the 21st and hope to be 60+ lbs down

    I don't dump either. The past few weeks have been rough and I need to hit my personal goal of 217 for my 6 month appt. that will put me at 60lbs lost in 6 months. Very slow in comparison to others so I try not to compare. I was disappoint I don't dump. But I took some NyQuil and landed in the emergency room and was out of work almost a week. I started personal training but still need to get more consistent with my weekly workouts. I am starting a new position and it will make my already long day longer. Hoping I can in corporate it into my lunch hour. I am not hungry but head hunger is horrible. I try to stay away from junk most of the time.

    Isopure ready-made protein drinks

    I like the lemon black tea I mix with water and it cuts the after taste. I also like the cocotine fruit punch.

    Thank you! You are doing great @60&goin4it. The activity does help. I started working out last week and I have personal training once a week. I am 48lbs to my goal of 100lbs lost my surgeons goal is an additional 22lbs. I am just trying not to look that far ahead. This week was tough and I landed in the ER. So just trying to stay hydrated because I have not met protein goals all week. I have been unable to eat. Hoping for a better week!

    Hi! Hope everyone is doing well. I had bit of a setback this week and had to go back to liquids. I thought it was my gallbladder thank goodness it was nothing serious! I am 53lbs done and halfway to my goal.

    It's not as fast as I thought it would be, but being a revision patient I was told it would be slower. Plus I really can't complain about 40lbs in 12 weeks!
  17. I had revision from sleeve to RNY in Oct. my GERD is still here. My surgeon said with the more weight I lose it will hopefully go away. There is no guarentee. I have had no complications and I was scared! I am happy my decision.

    I joined the gym last week and this week stuck in the house because of blizzard. I had my 3 month appt last week. Labs look great, I had to cut back on my B vitamins and my cholesterol is 120! I am losing hair too. I have lost 28% of excesos weight. They don't like to set goals, but told me at 6 months they like to see 40-50% EWL. I think once I get in the gym. I have been snacking a bit much being stuck at home. Trying to drink plenty of water. The struggle is Real!

    I know and thank you! I guess I am more concerned about what the dr thinks. My last visit I think they expected more and stalls where never mentioned. I expected it honestly. I am just concerned how they will respond at my next appt and I think that is where the pressure comes from.

    change of body smell

    I smelt different after surgery. I think the vitamins did something to me. That was back when I was on straight liquids. My breath was horrible and my body odor and urine was different. I am 7 weeks out and glad to report I am back to normal.

    Discomfort with drinking and eating

    I had bypass 10/21. I can drink comfortably with no problem. At first it would take me hours to drink a protein shake, now I can drink a premier protein in about 30-40 minutes. Some days I prefer something flavored like propel and other days just plain H2O. My program does not allow rice, bread, pasta or quinoa. They have more low carb/paleo program.

    Thank you!! I do weigh everyday but track only on Weds. It is still crazy to think weeks 3-7 almost nothing! It's like how can you eat so little and not lose weight lol!
