    SleeveandRNYchica got a reaction from jovi2673 in Would You Have Weight Loss Surgery Again?   
    Yes I would but I would probably choose RNY. The weightloss has been challenging. I still feel like I'm on the same emotional losing roller coaster that I was prior to surgery. I wasn't expecting a cakewalk but I'm still busting my hump 5 to 6 days in the gym. So yeah I find that some days I'm a bit frustrated. It really makes it hard to make good choices all the time

    @@GBLady41 So glad to hear from you!!!! Finally you get to start your journey! It has been much easier for me than I had ever dreamed! Surgery wasn't near as bad as thought! The first couple of weeks, hard because of just sipping & trying to get your fluids down. But I'm now 13 months out, reached my goal of 150, & feel better than ever! Best decision I ever made! Wishing you the best of luck & a lot of it is attitude! Be positive & do everything the dr. tells you to do because it does work & you will have the best results following their direction!!

    Hi 60&goin4it,
    I haven't posted in months, but I started posting on BariatricPal around September/October of last year. It's taken more than a year, but I'm finally having surgery on December 12th!! I'm working with BariatricPal TeamMX and Dr. Illan is doing my surgery. I'm so excited!!

    Wow, time flies, right!?! Hope you are all well! I'm doing great My weight loss has screeched to a halt, but I know that is due to my not exercising enough. So happy I got the surgery, though it still feels so surreal sometimes, all this rapid weight loss. I am determined to keep it off! Happy Surgiversary Month, everyone!

    Thank you! You are doing great. I do believe measurements are so important, sometimes the scale does not give us credit where due!

    Ummmm, I cannot wait to have skinny sex with my husband. We have always had great lovin', but I feel like I am more into doing different stuff when I am smaller. Hubby only needs to loose like 20lbs and I am sure that will happen when I am sleeved. (He is not the type to eat crap in front of me either).
    Good for you and good for her
    I don't care what some people say, sex is a very healthy, important part of any relationship. It was actually one of the things the Doc asked me during my psych eval.

    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.

    I've hit my goal of 100 lbs and being under 25 BMI. Woohoo! Thank goodness for gastric sleeve, MyFitnessPal and low carb eating.
    It was fun changing the settings to maintenance mode.
    Before: calories 800, carbs 40, fat 30, Protein 80.
    Now: calories 1200, carbs 80, fat 60, protein 90.
    So much easier. The extra carbs are supposed to come from veggies.
    I'll never feel like "I've got this". I'm addicted to simple carbs and will have to avoid or my hunger will return. Also I have to continue logging my food so that I don't mindlessly eat.
    How are or will you all handle your maintenance???

    So great to hear from you! I hope the rest of the group chimes in too.
    My update is mixed. My highest weight was 278 and I was 257 pre-OP Optifast and 236 I think at surgery. I'm now 146 and still losing but SLOWLY. My eating hasn't been great lately and I'm starting Atkins tomorrow. Carbs send me into a spiral of poor eating choices and cravings. My appetite returned and it's thrown me for a loop. I feel hungry and I can eat! Scary! Lol
    I exercise 3-4x a week and have really started to enjoy combat classes and weight lifting.
    I have this vision of myself strong and centred and fit. That's more important than a number on a scale although it bothers me that at my height I'm still 'overweight'.
    Anyway keep posting! And I hope others will too!
