    hello every one!

    I had surgery the same day you are doing great! don't compare to others, everyone has their own story. important that you are losing and you are feeling better/healthier. I started out at a lot more than you, 314 and I have lost about 79 pounds.

    October Sleevers! Announce Yourselves

    Congrats on your weight loss Holly! I agree that it takes a huge weight loss to see a size change. It was kind of discouraging in the beginning........but I have finally thrown some clothes out!!

    October Sleevers! Announce Yourselves

    Hello October sleevers! My surgery date was October 22, 2012. I am down 68.5 pounds. I'm quite happy with my loss considering that I hate drinking water and I haven't been exercising. I am suffering with a bone spur on my left heel and can't walk and can't take most meds. Other than my heel, I am feeling great I would recommend it to anyone. (well, anyone that needs to lose a considerable amount of weight)
  9. I also had surgery on 10/22 and I have lost 56 lbs and maybe one pant size. I weigh 261 lbs now and there is NO way that I could get into a size 16, I'm still hovering between 24 and 26. I had hoped to lose more by now, and quite honestly thought that losing 56 lbs would have moved into a smaller pant size. Anyway, I should be very happy with my loss considering that I don't get enough water and I don't exercise.

    NSV-Its called a laptop for a reason...

    this week's NSV? making my bed so easily, I just had to pull the blanket up a little bit.....why? because I went to sleep and didn't move an inch. I used to toss and turn all night because of back pain, now I don't!!

    Give it time. I didn't check the scale until I went back to my doctor at 10 days. Good luck to you and don't get discouraged. We've all been there.

    3 months out and Losing Steam

    Hi Becky! It's amazing, were you just inside my head? I had surgery on Oct. 22. I've lost about 56 pounds. I also feel like I'm losing steam. However, yesterday I forgot my uniform at home and worked in my "normal" clothes. I got so many comments about my weight loss. That should keep me going. For some reason I am avoiding the scale. Last time I checked I had not lost anymore weight. It really discouraged me. I have my 3 month check up soon. I've decided that I don't want to get on the scale until then. I hope that I will have a pleasant surprise. Keep coming back, there is a lot of encouragement on this site.

    SyrRose, Did you get this from your sleeve nutritionist? It seems like a normal diet. I haven't found one nutritionist that is too experienced with sleeve surgery here in Lebanon. You need more Protein and less carbohydrates. How far are you post surgery? Online read about a program by a Dr. Joseph Chebli, it gives you a good starting program. Just Google his name. Good luck

    300+ To Loose... Just Got My Surgery Date

    I agree with MDM, try a male doctor. I know a lot of ladies are shy and think that it is better to have a female doctor....but not necessarily. I had very irregular periods when I was younger. Went from one female GYN to another. One told me YOU ARE FAT, this is how it's going to be. I went to a male doc and told him that my last period was 14 days. He yelled, that's HALF of your life, we gotta do something, and he did. Give the guy docs a try. My prayers are with you.
