  1. Checking in.. I was sleeved 7/24, just want to see how everybody's doing? Are you still losing?? Are you at goal weight yet?? I'm 9 pounds from my surgeons goal, but I'm going for another 10 ontop of that, so really thinking I'm 19 pounds from goal. I am finally losing again and making sure that my eating is right. Upping my workouts again and hoping to get to goal by my birthday in September.
  2. I just got my new Jawbone UP over the weekend, so excited...! Now I need some friends.. does anybody else have this bracelet and app? I would love toknow how to add friends and get some accountability going

    Stalled and starting to worry

    I cannot tell you how many days I was stuck at 220 but it was a long time!! Monday and Tuesday of this week I tried liquids only, it included shakes, creamy soup and lots of water, I am 215.5 as of yesterday.. maybe you can try liquids?
  5. Yes, measure.. eat and enjoy pooping because after the first week it will not come as easily as it has your entire life!! I know TMI, but it happens
  6. I am two months two weeks and four days out from surgery.. I have lost 49 pounds to date and can only pray that I lose like you! You have done an amazing job!!! Thanks for sharing

    Tail Bone Hurts!

    I thought my surgeon dropped me lol!! I have had the same problem since surgery on 7/24. Okay.. now I will start focusing on muscle in the butt.. who knew. I really have been complaining thinking that he did something to me..

    Its real!

    How are you feeling? Praying for a speedy recovery
  10. My doc never said to spread them out. I am curious about it though. I forget to take mine too. My office said that our body absorbs only 500 at a time, so anything over that is not being stored, but wasted.
  11. I am a little over 3 weeks out.. oh and stalled and haven't really done much for exercise. I went for a walk two weeks ago, walked for about an hour and really felt pain for several days. My incisions are stiched to my stomach muscles and I could tell that I did something wrong. I have been coming up with lots of excuses.. it's too hot, I don't want to hurt myself again.. blah blah.. at what point did you really put yourself in gear and start walking to lose the weight?
  12. Thanks for that. The excuse I am making at this time is the pain I get from walking for a normal period of time because my incisions are stiched to my stomach muscles, and like all muscles, walking contracts the muscles. Therefor making major pain for days following a good walk. I was posting more to see if anybody else had that issue around the same point in time as I did so I could get some advise on when I would be able to start walking like a normal timed walk, because I feel bad about the fact that I cannot walk like I think I should at this time.
  13. Sheryl.. it's me. Samantha LOL!

    Ahh man! I am sorry to hear about this! I was sleeved a little over 3 weeks ago, and so far so good.. with the exception of possibly tearing a stich. I hope you start feeling better and turn out happy with your decision. Again, I am sorry for your complication. Keeping you in my prayers.
  15. I am super excited to get started, I have a gym at work and free personal training, I think I really just want to know that it's okay thatI haven't jumped in just yet. I know that I can't wait for it to be a part of my life, I have 4 awesome kiddos and a great husband and can't wait to do outdoor things as a family. I think I'll give it one more week and get busy.. starting with walking each day and then when cleared at my 2 month follow up, I'll get that trainer a run for their time
  16. Use to scare me, but I am so happy to say that even at a high weight, I can look at the number and instantly know that this is the last time I will ever see that number I am so happy with my decision thus far. I will be 3 weeks out tomorrow and can't wait to be able to eat a "normal size" portion and live my skinny life

    when did you go back to work?

    I was sleeved 7/24 and today is my first day back to work. It has been really good.. I have a desk job so I'm just sitting I have found it so much easier to get my fluids in here at work vs at home. Good luck and CONGRATS!!!
  19. Yep.. protein protein protein is what my dr said will limit the amount of hair we lose. I am only a little over a week out and can't stop saying it.. I have thick hair and could use a little less, but only on my terms. I don't want it to start falling out

    Before/after - self image

    Ahh I'm sorry to hear that you aren't feeling good about your awesome loss That's all. I don't personally know you or your story, so I just say this.. I'm sure you were a beautiful person before surgery and will be regardless of your weight. You have lost an amazing amount of weight and you should be so proud of where you've come. Have a great day
  21. I can relate a little. My family is very supportive, I am actually really in shock still about how supporting my normally non supportive husband has been I'm serious.. I don't know who he is right now lol. The part that I can relate is this: I have 4 kids ages 11,13,17 and 18.. now they are all great kids. They didn't choose to have 85% of their stomachs removed, so I feel like I couldn't ask them to keep everything away. They need their snacks and treats and I have to just look at them and choose everyday to avoid them (not the kids, the snacks lol). My two older k work at Chick Fil A and smell like it, and if you've ever had it you know how good it is. This journey is a choice, and we can either choose to be really good, or we can choose to cheat a little. It's our journey and it doesn't matter to anybody else. Just try your hardest to do what you know is right for you and you'll be fne good luck!!

    Surgery tomorrow

    SullyB.. how are you holding up? I am still a little sore at all of my incisions, and can't sleep well at all due to not being able to get comfy I am taking about 2 oz per meal, and am getting in about 40oz of Water, plus tea. I've also decided that I don't like food the way I use to. I can't wait to find something I like to eat Hope you are doing well!!

    Tyipical day of eating

    I was sleeved on 7/24. I can eat about 2 oz a meal and I drink about 1/4 of a protien shake 2 times a day for a snack. My meals lately have been greek yogurt, refried beans/cheese, oh and I can't forget about my favorite lunch.. one piece of sliced turkey with a little chive and onion cream cheese in the middle (and I could only eat half) lol!
