    I am 3 months out and I have lost 60lbs! I am definitely excited about my progress but I would like to keep this going. I know eventually I will slow down losing and I think I am in a stall right now. Can anyone tell me what they did to keep the weight loss going? I still need to lose about 80lbs....
    Thanks

    Nice work Kim
    My sister had surgery before me and she decided not to exercise at the beginning (easy decision) while the weight loss was easy. She then chose to start exercising when the weight loss slowed some. Her reasoning was that if she was gung ho with exercise from the start then when the weight loss slowed she would have to increase the exercise to a level that was not sustainable. So, when I had surgery I did the same thing. I just had the simple walking to and from work for 10 minutes each way and added one treadmill 30 minute walk a week for the first 5 months (remembering that's a lot of exercise anyway when you're that heavy). I felt the slow down 5 months so I started going to the gym twice a week doing cardio and weights (again, alot of exercise LOL). Then, at 9 months I slowed down again some, put up with it for a few weeks then said yes, 5:2 diet. So I have been on 5:2 since and weight is dropping nicely still. I am at month 11 since surgery now and am down 71.6 kilos / 157 pounds.

    I had 2 c sections before my VSG and there is no comparison, this for me was a walk in the park. Surgery was at 7am and by 2 PM was up and walking and by 8 the next morning I was going home. I also had a hiatal hernia repaired during surgery. I am almost 8 weeks post op down 48lbs and loving life!

    I am down a total of 37 lbs. (including preop diet) my pants are starting to get really lose especially in the legs but in my waist I can't go down a size yet. I am walking around looking like I have a load of crap in my pants. I am also still in a 3 week stall, so it's been a week. I am at 4 weeks post op today. So frustrated makes me second guess what the hell I did to myself. Thanks for letting me vent, I am just ready to drop a full size and get this show on the road...

    I am on the liquid preop diet. I just started my fit pal but my intake is something like this:
    4 Protein shakes with un sweetened Almond Milk
    2-4 sugar free Jello
    1 sugar free Popsicle
    At least 80-100 ounces of Water
    I should mention that I am on day 5 of my 14 day preop, I will be sleeved on July 31st.

    Thanks everyone I got a sugar free had to small bites and that was enough. Since surgery I find sugar free items to still be to sweet. However I would live a pickle-sicle right now!!! I have never been a big sweet eater.

    Thanks twinzrule. I also have twins but they are 3. My husband and I both work full time and the girls are at a full time church pre school. So during the week while I am recovering they will be at school. I am glad to hear the pain wasn't near the c section. Thanks again.
