    Rudeness probably won't make you a lot of friends. We are all in the same boat and these threads are known to vary widely. A polite response will get you a lot farther than ALL OF THIS internet yelling.
    Maybe just appreciate that people are concerned over your well being.

    I went through a huge stall where I lost and gained the same two pounds. I finally broke it two days ago!!! I think my trick was upping my calories to around 1000. I work out pretty vigorously 5-6 times a week and my NUT said to try it and it worked!!!!

    All calories should be counted. No matter where they come from. Not all Protein Drinks are great choices so looking for one that has a better Protein to calorie ratio is important.

    Today I bought yoga pants and a t shirt XL down from a tight size 22- probably should have been wearing a 24! I am so excited to get something that wasn't a plus size... Don't think I am out of the women's section yet, as the yoga pants are stretchy... But I'm getting closer

    Kiap82 got a reaction from Shear Diva in What About Your Friends?   
    I have one friend who is constantly on a diet. She is about 40 pounds overweight and very self conscious about it. She was very supportive of my decision to have surgery and even started her own diet at the same time. What I have started to notice though is that she gets really irritated when I talk about how many pounds I've lost. She's on MFP so she can see it there but the other day she snapped at me. I mentioned that I thought it was weird that all of my pant were getting longer. And she just said that not everyone knows what that's like because not everyone loses 5 pounds a week. First of all I just had SURGERY and second of all I had 170 pounds to lose, not 40. So there are some pretty big differences in our journeys. I decided that I just couldn't talk about it or be happy about it any more while around her. It makes me sad. But I'm moving out of state in a couple weeks and back to a place where I have more friends, who couldn't be happier for me. Maybe at a distance she will be less jealous.

    I think that I would pass out if I only ate that much and my surgery was the day after yours. I would definitely get a second opinion. I'm at 800 calories the days I don't work out and 1000 the days I do. If I work out and don't eat any carbs I get lightheaded and have massive headaches after. I try to stay around 40 carbs, 80 Protein and 40 fat. I hit one stall for a week but now that I've upped the calories (was doing 700 a day) I have started to lose again.

    Private message me your email address. I have my manual on my computer. Not saying it's better than the rest but maybe you could use it as a reasonable tool to help you decide what is best for you. My NUT also does phone consultations. I live in Denver and they are in Dallas, where I had my surgery and LOTS of surgeries are done. They are independent from my surgeon and specialize in post bariatric surgery patients. Let me know if you want their info.

    Didn't make my goal but still had a good loss. Started at 294.7 and end at 274.3. The goal was 269 but since it was my first challenge I think I over shot it a little. Oh well, on to the next challenge!

    I am 8 weeks out and 31 years old. I couldn't be happier about the decision to have this surgery. I debated it for 2 years since I am cash pay but it's been worth every penny. HW 320, SW 313, CW 275. I have been over weight my whole life and am finally going to be able to live life to the fullest!!!
    My doc released me to all foods at 6 weeks and I have had no problems. I work out 5 days a week, eat 900-1000 calories a day with 80+ Grams of Protein. Had one stall that lasted a week at seven weeks. Only thing I have trouble with is getting my Water. But I do the best I can.
    I wish I had done this when I was 21 instead of 31.

    I am EXACTLY where you are, but just 10lbs behind. SW 313 CW 277. scale hasn't moved in over a week. I'm so frustrated too. I thought maybe it was cause I am working out but I don't want to stop doing that. I'm getting my 80 grams of Protein and 64oz of Water. I'm 31 and been overweight my whole life. Maybe my body doesn't want to be thin?!
    What are you doing for Protein, Water, and exercise? Maybe we can figure this out together!

    Just remember. This will be the last 2 weeks for a very long time that you will feel like you want to eat more. For the next several months you'll be trying to figure out how to get enough in. I'm 8 weeks out and struggle to get enough calories in daily. A total switch from pre-op where I thought I was going to die from hunger.
