    Kiap82 got a reaction from CindyGirl in December 2013 Sleevers Come In!   
    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!!!!

    Kiap82 got a reaction from Kookichu in Marijuana   
    I live in Denver and do use mj recreationally. I waited for several weeks after surgery but my doctor and nut said it was fine.
    I DO get the munchies and am sad about that.
    It DOES settle my stomach when I'm nauseous.
    It has A LOT less calories than alcohol.
    So while I'm sure everyone is different, I won't be using mj regularly anymore after I move out of state next month. Not to say I won't occasionally partake, but the munchies are enough to deter me from being a regular user. Plus, it's illegal in Texas.

    I am also signed up for a color run. Mine is in Riverside, CA in three weeks!! I'll only be 11 weeks out from surgery but have been making pretty good progress with endurance and strength. I plan on power walking it as I'm still to heavy to actually run but I am excited none the less. Since it is out of state it will also be my first time on a plane since surgery and I'm hoping I won't have to use the extender for the first time in years!!!

    I work as a patient counselor and surgery scheduler for a large group of LASIK and cataract surgeons. I used to manage an entire practice but took a step back after surgery to spend more time on me. Best decision I ever made.

    Kiap82 reacted to cubbies76 in To tell or not to tell...   
    I told friends, family and coworkers. I didn't and don't keep it a secret. It was no secret I was morbidly obese, even if I didn't see myself that way. I also didn't want to lie to anyone when the questions about how I'm losing this much weight started coming in. Now, I don't tell my clients because at some point, I'm tired of talking about it as much as I have been and I don't see them often enough for it to matter.
    I got a wide range of support when I told people. Most are really supportive, some don't care, etc. I had one person tell me in a roundabout way that he thought I would fail because I wasn't committed. But whatever, my success isn't dependent on him. I'm down 114 pounds in about 4 months so he can EAD.

    I cook up a pound of Jennie O ground turkey sausage and use it through the week. A slice of low fat cheddar cheese mixed in the meat then microwave for 45 seconds. Add a dollop of light sour cream and some salsa. Delicious in two minutes.

    Kiap82 got a reaction from nancy264 in Looking for advice   
    I believe I have met my first stall. I'm 7 weeks out and down 35 pounds from SW of 313 on 12/17. I track my weight daily and have seen sort of a down hill roller coast over the last month and a half. Lose two, gain one, no gain, lose two, etc. But I have now been stuck with in a pound of 277 for 10 days.
    I work out 4 times a week. Two with a trainer and two cardio days in my own. I also walk about 4 miles a week and trying to increase that.
    My calories are around 875 a day and I'm getting at least 80 grams if Protein and usually less than 30 grams of carbs.
    Is there something I'm missing? I know these stalls happen but was hoping in some advice to jump start the weight loss again.

    At my initial surgery consult I was wearing a 34/36 (yes that is a real size) or 6X - maybe a 5X on a "good" day. I'm now in a size 16 bottom and an XL top. Got a ways to go but so far, so good!

    Kiap82 got a reaction from ProudGrammy in Relationships after the sleeve. Are you happy and in it to win it? Are you ready to leave/divorce your tormentor?   
    I was dating someone I had know for eight years but only dated in and off casually. As my sleeve date approached we became closer. He was really there for me making me feel good about my decision and promising to purée food for me after.
    I flew out of state for my surgery and when I got back everything changed. He didn't want to talk as much, he never wanted to see me, and was totally distant. Here I was days out from major surgery and it's like I had the plague.
    In the end he ended up picking a huge fight with me for no reason and I said goodbye. I have settled for sooooo long and it's time to start looking for someone who will be there no matter what.
