  1. hey all!! I was sleeved on 9/17 I am now unrestricted and I am starting to work out now. I bought a vivofit to keep me active and I have to say it is working like a charm! I love it...I am looking for others who may use the vivofit as well so we can connect and help motivate each other.... My vivofit name is rac8610 if you care to add me!!!

  3. Hello all, My name is Rachael and I was sleeved on 9/17. I am about 9 weeks out and I am 42 years old. I am really looking forward to rocking my 40's because my 30's were horrible....lol I am finding that I am losing pretty slowly but I am sure that is because I am just really not as active as I should be...but I am working on that! I bought myself a vivofit and I am pushing myself to hit the goals it sets for me every day!

    Help me!

    This happens to a lot of people specially when they lose very quickly because you have not had time to adjust and learn from old mistakes. You can do the 5daypouchtest to get you back on track www.5daypouchtest.com and then you need to get really mentally in tune and listen to your body. don't eat when you are not hungry and do not wait until you are full to stop...do not eat fatty junk foods..just tell yourself I don't eat that ...don't say I cant eat that....denying yourself will just make you want it more...just be resolved and say, I do NOT eat that .... Drink your Water, and I think after the 5 day pouch test you will be back to the basics and you will have found your groove again. You went though too much to let this happen....Dont wait to start, start now right this minute right this second regardless of what you already ate today. Good luck and I hope you find it in yourself to want to finish the game.

    No more Chat Rooms ?

    I have met some very wonderful people here in the chat room and it had some great busy days and not so busy days...I myself work during the day so I would stay logged in for long periods of time and I saw a lot of in and out traffic.... I would really like to have this chat room back, it is what set this site apart from other weight loss sites....no one else has an interactive live chat room.... BRING IT BACK!!!

    Valentine Days Challange

    Monday I am up today but that was to be expected with the new work outs and monthly visitor...sad to say this is my first gain since my surgery and I expect it to be temporary. 341 OUCH!
  14. I cant believe its been almost 4 months since my sleeve surgery on 9/17!!!! I feel fantastic and I just am settling into my new life. Lots of changes... I have not yet tried to eat bread or Pasta and I am not sure when I will even attempt it. I have had a few bites of corn tortilla and corn chips. I have tried some potato chips...the magic number is 10 chips. I have not eaten anything crazy, but I have tried to eat baked french fries, but usually the magic number is 5.... I eat a lot of greek yogurt...my fav is dannon light and fit..its only 7 or less grams of sugar and 12 plus grams of protein. I like baked chicken and cottage cheese and I try to drink one Protein shake with spinach and blueberries a day. I have been hitting my Protein goal of 105 grams almost daily and only fall short on the weekend. its ironic the weekends used to be when I would gain weight for he week and now I almost all but forget to eat! I am feeling much more energetic now and I love to try on my clothes that never fit before. I would like to see some more weight loss and I know I need to work on working out. For the most part, I am feeling GREAT!!!!

    Hello all, My name is Rachael and I had the sleeve surgery in portland, or on 9/17 I first talked about my weight with my PCP in June weighing in at 428 lbs...she got me in touch with OWLS Dr Emma Patterson who I met in July and weighed 403...she asked me to lose 20 lbs and so on my date of surgery I was exactly 383!!!! I am 9 weeks out now and I am 349 lbs and doing very well...I have so much to lose and I feel like I am just losing so slowly. It is probably because I just could not get myself to move much but I got myself a vivofit and I feel like I am really pushing it and getting better each day!
  24. I am 9 weeks out and feeling like I am getting the hang of this now...I do still often eat too fast and I am whiplashed back a step or two! But I am working on that!

      Honestly every day is a work in progress. I still have to tell myself to slow down and I'm 6 and a half months out. If I eat too fast I get nauseated!
