    December Surgery Thread - we rock!

    I'm one year out and down 113 pounds! This was the fastest year of my life! I am so happy that I finally made the decision to have surgery. Best decision I ever made! I still have a little ways to go but I am so pleased with my progress.

    Why not talk to your NUT? Are you getting in all you Protein and Water? Are you exercising? Your issue may/or may not be the number of calories you are eating. If it is, the solution may actually be to eat more and not less. Why not make an appointment with your NUT? Embrace the Stall! I called her today actually! ☺️ thank you for your advise! Some great ideas there thank u!

    I have been eating around 1100 calories a day maybe i should lessen it for a while.

    I am 9 months out and down 102 pounds since surgery. I am very happy with my progress so far but I have been at a stall for the past month. I am following the calories that my doctor set for me and I am exercising regularly. I'm not sure why I am at a stall. I need to find a way to get the loss going again!

    Before and after

    Another recent before and after. We all need to do this! It is amazing! You look fantastic!! Amazing transformation!
  12. I am 8 months post op. I am down 99.5 pounds. That number doesn't even seem real. This journey is so amazing. We are the only ones who will ever understand the highs, lows, and complete life changing situations that come with weight loss surgery. Some days are great, some days are not. Whenever I have a bad day I get on this site and read everyone's success and tips. I also look back at old pictures to see how far I have come. I encourage everyone to do the same. Make some before and after collages. You will feel amazing in no time! The before pic is two months before surgery. The after is about 7 months post op.
