    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.

    Frustrated!

    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!

    Frustrated!

    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!

    Labor Day Challenge!

  7. 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.

    That was total since the day of surgery. Total since pre op diet is about 120.
  12. I decided to do a before and after because even though I knew I had lost weight, I just couldn't see it. These pics were taken exactly a year apart. The pic on the right is me at about 351. The left is me now 4 months post op and down 78 pounds. I'm glad that I kept that dress! Everyone should take lots of pictures! After looking at this I finally see it!

    What's your "weight loss pet peeve?"

    One pet peeve of mine is when co workers say "you just keep losing, I hate you" I know it's not really mean spirited but seriously do they even know what I had to do to be able to lose weight? I also like when people say they are losing the "hard" Way. I just say the way I'm losing is the same as you. I still have to exercise and count calories. The only difference is I had major surgery and sometimes throw up What I eat. Shuts them right up! Lol

    Several NSVs in one day!

    This post made me so happy because I can relate! I heard universal studios coasters are very roomy. I was super nervous going there a few weeks ago. Happily I fit on every ride easily! I would have never fit a year ago!
  21. Sometimes I miss bread lol. Not worth it though. Even a bite feels like I ate a brick!
  22. I just wondered how all the December sleevers were doing!
