    I'm almost at 11 months & since I have only lost 2lbs this last month, It is pretty clear I won't reach goal at 1 year.
    My exercise physiologist wants me to be between 160-165 @ 1 year. My appt is on 10/17 & I weigh 173. Oh well, I'm just going to keep trying, because the alternative is not an option.
    By the way, my personal goal is 135-140 so I have a ways to go but I refuse to be discouraged. I have pity parties but they end early.
    I remember where I was last year at this time & it helps me to keep it all in perspective. Stay focused my friend and know you are not in this battle alone.

    It's hard for me to believe I thought I was fine at 260lbs. I would trick myself to accept that I was a big girl and that I just needed to love myself. That only worked for about an hour. I was so unhappy now although I lost almost 60lbs I feel happier but my mind still plays tricks on me. I also look back at pictures and just sit in shock! I was watching a family friend who is really heavy eat the other day and just thought wow that looks really ugly(over eating) I hope nobody thinks I'm fat shaming I'm just saying when it's you, you never think of it looking bad but when you see it your just shocked.

    You might want to try the ring. U don't have to remember to take it daily and I lost weight on it even before my surgery. Def wld be careful with pills as pp said. I ran out of my ring prescription and we used condoms till I Cld get in to Dr. One fell off and I took the morning after pill next day. I was allergic to it. Covered in hives and swollen face and neck. Anyhow, it didn't work lol. I'm happy to be having another baby but really was trying to wait a year. U will b super fertile. I hope the pills work but consider the ring. It sits where it needs to and delivers the meds and your fluctuating weight and hormones are less likely to interfere. Hopefully.

    Im 10 months post op and i have 22lbs to go. I honestly dont see me reaching it in a year. It took me one month to loose 2lbs. I lost 40lbs my first week post op and after that the other 20lbs were hard to loose and took longer.

    I exercise 3-4 times a week. Not sure what to do. I cut back on my carb intake and lowered my cheese intake (i love cheese) im trying on my Water (i fail on days im off or when im crazy busy at work)
    I do (most days) 1 shake a day and get my other Protein through food.
    I have 89lbs to loose in total and I watch everyone elses journey and people with same stats and they are closer to goal then me. I know everyones different but im nowhere where i want to be.
    I dont need tough love i just need a hug.

    I recently have hit my goal and am at a little over 7 months. I still have some work to put in exercise wise though. Its not a race and each person gets there in their own time. You are doing great and I know its hard but try to be patient with your body. You will get there!

    Took me 20 months. Next question for me is how long will it take me to lose the 15 I gained back. I think a looooooong time.

    Had my 3 mo check up yesterday and we talked about the "honeymoon period". My PA says that she's convinced that the end of the HM is when we've strayed far enough away from our postop eating for things to slow or stop. She's convinced that revisiting Protein first, vegs, Water will start things up again.

    I wouldn't worry about the year mark. You are doing great. Think of all the changes you've made in 10 months. Maybe change up your workout routine and workout 6 days a week but make it a new activity or hobby? I just tried two new things...paddle boarding and Barre. I found coupons on living social and groupon. I also joined Let's Meet so I could find some people to go hiking with. It's free and fun not like a workout that your dreading. Good job cutting down on the carbs.
    You Got This!!!

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. I am 14 months post op and still not at goal. I have 25 more pounds to go. At this rate, don't see me reaching it anytime soon. If this helps any: We started at the same place and you already weigh 10 pounds less than me at only 10 months. I would say you are doing pretty good so don't worry.
    I will go somewhere and sulk now.

    I did not reach my goal in a year. It took 14 months, and at nearly 3 years out, I still think I can lose another 10. It does get harder, the closer you get to goal. However, your sleeve does not expire. If anyone, anywhere could really identify the mystery behind obesity and weight loss (beyond calories in/calories out, which is part of it) they would win a prize. So, we just have to go with "we are unique" and just do your best to figure out what works for you. Just know you can do this.
