  1. This is a closed/secret group for everyone who is going to have bypass surgery in February 2016! We would LOVE to have you join in wit us! Just go to Facebook and search my name LaNae Davis Petersen, send me a friend request. I can then send you an invite to secret page and then I'll remove you back off my friends list It's meant to be a positive group who we can all be going through the same things at the same tim on this journey! The goals will be to provide support, bounce questions off each other, have somewhere safe to share on the days that aren't so great, and share our victories on this journey! MOST importantly it's all confidential, unless you are in this group people can't see the group, who's in it or what the posts are. I'm confused, how in the world did a post from 2003 pop up on this board I started last year?
  2. Amazing progress.... That 4 month mark is exactly the same time I noticed the slowdown.. I would go a week or two after that and lose nothing, but then all of a sudden 10lbs gone in a week. So sounds like you are exactly on track. Us bigger guys drop major poundage, quick!! Pretty soon they will be calling ya skinny and I hope you aren't planning on losing anymore weight lol.. It can be somewhat annoying, as I'm like how do you know what my body should do weight wise.. Are you able to take the constant compliments well? That was a tough one at first for me, as I felt it was constantly pointing out my failure to myself.. But now I've learned how to except it.. But for me, I had to come up with my response, and rehearse it, so I had something to say back.. It helped me focus on the compliment and then I moved on to next subject lol.. I wish you continued success.. I'm assuming you are from Michigan? I'm originally from Grand Rapids. Most of my family still there..
  3. Thank you for the compliment!!! I hope you are having the same success!!! When and what type of surgery did you have? If to personal you obviously don't have to answer... Enjoy your weekend.. Keep up the good work...
  4. Any updates? I had the sleeve and in 7 months I've lost 142 lbs. So I would like to compare that to your bypass. I've head that you lose more with bypass. Congrats!Congratulations on your success!!! Sorry, I own a hair salon, so from October to beginning of January, life is crazy crazy busy. So I've not been on here in awhile... I'm down 150lbs in 7 months.. Weight loss has slowed way down, but I'm not complaining.. I'm finally in the 100's now, 198 as of yesterday.. I wish you continued success.. ImageUploadedByBariatricPal1454071356.487491.jpg Congrats! Those pictures are awesome. My weight loss slowed and stopped, mainly because I got addicted to nuts and Peanut Butter. However, I'm back on track and loosing 1-2 lbs a day now. Lost 156 lbs in less than 9 months and should be in my 100s in a few weeks. I'm crossing my fingers I will be at goal by my 1 year anniversary. Keep us updated! What amazing progress, keep up the good work!!!! Yeah those nuts will get ya lol... Same happened to me!!!! I'm not even obsessing about a goal weight anymore. I'm so close to what I thought I wanted, but am very happy with where I'm at now. I think my goal weight might be a little to thin for my frame. Words I never thought I'd say lol. I'll just have to go with the flow... Keep up the good work and definitely post pictures soon.. That's if you wanna of course lol

  9. Hey May Peeps ???? just stopping by to show a picture of me the day I hit 199lbs (which was the other day)... Almost 9 months ago, I would have never believed it would have happened so fast... I hope you all are having as much success.
  10. It's been forever since I've been on myself... So sorry you had those problems.. So glad to see such wonderful progress..
  11. I've had several stalls on my 4 month journey.. One was a two weeker ???? I've noticed if I'm in a stall, upping my calories has made a difference.. Sometimes of course lol
  12. @@nancynew, I can relate to your struggle, for sure. i think around the 14th week i had a stall. It totally freaked me out, as you have related. I increased my workouts in panic. The next week I had a double loss. In hindsite I truly doubt that the loss was workout related, and more a stage my body was going through. @@Salonboi, Jaysen, you are doing so fantastic! 111lbs, WOW! Congrats on your continued hardwork paying off. As for me, I am down into the "overweight bmi's" can't believe I'm no longer obese? Im the smallest Ive been in years, even wearing a size 10. Seems crazy. But, I have been truly suffering in agony and pain for about 12 hours now. I think the root cause is my own stupidity, in eating 3/4 of an orange yesterday. I just can't think what else would cause this. It was the only thing different in my food plan yesterday. and let me tell you, I won't be making that mistake again! Praying for relief, soon. Thank you ❤️ it's definitely been a journey!!! I hope you are feeling better now!!! I've had a few moments like that, and man alive it sucks!!!! Congratulations on your loss!! Sounds like you are doing an amazing job as well!!! Glad to hear a progress report!!
