    I had VSG June 15, 2015
    HW: 357 pounds/size 24
    Goal: 185 Pounds
    CURRENTLY: 140 Pounds/Size 2
    I couldn’t be happier, you’d never know I used to weigh more than double my current weight. I reached my goal in January of 2017, had a Tummy Tuck April of 2017, and continued to lose weight after for some reason. 13 pounds of skin removed.

  10. Congrats!

    I am on my pre-op diet and I have done some cheating. However, mines seem mild in comparison. Over the past 8 days, I have eaten some grapes (about 10), a serving of snack Factory Pretzel Crisps (I checked the label and gave myself exactly 1 serving) I put half a banana in my Protein smoothie. I wasn't sure if this is actually cheating or not because bananas weren't on my list of excluded or included fruits I can use for shakes and smoothies. I ate Taco Bell plain Refried Beans when I was out holiday shopping. Ate about 3 sporks of that. My big fail was Sunday. I made a salad for my husband's dinner. Just a plain old iceberg lettuce salad mix with tomatoes, cucumbers, a small amount of bacon bits, cheese, 1/4 a piece of baked crispy chicken, and (yes I counted) croutons with light vinaigrette dressing. Before I know I was huddled in the corner like Smeagal devouring about a cup of the salad! LOL my husband caught me and tried to take it away, but I would not let go of MY PRECIOUS! LOL

    Hey guys,
    I haven't checked in for while. I hope everyone's doing well. I know I am doing great. I am sticking with the modified Keto and exercise routine. The scale hasn't moved much in the past six week--only down about 5 or 6 pound. However, during that time I lost: 1.5% of my body fat (down to 16.5%); 1.5 inches off my waist; inch off my chest (down to 42 from a 50) and a quarter inch off my neck (down to 16.5" from 18.5" in the fall). My pants size is now a 32, down from a 44 this past summer. I have gone from wearing XXL shirts to M slim fit shirts (sometimes large slim depending on the brand). At this point, I am not really sure how much more weight I am going to be losing. I am ok where I am. Aside from the number on the scale, all of my aesthetic goals have been met (or are very close to being met).
    More importantly, I just had my 3 month follow up last week. My blood work looks great. My triglycerides are down to a 54 (they were over 450 last summer). My good cholesterol is up three fold to 96. My A1C's have dropped from a 6.3 (with 1000mg of MetFormin and 1.8mg of Victoza) in November to a 5.1 with no medications. As of now, all my nutrional numbers look good and are well within normal ranges, including Vitamin D, B12, B6, Calcium, Iron etc. Of course, nutritional deficits can take a while to show up in blood work, so we'll see how they look again in three months.
    So, far the only downside is that my once very thick hair is thinning a bit. Not loving that, but no one can really tell yet except me (hope it stays that way). I am taking my Biotin, but not sure how much it really helps (can't hurt though). I would still trade lush hair for a slim body any day.
    Anyway, here's a picture from this past weekend (3/23/19):

    He guys! I haven't checked up with everyone in a while. I hope you're all doing well. I see there have been quite a few posts on the forum about stalls, so I thought I would share my numbers for February. On February 1, I weighed in at 204.1 (which is down from 234 on the day of surgery (12/17/18) and 243 on the day I started my pre-op (12/3/18)). This morning, I weighed in at 197.4 (although I have been as low as 195.5 this week). So, for this month I am down 7.5 pounds--almost all of that weight came off before 2/13. I have only lost about a 1 pound in the past 3 weeks. Now, that looks like a stall, but I doubt it.
    I guess the time I have been spending at the gym (getting there between 4:30 and 5am and leaving around 7:30am 6 days a week) is having the biggest impact on this journey. It's definitely slowing the appearance of weight loss on the scale, but it's changing everything else for the positive. I think I have gained at least 10 pounds of muscle since mid-January. As lousy as I am at assessing my own progress and appearance, even I can feel (maybe see) the difference in my body tone. I am feeling pretty great right now and while I am still 25 pounds away from my goal weight, I am happy where I am! Everything after this is gravy!
    Here are the pictures to show the journey so far:
    These were taken in July and August 2018. I weighed around 250 here, which is about 10 pounds down from my highest measured weight. (I am sure I weighed more than my highest measured weight, but was afraid to get on the scale for a while).
     
    This is me on the day of Surgery (12/17/18). I weighed 234 on the day of surgery. 

    I took this one on January 17 (one month post op). I weighed in at 210.2 that morning.

    I just took these earlier today. I weighed in at 197.2 this morning.

    OMG! I thought that maybe it, but I wasn't sure because the tab was pushed so far down in the box LOL. Well probably trashed those for no reason other than my own paranoia. Thanks for the note, I definitely will keep this in mind going forward.

    73 days post op - no real issues now, but "never trust a fart" early on! 😎

    It's so frustrating! But, you will start losing again... your body is just adjusting! I've had so many stalls and it's driving me nuts... but I'm just trying to be chilled and go with the process. Hope things move soon for you!
  25. Congrats!
