    Personal Trainer?

    Think long term, not short term. "Numbers" are short term. I am 16 months or so post op. My weight hasn't changed much in the last 6 months or so, but I have defintely dropped body fat. That has to translate in to an increase in muscle. I train regularly, hard. So defintely keep the big picture in mind and not just some numbers on the scale.

    Personal Trainer?

    i use a personal trainer once a week, wish i had the money to do more than that. i am 16 months post op, below my goal weight and training for an ironman triathlon, so it was important to me to get at least 1 PT workout in a week. go for it, they are everywhere, some are better than others. mine came highly recommended and really knows his stuff. he designs my workouts around endurance sports for me.
  3. I can very much relate. I had very similar experiences with "friends" trying to talk me out of it, it's the easy way, blah blah blah. I heard it all. What I can tell you now being 16 months or so post op is this. Screw them. I have fallen in love with endurance sports, triathlon, running, marathon training, i have a brand new circle of friends who are so supportive and love hanging out with them. Another thing I've figured out is that alot of my old friends don't want to see me succeed. They want me to fail, for some reason. I'm guessing it's so they don't have to look at themselves. Screw them, why was I ever friends with some of these losers in the first place?

    yoga

    And let me add, I'm a huge yoga fan. I do it twice a week. Sent from my SM-N920V using the BariatricPal App

    yoga

    That would be a question for your Dr to answer. Twisting and stretching before you're ready could have some serious consequences. Sent from my SM-N920V using the BariatricPal App

    Weight loss vs inches lost

    Very good idea. Wish I had done that. I had the sleeve in October of 2015. For about 8 months now, I've stayed around 165, but my pants size has continued to get smaller. Would've been nice to have seen the numbers as well. Sent from my SM-T580 using the BariatricPal App

    Almost 4 weeks post op

    Keep at it. I lost alot of strength and endurance after surgery, but I'm now healthier and stronger than any point in my life. You'll get it back. Sent from my SM-T580 using the BariatricPal App

    Anyone over 60 years?

    I am currently sitting in my mother's room, post op day 2 for gastric sleeve. She is 70. She is following my lead, I had the sleeve done a year ago. Sent from my SM-N920V using the BariatricPal App
  13. I'm not a DS patient, but for this type question, doesn't really matter which surgery we've had. I just did my 5th triathlon of the year and have a bigger one next weekend. I couldn't even run an entire 5k this spring without walking, now planning on doing a couple half marathons this fall. I'm still a month away from being 1 year post op! My advice, exercise hard and exercise often! Makes all the difference in the world! Sent from my SM-N920V using the BariatricPal App
  14. My bariatric nutritionist has been a big help for me adjusting my calorie and macro goals. Sent from my SM-N920V using the BariatricPal App
  15. Following.....I am a triathloner, not sure what I'll be come winter, but that's beside the point. I'm always trying to tweak things as well. I'm at 2,000 k a day and my goal is 150 grams of Protein. Sent from my SM-N920V using the BariatricPal App
