    Hi everyone! What a year!!! Sorry I haven't posted in a while! I was on vacation at my 1 year from surgery & when I reached my goal! Yes I reached my goal while on vacation!!! First time I didn't gain wait while on vacation!! Hooray!!! I went for my 1 year check up a couple of weeks ago. 80lb loss! All of my blood work came back good!!!! Except kidney, I need to drink more water ! Still struggle with it! Although my doctor said I could drink Water right up to my meal, I don't have to wait 30 minutes before I eat. I still have to & will always have to not drink during meals or 30 minutes after! It flushes the food through too fast to get the nutrients you need. I can eat anything, except not too much sugar! I still have to chew my food, especially meat really well or I get that slightly stuck feeling or feel too full too soon! Sending you all hugs for helping me get through this! Couldn't have done it with out you all!! Let us know how you are doing! Your friend Terri!

    @@GBLady41 So glad to hear from you!!!! Finally you get to start your journey! It has been much easier for me than I had ever dreamed! Surgery wasn't near as bad as thought! The first couple of weeks, hard because of just sipping & trying to get your fluids down. But I'm now 13 months out, reached my goal of 150, & feel better than ever! Best decision I ever made! Wishing you the best of luck & a lot of it is attitude! Be positive & do everything the dr. tells you to do because it does work & you will have the best results following their direction!!

    @@anewme2015 I don't eat near 1200, probably closer to 900-1000. My loss is around a 1/2 lb a week, depending on how much walking I do if any. I don't eat much at a time like I use too. I try to quit as soon as I feel slightly full. I notice I snack more than I use to. I try to only snack healthy, but when the company is here I get into their snacks. Not good. I bought some healthy choice fudge bars 80cal, & eat one a day, which seems to satisfy my sweet tooth. Normal, not sure yet.

    @@jjod Congratulations on meeting your goal!!! You are awesome!! what a journey!!! Love the before & after picture, you look great!!! Logging the food is something I probably should do, I have been just counting protein while I'm still loosing, (slowly but still getting there!) I think when I reach maint. I will do as your doing! Great idea!! I had the gastric bypass & so glad I had it! both surgeries I believe are life savors!

    @@anewme2015 Good Job! You are doing great! I love that your doing the combat classes & weight lifting & love it! I think that is the key, to find something in fitness that you love!!! The adkins diet I think is one of the best ones out there for us! My husband does this & is pretty close to how I eat so it works. The hard part is when we have company to stay on our regular routine. They bring chips etc. & I think I have to serve my tried & true recipes that are full of carbs etc. We live at the lake so have lots of company during the summer. Carbs are my enemy. As I right this I have a breakfast casserole ready to go full of carbs for our company & I know I will have a little. I hope to see more updates too! It is encouraging for me!! Keep up the good work!

    Update : I'm at 165 now at 8 months, well I guess now its closer to nine July 8th. 15 lb. more to go to reach my 150 goal which is where I want to be! I'm not exercising like I should. I did purchase & wearing 10 lb. ankle weights I purchased from Walmart online (5 lb. each leg) that I put on most days to walk around the house or do some leg lifts. Need to walk to get the last 15 off. I eat just about everything, I do stay away from sugar. I still only eat around a cup to cup &1/2 of food at a time. Still very glad I did it. Scares are almost gone. My arms look horrible & inner thighs. Feel great with more energy than ever!! Hope everyone is doing well!! Have a wonderful 4th of July!!!! Terri

    I have people telling me all the time now when I tell them I have 20 more lbs to go, oh no you will look too thin! I don't think at 5'5" 150 (in 20 less lbs. 170 now) I will be too thin. Maybe they are trying to compliment me & saying I look great now but it does make you wonder. I'm not trying to be 125 like was in high school, or 135 at 40. I'm 60 now & don't mind keeping a little weight on. So 150-155 I think I will be fine.

    @@anewme2015 I know what you mean, snacking seems to feel better on my stomach than meats & meals which I don't seem to be able to eat much of, always go back to soft foods for me, which may or may not be the best. Greek yogurt is a staple as cottage cheese along with my daily protein shake with coffee. I also eat a lot of chili & soups. Frozen 80 cal fudge bars I love! The trouble I have is we have a lot of company since we live on the lake & I'm always buying chips etc. for them! Need to stop, because what ever is left over when they leave if they don't take it, I munch on!!!! I don't like to waste sadly, the clean your plate & all the starving kids syndrome i still struggle with. Our appetites are coming back & the more you eat of carbs, sugar etc. we will want! Still a struggle!!!!! @@kaitlynm Your weight loss has been really good!!! I think your right about the protein, its so hard to get enough! I forget to use the protein powders in stuff & I have the unflavored! I guess I need to set it out where I can see it to remind myself!!!

    Hi Ron, Your weight loss is fantastic!!!! Mine has stalled a little the last 2 months but I'm still loosing. I too have problems with headaches, mostly coming from my neck. I have noticed if I get dehydrated which I can tell when I use the bathroom I seem to have more of them. I hope the doctor finds out what is going on, headaches are miserable!

    Well I went to my 6 month check up today. 177 yea. They go buy % of what you have lost.. They said they liked their patients to be at 50% at 6 months of their weight loss since surgery. I'm at 65% so they were very pleased with my progress. I don't go back until its a year. They said I should have no problem getting to my goal of 150 by then, especially if I would get back to my walking, I told them I had been slacking off! Anyway hope you all have good reports at your 6 month!
