  1. i was sleeved 12/14/15. i started pre op at 292. Surgery 277. Lowest I got was 204 and bounce between 207 and 210 now. I have lost and gained the same 5 pounds for the last 5 months. I have to go into my surgeons office on Dec 13th weighing the same i did at 6 months post op. I feel so depressed about it. I am obsessed with my weight. It consumes my every thought. I walk between 25 and 30 miles a week. tracked by my microsoft band 2. i use MFP. Before surgery when i lost weight i had gone down to 201 and could never get below 200. Now after VSg I thought for sure I would've been there already. TLDR: I lost great the first 6 months. Havent lost any since. Depressed.

  3. i had surgery 12/14/15. surgery day i was 277. i lost 20 pounds in 2 weeks after. then i hit a 2 week stall of absolutely not even a pound loss. total now since surgery i have lost 32 pounds. I am extremely disappointed with the amount of stalls i am having. i will go weeks without a loss.
  4. im 8 weeks out. i have one every morning for breakfast. i open it at 7 am when i get to work. im usually finished at 9. 11 ounce premier
  5. sleeved 12/14/15. pre op diet began at 292. surgery day 277. today 245. i feel as if i am losing slow because of the amount of stalls ive had. i lost 20 the first two weeks. then stalled for 2 weeks. then pretty much the entire time since. with a few days of a loss in between. its frustrating to say the least.
  6. 2 MONTHS OUT. SO FAR NOTHING. ;( i dont know how i feel about that. it seems i am able to eat anything.

    im in a constant stall it seems. from week 2 to 4 i didnt lose any. then i lost 4 more pounds and now havent lost again in half a week or so. i know thats not an official stall (this time) but it feels like it. How is everyone doing with going potty? i really never have the urge to go so once a week I am working with a laxative or stool softener of some sort to get things moving. that kinda sucks and I feel isnt helping with the weight not coming off. I am eating between 600/800 calories a day. i track everything that goes into my mouth. Protein protein protein. very low carbs. not getting in enough Water and maybe that might be the culprit as far as not losing more and not going more.
  10. Congrats! I wish the winner all the best.

    Stomach pain

    i had those after surgery for at least a week. i thought they were spasms. they would last maybe 15 seconds. it went away though after a week or so.
  16. you started at 173 and your goal is 150. something just aint right. eat all the peanuts and popcorn you want.

    December 14th Sleevers

    Had my 2 week post up today. Doc said im ahead of the curve doing better than they expected. I still have 2 weeks left of full liquids. It's funny im so hungry when i see pizza or burgers or real food, but when it comes to my meals, my yogurts and stuff im just not hungry. Lol swelling has definitely gone down, doing better with gent fluids in. Still horrible at protein though. I mean less than 20 grans a day. I just can't do any more shakes or powders. I have to get better with it i know. Im going back to work tomorrow. Incisions healing nicely. No complications, nausea or anything like that. But expecting to experience that once i start real food or mushies. I really want eggs and cheese and avocados. Lol

    I'm on full liquid until 1 12. My surgeon has us go 4 weeks. Liquid, i dont get much at a time. Not because im too full, but because im scared of feeling what too full would feel life. However tonight i went and got egg drop soup. At least 10 ounces id say. I ate it all except the onions and carrots in about an hour. It was so good i couldn't so eating. My stomach never hurt once so then i got freaked out like wth did i do. Only thing is i am so thirsty now because of the sodium in it. And can't drink for another 20 mins at least. I just can't believe i ate all the soup.

    Insomnia after Sleeve?

    Only problem i have is waking up very early and unable to go back to sleep because i can't really sleep on my back. Im only 9 days post.

    One Week Out!

    That's my surgeons rules. Then one week late i go soft and by 1 26 i should be ready to try more solid food. However in my last if full bariatric liquids is jello, pudding thinned cream of wheat, strained soup and yogurt. The cream of wheat even strAINED seems like pureed to be. Haven't tried the yogurt yet. And straining creamed souolp, i did it once, way too much work i felt. But yesterday i had real chicken broth from crock pot chicken and that was awesome.

    I had lots of broth today! Real broth from a crock pot chicken. Made all the difference in the world as far as getting liquids in. I've been having troubles in that dept. Theres one thing i hate. Taking that Damn ursodal or whatever for gallstones. I open the capsule, the powder goes everywhere and i haven't found anything i can take it with that makes life easy.

    One Week Out!

    Sleeved on the 14th as well. Not doing good with fluid intake. I do better with jello and pudding. Im on full liquids until jan 12th. Finally can move around without feeling like im ripping apart. And now im just super bored at home. Im not sleeping well on my back either. Every morning i try my side but im just not ready yet either, it feels like its pulling and that my stomach is being squished in there. But ill keep trying.
