  5. 1 year post op on 28th of last month and I’ve hit my goal weight and feel amazing [emoji171]. How’s everyone else getting on?
  6. Op 28/10/2016 start 240lb current weight 145lb
  7. Hi guys well it’s all most a year on 28th of this month and today I hit my goal, intact 1lb under [emoji1303]. My start weight was 241.5 lb and I am now 146lb and very happy. It’s not been an journey and the 1st few months I was sick A LOT and I did wonder if it would ever stop, now it’s only occasionally maybe 1xper week max. Red meat doesn’t agree with me still and snacks go down to easy! So I am still mindful of what I eat. I do attend a regular slimming club and get weighed every week which helps to keep me on track and very focused. How’s everyone else’s doing? I have my 12 month review in a couple of week but need to reschedule as we are on holiday and this week I bought 3 new swim suit. I do have a small amount of loose skin at top of thighs and tummy but nothing to major. I am very happy in cloths and love buying new things. I really wanted to add pictures but I can’t so if anyone technically minded can help that would be great [emoji1303]
  8. I actually saw the number 10 flash up on my scales this morning [emoji41] so happy. Current weight 10st 13lb ( 153lb )my goal is only 6lb away but may try for a bit more once I hit target. But these last few lb have been very slow! Really wanted to add a picture but for some reason it won't let me. Surgery 28th October 2016 240lb Current weight 153lb lost so far 87lb in just over 9 months x
  9. I was diagnosed with very sever sleep apnoea and was actually the final straw that made me decided to go ahead with surgery. I no longer use the CPAP machine and I am now classes as mild and am going for a review again in 6 months once I hit my goal weight. I am 9 months post op and have lost 84lb. Start weight 240 current weight 156 goal 146 height 5' 5
  10. I couldn't eat eggs but now 9 months out I had scrambled egg the other day and was fine which I am really pleased about as love eggs and great protein food. At this stage I can pretty much eat anything except chips which I know we shouldn't eat but if family have a fish and chip tea I always wanted a taste but each time I was ill so don't bother now.
  11. How did u get pictures to work mine won't post?
  12. 9 months post op nearly and only 10lb to goal and feeling great. Did struggle for about 5 months with vomiting and I was really worried it would never stop but 99% of time now I am fine. I can eat pretty much anything I want just a much smaller amount. Can't wait to reach my goal. Need to up my exercise now as not really done a lot TBH.

  13. Hi I was like you and though it would never end. I didn't over eat but maybe ate a bit fast. Drs didn't seem bothered at all. Now 6 months out and it has finally settled down about 1 month ago. If I forget and eat to fast I do still feel ill but seem to be able to keep it down. Hope it starts to settle for you soon. Xx

    mild sleep apnea - I'm pissed

    I am in the U.K and was diagnosed with very sever SA 97 per h stopped breathing so was started on CPAP this was not related to WLS but it was the reason I decided to have the op, self pay in U.K. Straight after surgery I stopped using the machine due to gas pain etc and haven't gone back on it. Now 6 months post op 71lb down and according to hubby no episodes and snoring much better. Due to go back for repeat sleep study soon so will be interesting to see results. I am definitely in R.E.M. Sleep now as my dreams have come back! Xx
  15. 6 months post op and it seems to have finally stopped. Only been sick once in past month which is a great improvement 🤞

  18. Hi Hun could I ask your stats please out of interest xx
  19. Had my 1st gain this week of 1lb [emoji18] I know why as just not been making great food choices so going back to basics this week and logging all food eaten and cutting out the crap! This is a journey and like other have said it's still hard to change bad habits and being able to eat less is not enough if you still eat crap! Lol.
