    SLOW going...

    OMG! Dont be so hard on yourself! You've lost a ton of weight in a very short time! You will continue to lose, just at a slower pace. Get rid of the fat clothes, you WILL NOT go back so you don't need them. I have found a whole new cheap temporary spring wardrobe at Sams club. Capris and jeans, $15. Eventually hope to buy some quality clothing when I reach goal.

  3. Me too! I only told my husband. Not my adult children, not my close friends. I have some pointers for you. First of all I hate attention about my weight. I work with alot of women, so of course, everyone is weight obsessed. I started getting questions with the first 20 lbs. I tell people the truth about what I am eating..protein first, low carbs (NO RICE, BREAD, POTATOES), NO junk food(chocolate, sweets, chips) and I joined a gym. This part is true. The liquid phase was tricky...I would order the soup and then say my stomach felt "funny" when I couldn't complete it. No one noticed. Now I am asked daily "how much have you lost?". This is where I lie....I admit to half of my weight loss! I have just hit 55lbs and admit to losing 28 since Thanksgiving. If I end up losing 80 or 90 lbs and admit to 40-45 no one will suspect VSG!. So far....my secret is mine. My feeling is, this is my own struggle, I don't need or want anyone else's judgements or negativity. I got myself into this situation, I'll get my self out! Good luck!
  4. You look great! Thanks for sharing such inspiring photos! The struggle is real, but you rock!

    Eating OK is vague. Also, no clue where you are at, where you started and how long your stuck. Most likely, it will pass. Keep on track!

    What Is Your Favorite Healthy Food Discovery?

    I buy bags of frozen edaname with sea salt. It is one of my favorite snacks!
  7. totally normal. I felt obsessed with daily numbers on the scale. It will come off! I am now 2 mos out and down 43lbs from my preop weight. I stalled on day 10 for about a week. It also seems like you are not losing, but if you track your weight daily you start to see pattern. Mine went like this: 12/12 231 12/16 225 12/18 221 12/21 220 12/24 217 12/26 215 1/2 214 1/4 212 1/11 211 1/14 209 1/15 208 1/18 206 1/19 205 1/24 204 1/26 200 2/1 198 2/4 196 2/11 194 2/12 193 2/16 192! The days I didn't list there was no weight loss, so you can see, it starts and stops. Some days I swear I am going to get on the scale and see a 1 or 2 pound loss and it stays the same. Other days, not expecting it, I will lose 2! It averages out to 2-3 lbs per week which is healthy rate of loss. Good luck!

    Voice change?

    Okay, so I am 8 weeks out and thrilled to be 35 lbs down! Tonight my hub told me my voice has changed since the weight loss! Has anyone else had this experience?

    7 months later - 77 lb☑️ 18lb to go

    You look great! Can't wait to have collarbones again!
  10. Could be pre menstrual too.
  11. Me too, it was six days before I went. I did not use any pain meds when I got home, for this reason and I still got painfully constipated. I am now 5 weeks out and still having issues. Not to be gross but stool is getting to hard to pass. Taking senecot as needed, colace and miralax. Slowly getting better(I think). Im peeing alot so I don't feel as though I am dehydrated. I am in the medical profession and I must say most Docs could care less about your constipation so you are left to deal with it on your own. Other then that, I am doing great!! I have even introduced 1 8 oz cup of coffee per day to help with the BM's. New stomach handles that just fine. Good luck to you in figuring out something that works for you.

    2 Week Post Op Stall

    Me too, I stalled at 13 days. Weird because calories were between 600-800. But today....22 days post op, dropped 3!! Trying to just concentrate on the spring, thinking of where I will be! Good luck, keep us posted!

    December 13th

    December 13th sleevers!! Lets all update and see how we are doing. I am trying to get a sense of what is normal, average, ect. I am 3 weeks post op today and down 16 lbs. I thought I would be down more, but seem to have stalled at day 13, losing only 1 lb in the past 8 days. Is this normal? Is this possible? My calories are between 600-800 per day. No issues with the Protein or liquids. Soft food stage for me, fish, yogurt and soup. I know its crazy, but I was not anticipating a stall for at least a month or two. My surgeon said the first 6 months is where the weight will fall off, after that its up to me. Hoping to hit a milestone in January.
  14. Don't do it. I had a friend who did this very soon after her RNY gastric bypass. Not only was it disgusting, she stopped losing and started gaining. Its not physical hunger causing this, its mental hunger. Find another distraction. Get up and move when you feel this way (we are less likely to be eating if we are standing and walking). Good luck!

    Does anyone gets out of breath easily?

    I would check with your doctor. Doesn't have to be your surgeon either. Sounds like something is going on since you didn't have it preop. Were you at the same activity level?
