    I was right about Aunt Flo coming for a visit, so can expect a stall for 5 days, then MAYBE I'll see Onederland! Lol! It was like a cosmic joke. See 200.00 one day, then it bounces back up a couple pounds for a week, works back down to 200.00 AGAIN, then my period. BLECH!!!
    Meryline, you are doing so amazing! 200g is nothing! Bet you'll see the new # tomorrow!
    As a kid, I steadily gained weight until I was 215lbs at 17 years old. As an adult, I had a 5 year period (18-23 years old) when I was under 200lbs. Not sure that I ever believed I could/would get back there again. Maybe this stall is a way of letting my mind catch up a bit with the scale.

    Girl, you are winning our little "competition". I have gained and lost what I had lost, and now back to the lowest point. I'm 200g from seeing a new number. I do kg, so for me to see 6x.x is huge, I don't remember the last time that was. Maybe 20-25 years ago. You are doing awesome.

    Sorry you have to wait so long. I would however ask if there is a waiting list in case someone has to drop out once you have all your requirements and are cleared for surgery. My original date was April 18th, but I asked to be on the waiting list and got moved up to March 20th. I went from having 6 weeks to go to only have 13 days. And now I'm lucky to be surgery twin with the lovely @Berry78

    Thanks. It's on @Berry78 You might not be, but I am. I stalled for almost a month just around 160, but then a steady drop the past 2 weeks. I was expecting another stall.
    But you are on! Not that I'm going to do anything different thought lol

    Hmm.. So if I can lose at the same rate as you.. then I'll be at goal in 5 more months.. which puts me at goal at a year postop. I seriously doubt it will happen, but a gal can dream, right? Lol!
    You have done FANTABULOUS!

    @Apple1 Late dumping syndrome happens because of an increase in starches and sugars in your intestines. At first, the extra sugar causes your blood sugar level to rise. Your pancreas then releases the hormone insulin to move sugar (glucose) from your blood into your cells. This extra rise in insulin causes your blood sugar to drop too low. Low blood sugar is called hypoglycemia. And for us the food moves very rapidly from our stomach to our small bowls, meaning there is no food for the insulin to work on. Something like that.
    And thank you!

    @Berry78 I have only been donating for a week, they won't allow you until at least 4 months post op, and that is only of your full blood work comes back perfect. It is very heavily regulated. Also, I don't think I have been working out as hard as you think I have. 2 weight training a week, and walking/nordic walking and some swimming. I'm not going back to full swimming until after Christmas because I know it drains me of calories, and walking and weight training I was used to from before the surgery, so not something new for the body, just less calories.
    I'll talk to my NUT this week and see what she says. They didn't say anything against it when I mentioned it at my check up, but I'll ask again.
    The incident was a late dumping because of too much sugar, nothing else. I will take make sure it doesn't happen in the future though, for sure.

    Hey just an FYI, donating (plasmaphoresis) can cause someone to be temporarily low in protein...I would think that would be even worse when you have a malabsorptive situation like you do with early GB.
