  2. Has anyone felt dizzy or fainted after having the surgery. I have fainted twice since my surgery. The first time I went to the hospital and they could not find anything. I am wondering if its related to the surgery.
  3. I had surgery on 8/16/17. I am currently down 66lbs. I found this dress I wore in my 20's as I was cleaning out my closet and decided to try it on.

    Thanks everyone!
  5. I actually tried to eat everything during dinner. I just had a very little of everything. I am 3 months out from surgery so I am able to eat but I want to make sure I don't start cheating on a regular bases. I still need to lose 40lbs. I am already down 60lbs since the surgery. What are you doing to maintain during the holidays?
  6. Congrats, you look great!
  7. I am 5'8" and my highest weight was 256. I was sleeved 8/16/17 and currently weigh 196. It does appear that it takes longer to lose when you have a lower bmi. My BMI was 38 the day of surgery but I had high blood pressure. While I did want to get off of the meds I also wanted to lose the weight. When I got to 200lbs I stalled for several weeks. I have been at 196 for a few days now. How is everyone making out since you first posted this post?

    Thank you everyone! These are some great meal options!

    Thank you! I eat a lot of sea food as well. I am trying to expand my options.
  12. I am 11 weeks out and feel the same way. I lost 56lbs but have been the same weight for weeks now. I am just going to roll with the process. My sister reminded me that I don't want to lose too much to fast because I might start looking sick. So as long as I lose 33 more ponds in the next 3 months I'll be on track.
  13. Congratulations! You really look great! Can you provide a sample of what you eat in a day?

      Thank you!! I usually have a protein shake in the morning, then some fruit for snack, my favorite for lunch is the chili from Costco deli, then a protein bar, or some type of nuts for snack, and for dinner I finish the chili

  14. How are the August sleevers doing? Are you losing weight? What are you eating? Are you doing meal prep and exercising? I'm at another stall and I know I need to increase exercise.

    Wow, you look great! Down 73lbs that is a lot of weight! What do you eat throughout the day?
  16. I'm going to try it. I stopped taking vitamins because I was having so much difficulty with them.

    Yes I can relate. I keep having stalls. I think I'm going to start exercising to see if that will help. I also should start cooking at home instead of choosing healthy meals that are already prepared. Some days I don't even want to eat and have to force myself.

    Are you pleased with your results?
  19. I'm two months out and my taste buds have changed. It's a struggle for me to find things I like to eat. Prayerfully it will help with the weight loss because before the surgery there was nothing that I disliked.
  20. Most likely you still have gas and swelling. It will start going down! Keep following the doctors instructions.

    Are you pleased with your results?
  22. I lost 50lbs but have been at the same weight for weeks. I still can't eat a lot and I don't know why I'm not losing.
  23. How much protein do you think you're getting in?
