    How much exercise?

    I don't know which path I want to go down, I guess ultimately I want to "WANT" to work out and get in shape and of course, lose weight while doing it. I feel like there are so many different kinds of exercise to do and I just want to do the ones that give me the most weight loss and yet still make me feel good and makes me want to come back for more.

    How much exercise?

    Good to know I have never used the elliptical before so I will begin with no resistance until I'm comfortable and then increase it. They really should have a book called "Exercise for Dummies" I would def buy one!!!!!!
  6. I took three weeks and I personally needed every bit of it. Everyone is different though so it's hard to tell. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful Best of luck.

    How much exercise?

    Thank you BigViffer for the info. I have no idea what I'm doing to be honest so you just gave me a lot of great information for me to use. Greatly appreciated.
  8. I am going to start working out on my elliptical at home and I just was curious how much should I be working out a day? Is 45 min to an hour enough or should I strive for more as I work my way towards a healthier me? I realize I will most likely only be able to work out for 20 - 30 min to start but what should my goal end up being per day?
  9. Thank you all so much for your thoughts and comments. You all make me feel so much better!!! I will keep doing what I’m doing and try not to let the scale get me down.
  10. Everything I’m doing is exactly the same. I get worried when I am doing everything right and see a gain. It scares me that I’m going to be one of the “failures” with this WLS surgery.
  11. I have been eating the same as always between 600-1000 calories a day getting my protein in etc etc and I gained 4lbs this week. Why why why????? ☹️☹️☹️
  12. I had no pre-op diet of any sort. He said he only makes people that are over 300lbs do that because of the size of their liver (well I was only 7lbs away from that weight so I don't know why he didn't make me do it). None the less all went great

    Husband is pissed

    I had a really tough time with my husband in the beginning (when I first decided this is the route I wanted to take). I remember going home from work and explaining to him about what this surgery was about, how much healthier it would make me and how I really needed to do this for ME. My husband is not overweight, he is gorgeous to be quite honest and he is my very best friend. But he was very insecure that if I lost the 60lbs I gained from the past 5 years we have been together (plus more) that I would be hit on a lot and eventually leave him. This was in January, my surgery was Oct 24th. It literally took him all of the 10 months for him to be supportive and on my side and realize that my weight has nothing to do with why I love him and I would love him just as much if I was think as I do when I am overweight. He is very supportive of me now and there cheering me on 100%. Praying your husband changes the way he thinks as well.
