    When did you start losing hair?

    at about 4mos post op. It sucks, but it stops eventually.
  3. Not necessarily; just allow myself to eat more carbs than usual.
  4. Hey guys, I am a few weeks over my 5 month PO from VSG and let me tell you I have not really regretted this surgery. On sunday's, I allow myself a "cheat" day so I don't stall and it helps to drop me in lbs for some odd reason. On average, I am about 950-1150 calories a day and on a low-carb diet. Sometimes I feel like this is on target for where I should be, but then there are days where I feel sooo hungrrrryyy and but then my stomach is telling me I'm full. Where are you guys at with your progress? Stats are listed and are up to date.

    I was sleeved on the same day. It all depends on your height/weight ratio and how much protein and water you're taking in. The higher the BMI, the faster the weight will fall off at first until it'll start to slow down when you are closer to your goal weight.

    Massive gut not shrinking

    Yes same. I feel like my back rolls are still the same as if I was at 270 lbs still. Maybe it's just us focusing on them too much. My tummy still kinda hangs which annoys me, as well.

    ~December 2017 Sleevers~Updates

    Hey guys! I'm coming up on 3 months next week and feel good! I've been able to tolerate most things. I had a donut today actually and it kinda didn't sit well right after so I won't be doing that again anytime soon. My stats are pretty much accurate still. I stalled for a few days here and there especially when that time of the month sneaks around. I'm on a modified keto/low carb diet for the most part, high protein, at least 120oz of water daily, and 30 mins of cardio. Many people have said I already look "skinny", but I'm not even close to it. Hope you guys love your tool as much as I do!

    Running/exercise again?

    Did your weight loss slow down after getting into kickboxing again?

    Carbs per Day?

    Yes, I feel great; though days where I don't drink much water I do feel lightheaded. I do at least 30 mins of cardio a day! I'm not working out too hard due to the fact that I'm not eating enough calories yet. I average between 800-1000!

    2 week stall

    Have you been hitting your water goals? Someone your height should be around 120 oz. I increased mine to about that much and have been constantly losing and haven't had much of a stall since. It also helps to eat more carbs than usual one day to surprise your metabolism. Works for me and may work for you! EDIT: You may also be burning more calories than what you are eating; this will mostly cause a stall as well.

    Carbs per Day?

    My surgeon said to stay around 50g, but since i'm following (modified) keto/low carb, I stay around 20-25g or less.

    7 weeks post op, not losing

    That seems very low for calorie intake. How many weeks out are you?
  15. HW: 270.3 SW: 258 CW: 233.8 Stalled for about a week or so. Finally losing again.
