    Sleevedincali got a reaction from Coexister in Slow WL   
    Hi there! I have my three month post op appointment this Monday...I started at 278 and today am 233...so 45 pounds in 3 months...I believe that is on the slower side and I am totally fine with that and here is why: I am walking only a few times per week (waiting to see my levels at appointment), making good food choices 97% of the time, and feel AMAZING. I am trying to be realistic and do what works for me because going out and starting some crazy lifestyle that I know is not realistic will only lead to failure for me...the other things about losing slower are that people dont ask crazy "weight loss" questions and my skin isn't too bad (yet)...Ive had multiple stalls and I know for a FACT that one of them was due to too many "BLT's"..."bites, licks and tastes"! When I stopped the BLT's, the weight started coming of again. Lots of water...lots of sleep and good vibes seems to be the recipe for success:)

    Dont get discouraged, this is a long process and perhaps your body is getting used to its new weight. Make the appointment, talk to your DR, make sure there are no issues like Thyroid holding you up. If you think you may be back sliding or relying too much on slider foods, then maybe make an apt to see a nutritionist. Just know that there are others struggling and you are not alone

    Hi there! I am 10 months post op and dont usually respond to these types of posts but I have to say that I did not even LET myself eat a french fry until like 6-8 months post op......and Ive been able to keep my consumption of fried/crappy foods to a BARE minimum and I know that I will have to forever. I am concerned that you are already dreaming of re-entering those foods into your diet once you are able to. The real answer is: you never really can! and If you are not able to restrict yourself to "a few fries" then you will not be able to have long term success period...just some food for thought

    Sleevedincali got a reaction from Nubbinsd22 in More Exhuasted At 3 Weeks Post-Op   
    Hi there! I am almost 3 months post op and let me tell you the fatigue is something you cannot understand until it hits you! The first two weeks post op I was a champ! Finally at week 3, I became completely depleted and thought I would never feel normal again! I was sleeping, napping, sitting, moping, lol! I noticed around week 5 I started eating more and was slowly getting more brave and confident in my energy levels. At six weeks I went back to work and found that the normalcy helped with the mental struggle of being soooo run down! I PROMISE that it gets better...mind you I had ZERO complications, was pretty active before surgery and have a husband two kids that I couldn't ignore so I had to bounce back quickly! My first "real meal" albeit very small, was around 5 weeks...it was Frozen Salisbury steak, mashed potatoes and french green Beans. It became my go-to until I was able to eat everything else. I started out getting about 1/3 of the steak down, a tablespoon of potatoes and beans...now I can eat one "steak", 1/4 cup beans and a little potatoes if there is room. I still avoid almost ALL bread/complex carbs...I started at 278, today I am 233. I only walk...waiting until 3 month appointment to check levels and start more exercise. Best decision I ever made...hang in there always

    (e hug) The scale does not define you unless you allow it to. Keep trucking, I'm going uphill with my anti-depressant absorption and just getting out of bed, if I can do this so can you dear. It's a bump, that is ironing itself out, so will this stall...

    Yup. I stay away from the scale. It will seriously mess with my head. I'm 3 months 3 weeks post-op and can squeeze into a size 6/7. I keep telling myself I'll weigh at 6 months but who knows I may do it sooner.

    Something else to think about...even though my cravings are soooooooooo much lower than before, once in a while I slip up and have a handful of goldfish, a few potato chips, etc. The difference is, I used to eat the entire bag in one sitting!!!!!!!! You will not be perfect and really, perfect is not realistic.....

    OK I KNOW about stalls but Im SOOOOOOO over it! Have literally been bouncing between 226 and 229 for two damn weeks! I am quickly reminded why people throw in the towel while "dieting" cause the scale can get in your head! But I have to mention my clothes are falling off but damn it that scale!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
