    Hi everyone. I have not been on here for a while. I guess life has been happening, but I have had the most discouraging summer and need some advice. I have only lost but 5 pounds in the last 8-10 weeks and I am flipping out. I don’t know what I am doing wrong. I just need advice as to what to do different. I have been doing everything the way it should hitting all my goals. Low to no carbs low to no fat. I exercise as well and walk a ton. Below are my STATS: HW: 298lbs SW:262lbs CW:215lbs GW: 170lbs I had RNY 2/7/18.... just want to get some advice on to what people have been doing during stalls. I am the point where I want to go back to liquids for a while. HELP!!!!! I am grateful everyday to be alive and to not be gaining weight, but this is discouraging.

Any ways been doing good which is good. I did mess up on some cravings this week- I had real ice cream and my oh my it was good until I dumped.

    Well I work at the downtown hospital and yes it is fantastic.
  7. My doctor has always been positive. The outlook he has is “look I am trying to help you stay on this earth for as long as you can..... so if you want to help then that would be very appreciated” so I did and I got RNY on 2/7/18 and now I’m 33lbs down and I see him in a week I’m hoping to be close to 40lbs down and hopefully ready to eliminate all diabetes meds.... All I can say to you is no one can make this decision for you, everyone will have mixed feelings, so you have to follow your heart. What do you want? I understand where she is coming from, but WLS is a tool. You have to use it wisely if not it can easily be the most regretful decision you have made. I have been overweight 10years and it took me a good 8 years to determine WLS was a fit for me. I did weight watchers, I joined exercise programs, I tried eating healthy, I eliminated foods, and just was not losing how I believe I should have so I opted for surgery. Now that I have had it, I still exercise, I still eat healthy, I still have eliminated a lot of things and the difference between then and now is the weight is coming off faster. As long as you are willing to try and never give up there is no reason why this won’t benefit you. Good luck!

    Morning Everyone...... STATS HW: 298lbs SW: 262lbs CW: 229lbs (I am under 230 finally) GW: 160lbs to 170lbs Total loss since RNY 2/7/18 is 33lbs. I know it feels slow but it is steady so idc. It is coming off whether it takes 6months or 24months- I am getting this weight off. I can say diabetes is resolving no more tachycardia and my waist is looking slim, plus I feel great. I do have off days where I feel just tired and exhausted. I hope everyone is doing great.
  10. Please do and keep us posted. We are all in this together. I do hope you feel better and get some relief soon. I still think try to cut out those narcotics. They do more harm in the long run.

    I don’t have my weekly weigh ins. I don’t want to get devasted so I do measure myself and have been since March and I have lost a tremendous amount of inches. I am overall happy with everything but I do miss my caffeine. everyone tells me I’m shrinking so if people notice it’s a good thing.... you are doing great fluffy I am going to have to start calling you barely fluffy lol
  12. I am sorry to hear that, but I don’t think narcotics are going to help. Eventually your body if it hasn’t already will build a tolerance to it and it won’t work which is when they will try to increase it and increase it until nothing more can be done. I would consult with your WLS surgeon again, you would be surprised how many acute and chronic diseases we can develop post our procedure. You could be lacking in vitamins, nutrition, fluids. I would start with the surgeon that gave you WLS- this could be more common than you think. Idk if this will work, but I have chronic back pain all the time too- aquatic fitness classes help soothe you pain and strengthen the core muscles in your back also it may help with alignment. I hope you feel better soon.

    Forgot to post yesterday..... hope everyone is well.... hardest week of my life, I kind of have been bad about liquid intake and protein intake and it’s kicking my butt. Probablly why my body has slowed down on weight loss. STATS: HW: 298lbs SW: 262lbs CW: 231lbs Total lost: 31lbs since surgery and 67lbs since my highest S/p RNY 2/7/18 (64 days out). Idk I feel like I should have lost more... any advice on that.... then I think about it and I’m going down steady so I am okay with that as long as I go down... I can def. tell a difference now especially in clothes. I was a size 22/3x or 2x and now I am a size 16/XL or L. I am losing more volume which is weird that it won’t show in my weight...... Aqua fitness here I come.... everyone is doing great so happy to hear everyone is positive and motivated.... can’t wait for summer time..... Question: what’s your fav thing to eat? Post me some recipes I am in need of a change up too.... lol

    Post RNY 2/7/18 HW: 298lbs SW: 262lbs CW: 240lbs Constipation is for real, but over all I think I am doing okay. I am losing inches and am able to tell a bit in my face that it is getting smaller plus clothes is bigger on me. Yay! I do wish the scale would move faster but overall I am happy with my progress.

    Hey great.... I had mine 2/7/18 so we are rather close. My progress, I feel, I feel has been slow, but I am doing over all good getting back to my work routine and life routine. I have good and bad days. My good days consist of getting everything in. My bad days are when I don’t and when I have trouble swallowing. It is like my throat narrows out. I have more good days than bad so for that I am very thankful. What has your month been like? STATS? Wishing you well and congrats! FYI peeps, I made stir fry with shirataki noodles. I didn’t eat the noodles but the stir fry chicken and carrots was good all 2 oz of it haha. It was low sodium and practically no carb meal.

    Rough day today.... need some advice.... I keep juggling from 243 to 245. This is so annoying and frustrating I know stalls last but I just was hoping more progress yesterday I only drank water and kept my meals small no more than 400 Cals tops yesterday. I am just discouraged I feel like I am doing something wrong. I am cleared to work out so I am going to work out today by the way for those of you that don’t like to work out or don’t know how to work out. Check out resistance bands on amazon they are a great cardio muscle work out and it doesn’t really feel like a work out. I am sore today but feel great physically. Mentally I am in the gutter. Ugh!!! Anyone having stalls? Hw:298 lbs Sw:260 lbs Cw: 244.4 lbs was 243 lbs Post RNY 2/7/18

    Had shrimp and I did well. Tasted the same and was delicious. Bought jumbo shrimp and maybe ate about 2 lol I really tired to push it because it was and wanted more. I was the oppose of R.Kelly “my mind was telling me yes but my body was telling me no” so that was that
