    10 months, is it over or a stall?

    I have been the slowest loser for the past 3 months. It's very slow for me now. I lose around 1 lb per month at this point. I have no idea if this is a long stall or if my body wants to stay at this weight. I have no idea. My BMI is 24 and I am wearing a size 6.

    50 and Up Sleevers

    I don't think age has effected me at all. I have lost 70 lbs in less than 7 months. I started at a lower BMI too. MINDSET is everything.
  3. I thought I was the only one. I had severe energy loss and was so tired for the first five months. it has only been the last month where I am feeling more like myself. I listen to my body daily. I rest more and allow myself to slow down. Even now at 6 months post-op I have to eat my protein and be mindful to give my body the fuel it needs. I never used to take naps but now I take them whenever I can. Good luck!!!!!!
  4. AMAZING.... you should be so proud of yourself. I am exactly six months out today too.
  5. PURE INSPIRATION. You look so happy and beautiful.

    Frustrated with stall

    I am 5 months post and I have stalled similar to another poster. I will lose 1-4 lbs in weight and then stall for 3-4 weeks with no loss. I have lost 58 lbs. I think the best thing to do is see this as a lifestyle and not a diet. This allows me to feel like no matter what the scale says, I am progressing in a new healthier way. My body does not lose weight each week. However, I am smaller and my clothing sizes goes down even when the scale is not showing weight loss.This has been completely different for me and it messes with your head. It worried me at first, but I see that my journey is mine alone and I can't worry or compare what others journeys are. I have no choice but to be more patient with the progress. It does work.
  7. I am just past 5 months post op. I find if I eat my protein first that I am full and I do feel the sleeve limit. If you choose to eat carbs first you will be able to eat more. I have to remind myself to be mindful eating. I take this commitment with surgery as a tool and I have to utilize the tool. For me, I do not buy the carbs so they are not in my home. I go to protein first and tell myself if I want a bite or two of something after than it's a very small amount. I rarely get to eat the other stuff because I FOCUS on protein and good carbs/vegetables and fruit first. I have zero carbonation and I still crave it. I simply won't allow myself to go there. Drink your water and this helps to keep you full. As my treat every day I have Bai water as a reward (coconut /pineapple) that is 10 calories for the entire bottle. It works for me.

    Secret sleevers?

    I choose to only tell my husband, children and best friend. It was my journey and mine alone. I am three months out and maybe it is just me but I still go out to eat with friends and people all the time and no one notices how little I eat because I order smaller and eat slow and haven't draw attention to anything. I think you would be surprised. When I am offered items I no longer eat, I simply say I am not eating sugar and going light/no carbs for a while. Crazy but it has worked for me.

    Is too fast good or bad?

    This is a great case of how we all are different in our weight loss journey. So impressed with you. You should be proud. I celebrate EVERY pound. This is why we simply can't compare our journey with each other. You are doing amazing!!!!
