  1. Today is my 1 year! I'm 116 lbs down from my high on my best days. I've been plateaued at 165-160 for over a month now. I'm still really motivated and the energy hasn't gone away. I do want to lose another 15-25 lbs though and the plateau is driving me batty. Still I am SO HAPPY I DID THIS.
  2. I have so much more energy since the surgery back in August. It sounds like most everyone else is feeling similarly since theirs, its so exciting! What sort of things are you all doing with the new energy, favorite exorcises, projects? I've been trying to keep my exorcise routine varied and would love to hear what everyone else is doing!
  3. I left the store after trying on a ton of jeans.The ones that fit best?? Size 11!!?!!! out of the juniors section!?! It doesn't seem real. I don't look in the mirror and see it.  I look and feel different, but I don't feel like I could fit into a size 11...despite having tired them on three times and repeatedly/obsessively checking the label. 

    It's weird having options, not having to go to the end of the track and hope something will fit. I found I had to talk my self out of getting some others that fit just so so, in the past if something fit acceptably, I felt I needed to buy them, because who knew when I'd find another that was close? 

    I'm excited and stunned. And now have one pair of jeans for the days when I'm tired of wearing yoga pants. 

  4. Plateaus, They are the worst!! Even if they're a natural part of this process. I'm questioning Everything I eat and obsessing over everything. Can't wait to get off the plateau! It sounds like you're both kicking butt!! But I am right there with you loathing the stall.
  5. That is AMAZING! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! You're rocking this change! I'm going through the clothes thing to a lesser degree. Only my clothes with elastic in them still fit at all. The second hand stores and hand-me-downs are my best friends right now.
  6. Happy New Year! And the time really does fly! I was stalled for almost 2 months. My surgeon’s office said it may be caused by monotony in the diet and to try new things here and there. Awesome that you are still losing inches! Ooo that's really good to know! I have been eating the same things and doing a lot of the same work outs. Maybe I should mix things up a bit! Thank you!
  7. Happy New Year everyone! I don't post a lot, I kinda lurk. But I love hearing about everyone's process and progress! I'm 5 months post op tomorrow! I can't believe how much time has already gone by! I'm currently stalled out, I blame letting too much sugar back into my diet over the holidays. I think I'm still losing inches though, and hopefully the scale will start moving again soon. Hope everyone's New Year is of to a great start!
  8. I've been stalled pretty much all month and got dumped last night. I'm not giving up, but starting 2019 in tears was not on my to do list.  Urg.

    So, so, sooo much better! Things like tying my shoes, bending over to pick things up... just normal everyday things are SO much easier. I'm also making my 10,000 step goal almost every day now! I still have a ways to go, but I'm so happy with how its been going so far!
  10. I'm up a pound this week. I know fluctuations happen, but it still drives me nutts. Here's hoping it doesn't last long.

    I'm a little over three months PO. I'm down to 195 from my surgery day weight of 255. The first pic is from a month or so before surgery and the second is about a week or so ago.
