    irol888 got a reaction from FluffyChix in Lowest Weight since 2004   
    So this morning I stepped on the scale and saw 179.8. I haven't seen such a low number in 15 years! Of course, I keep thinking 2004 was just 5 or 6 years ago so there was a double WHAAATTTT?? moment for me. I'm over the moon! Had RNY on November 28, 2018 and have lost 96 pounds so far. I truly can't believe it. It's a constant journey of mind and body changes. Still struggling with my "FAT" mind but I'm working on it. Here's to finally kicking this weight issue in the nuts!

    irol888 got a reaction from SusieQ2019 in Rate of weight loss   
    I learned to not compare my weight loss rate to others. I know! Its hard to do! But this is your journey and you're doing fantastic!! Remember, another person losing a ton of weight fast may have started at a much higher weight than you. I had RNY on Nov 28, 2018 and was concerned that I was slowing down - 2 to 3 pounds per week. My nutritionist did a check on my muscle mass vs. fat and I'm retaining muscle which means I'm doing it right. You're doing great! Congrats!

    I felt exactly like you with the same fears before my RNY. But the moment I had it, I never looked back. If you follow your doctor's orders, you'll do fine! I remember reading before I had the surgery people saying the only regret they had was that they didn't do it sooner. I couldn't imagine then but now I TOTALLY GET IT! Good luck and know that you have a lot of support.

    We are our biggest critics. You will do fine especially that you are exercising. Currently I spin, work out on the elliptical and treadmill and was jut cleared weights. You will be successful continue to do what you are suppose to do. Don't pay no attention to those that loose an enormous amount of weight in one month. Your success is your very own and you are doing amazing so far.

    irol888 got a reaction from justmetj in When did your weight loss slow down?   
    I'm 6 months post-op RNY (surgery was on 11/28/18). I'm just starting to slow down a bit. Was losing 10-15 pounds per month, now about 7-8. Averaging about 2 pounds per week. But my nutritionist told me I will slow down and that's ok. Time to stop worrying about the number and trust the process! Only regret is that I didn't do this sooner!!

    irol888 got a reaction from JessLess in Alcohol   
    I'm 6 months post op RNY. I've been currently enjoying a couple of vodkas on the weekend. It goes right to my head so I have to make sure I'm not driving and/or at home. I log it into my food journal so I can see the 100+ calories and that makes me ensure I don't over do. I stay away from any sugary juices or mixers. Nutritionist said I can mix with club soda every once in awhile. I still feel uneasy since I do like to have a cocktail every once in a while.

    I thought the same exact thing 6 months ago, post op RNY. This is where we change all our previous thought patterns. Trust the process! It's going to work! I remember asking my nutritionist, "What if it doesn't work for me?" She put her hand on my arm and just told me to keep up the good work, eat right/exercise and finally trust. I never trusted anything as much as I do this process. It will work!!

    irol888 got a reaction from Dianamar in Two days out   
    It's the hardest time, first few weeks after surgery. I had my RNY on 11/28/18 - just hit 6 months post op. I remember that first week SO vividly! I cried, I stomped my feet, I even felt a bit of regret. But all that was quickly replaced with joy and a sense of accomplishment once I started to see my body heal and lose the weight. You can do this!! Believe me!! Trust the process and you will succeed!
  22. Congrats!
